Here´s the skinny… we are using a "point system" to reward and separate the top finishers from the pack - the point system is similar to a NASCAR points system or possibly other "points series races" around the way in trail running, mountain biking or other similar athletic events. The Georgia State Parks Trail Running points series will be tracked ⁄ recorded by our staff throughout the 2013 calendar - starting with the Red Top Roaster Trail Race At Red Top Mountain State Park and finishing with the Georgia State Parks Trail Running Race at Victoria Bryant State Park. In order to qualify for the Championship you must enter 4 of the 4 events. If there is a tie at the end of the series in any category we will determine winner by fastest overall time (Georgia State Parks Trail Run - Victoria Bryant State Park Course) - if there is still a tie we will determine winner by rock, paper, scissors! Your race age will be as of December 31, 2013 (last month of the series - that will keep you consistent for the entire series in the same age category) For any of the Georgia State Parks Trail Running Races where there are two distances in one day (Example: 3.1 ⁄ 6.2 Mile) you must enter the longer of the two distances to qualify for the Georgia State Parks Trail Running Series Points... Please note a couple of these races serve as XTERRA Georgia Trail Running Races as well as Georgia State Parks Trail Running Races (by entering you will receive points for both series)!
We are pleased to offer the following categories: 14&U, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70&U.
WE WANT TO REWARD YOU!
After the 3rd race of the series (Fort Yargo State Park Trail Run) if you are top 5 in total series points in your category and have raced in 3 of the 3 races to date we will comp your entry to the series finale (how cool is that)! In order to receive ⁄ take us up on this you must mail a registration form in and write "COMP TOP 5" at the top (we will confirm with our records and process your registration). If you register on race day you will not receive this offer.
