2017 Allegheny Trailrunners Point Series
The Allegheny Trailrunners Point Series presented by Michelob Ultra.
Not only are we a TrailRunner Magazine Trophy Series but Allegheny Trailrunners is proud to bring you the Allegheny Trailrunners Point Series presented by Michelob Ultra!
How it works: Entering in our races automatically enters you in our Point Series challenge. You accumulate points over our three races; Dirty Kiln, Rock N’ The Knob and Sweat for Vets. The point system rewards on consistency and not just on a stellar race performance on just one or two races. (No “sandbagging” on one race since you did well on two!) And you don’t have to win any of the races to become the season champion or run just our longer long races to be champion.
How the points work: Performance X Race Distance + Attendance = Points.
There is a male and female division. The first 20 places are awarded a point in descending order. 1st place person gets 20 points, 2nd place person gets 19 points, 3rd gets 18, etc.. Then we multiply your performance points by the race distance. Our long race participants are awarded 8 points and the short distance gets 6. Finally you accumulate 10 points for attending each race.
The payoff: At the Sweat for Vets Post-Race Party, we will crowd the winners! (First through third by gender). Prizes include Ray-Ban sunglasses, Brooks running appeal, Camelback Hydration gear, cases of Michelob Ultra and more.
More details coming and updates over the season! Good luck runners!
