Pts. Challenge Information
BlueCircleSports and Therapeutic Associates Inc. are proud to be teaming up together to bring you The Points Challenge.
Here’s how it works, we will be giving points to each of the City Of Trees Marathon Association Inc. events, starting with the Freezeout Challenge in January and finishing with the City Of Trees Marathon in October. Points will be given for race participation and overall placement, and age group placement. We will have different points for completion of the different distances, so the longer you run the more points you will receive. All events involved can be registered for individually, you don’t have to run them all to be involved in the Pts. Series Challenge, however you are awarded significant points for completing each race.
Events and Participation Points for Series
6 Points for overall win
5 Points for overall second
4 Points for overall third
3 Points for age group win
2 points for age group second
1 point for age group third.
There will not be any double dipping from awards, but everyone will receive participation points for finishing.
Tie breakers will be 1) most of races competed in. 2) Number of miles run in the point series events. 3) Best performance in the longest distance event.
At the City Of Trees Marathon in October, The Points Challenge presented by BlueCircleSports & Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy will be presented to the top FIVE Male and Female participants in the point series. This way you can choose the distance you want to run based on what you are training for, or what you want to focus on instead of having to follow a planned tract. Also this allows for everyone to compete against each other, without having to run all the races in a series, if you think your four races will hold up against someone who has run 5, let it ride and see what happens. No need to sign up for the “Series”, just sign up for each race you want to compete in and we’ll calculate post race. For those of you who play fantasy football, it’s kind of like that, we’ll calculate based on participation and or performance at each event. For age group points we will use the 10 year range for the points series, regardless of each individual race awards. Series points will be based on top three overall, and top three in age groups, using the 10 year age range. If someone places fourth in their age group, but the overall 1-2 or 3 came from the same age group, the fourth place person will move up accordingly, and be awarded the points for third.
