Current Series Standings: Results
Awards Winners By Category: Final Results
Awards Party: Awards and 10 Race Club Jacket Presentation is Wednesday, September 13th at Canyon Rim Park in MillCreek at 6 pm.
Note Regarding Award Winners: As stated below, racers that placed in the Top 3 Overall (Short Course or Long Course) are not considered for awards in their respective age category as they will receive an Award in the Overall Category. These racers are taken out of their age category and the qualifying racers below them move up (qualifying = participated in 5 races (long or short) ). You'll notice that when you compare the "Award Winners by Category" with the "Current Series Standings" there are racer placement differences due to the aforementioned as well as the fact that there are Age Category racers that did not qualify for an award because they did not race at least 5 times. Additionally, you'll notice that some of the age categories that are represented in the "Current Series Standings" are not listed in the "Award Winner by Category". This is because there weren't any racers who qualified (participated in 5 races) for awards in that particular age category.
Age Based Categories in 5 year increments (your racing age = your age on March 29, 2017)
POINT SYSTEM EXPLAINED
Trophies/Medals/Prizes will be given to the top 3 series point leaders in each age category at the end of the season as well as Overall Leaders in both the Short and Long Course. You must participate in at least 5 Wednesday Evening races to be considered for end of season awards. This creates the possibility of someone who has enough points to place in the top 3 in their category but does not qualify for end of season awards due to not having raced the minimum amount of races. In that case, the next qualifying participant on the points ladder will be considered for that award. Racers who place top 3 in an Overall Category (Long or Short) will not be considered for age category awards as they will be receiving awards for the respective Overall Category (Long or Short). This system favors the consistent racer.
Wednesday Races: 1st place=25 pts,2nd place=20 pts,3rd place=16 pts, 4th place=13 pts,5th place=11 pts,6th place=10 pts,7th place=9 pts,8th place=8 pts,9th place=7 pts, 10th place on (rest of participants) = 6 pts. In other words, everyone who runs will receive at least 6 points for racing.
Note: Points are accrued separately for the Short and Long Course. So if you run some Short Course Races and some Long Course Races, you will have separate points for each. The points from your Short Course and Long Course races are not additive. So if you're interested in accruing the most points, race consistently in the same course (Short or Long). That being said you can race a combination of both Long and Short Course races to reach the 5 race threshold in order to be considered for awards ie. you just have to race 5 times to be considered for awards.
