You can point qualify for the XTERRA Trail Run National Championship (2013 Location TBA). We will be keeping track of the top finishers in each race event and awarding a North Carolina overall top male and female athlete in each age group. Participant bags and t-shirts will be provided at pre-race registration (each race). Top finisher medals will be presented to top 3 in each age group ⁄ category at the end of the series. XTERRA Racing Age – is age on December 31, 2013. A competitor´s age on this day is the age they will race all year long. XTERRA Trail Run Series age groups are: 9 & under, 10–14, 15–19, 20–24, 25–29, 30–34, 35–39, 40–44, 45–49, 50–54, 55–59, 60–64, 65–69, 70 & over. For Example: If you are 29 years old, but turn 30 on December 20th, you will be racing in the 30-39 age group. Enter as many XTERRA Trail Runs as you can (3 in North Carolina).
Accumulate Points – points are awarded to the top fifteen finishers in each age group at each race. All points will be totaled after the finish of the last trail run in your series. You only need to race in 2 of 3 races to qualify for series points (any race that has 2 distances you must run the longer distance to qualify for series points). Current standings will be posted to XTERRAPlanet.com after each event. Count´em up! – Different than cross country – the most points wins! The athlete with the most points – by gender and by age group – earns the title of XTERRA Regional Trail Run Series Champion and receives free entry into the XTERRA National Trail Run Championship. Tie Breakers – ties in points standings will be settled by: 1) head to head competition (if only raced against each other once), 2) the winner of the most recent race.
Dirty Spokes will be handing out medals and prizes to our overall top 3 male and female finishers for each race. We will also be handing out medals to our top 3 male and female finishers in each age group (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&O) - you must be present to receive your medal, we will not mail them to you.
