B21 Running Race Series 2016
B21 Points After 15 RACES!!
B21 Race Series 2014
Participants will receive a B21 Race Series shirt for entering the series. Anyone who is registered for the Race Series and completes a minimum of 6 out of the 7 races will also receive a B21 Race Series Iron Runner Jacket!
Participants results will be tracked and standings will be posted on our RESULTS page of this website.
We will score only the 7 races that are officially in the series, however we are giving participants a chance to make up the 6th race for their jacket. Participants must run at least 5 of the 7 races in the series and one of these bonus races to make their 6 races for the jacket.
The bonus races are:
- Lenox Loop Race
- Dalton CRA 10K Race
- Matty’s Run
- Dash for Dana
- Run for the Hills
- Monster Dash
Prizes will be awarded to the top overall Male and Female runners in the series, as well as age group awards (prize categories and amounts will be determined by the number of participants in the series).
Points will be awarded as such:
If 10 or more race series runners participate in an event the top race series finisher will be awarded 10 points, second will be 9, third will be 8 and down on the line to tenth place will earn 1 point.
If there are less than 10 race series participants at an event the first finisher will receive the number of points as participants. (Example only 8 race series participants enter an event first place would get 8 points, second 7 and down to eighth place would get 1 point).
You may score points for all 7 races this year. There is no minimum number of races that need to be entered to be counted towards the over all point total winners. (Example if you can accumulate more points in 4 events than anyone else accumulates in their best seven races you will be ahead of them for the prizes.)
Points are only awarded to B21 Race Series participants. If you finish third in the race but the first two are not registered for the B21 Race Series then you would still score the top points available for that race.
Registration for the series closes just prior to the start of the Steel Rail Half Marathon. After the race has started registration will be officially closed. Up until that point anyone may join the series and participation in any B21 Race Series event prior to registering it will be counted toward your 6 out of 7 races to receive a jacket, but you we will not retro-actively re-score points for someone who joins later. (Example, you run the Kids’ Place 5K but did not sign up for the B21 Race Series but decide to do so when you go to register for the SRHM, you will be given credit for completing the Kids’ Place race towards your 6 out 7 but you will not receive any points for the Kids’ Place race even if you placed higher than other runners who were registered prior to the Kids’ Place race.)
In the event of a tie after your best 7 races those places that are tied will split the cumulative total amount of the prizes for which they placed.
