RULES
All six BTRS races and each distance within that race qualify you to score in the series, your best 4 points scores (races) at the end of the series will determine your place in your age group and overall.  Overall winners are not eligible for age group awards.  All races, regardless of their distance, are scored with the same number of pointsThe scoring does not favor long distance runners over short distance runners.  The first male and female finishers get 100 points.  The closer you are to the winner's time, the higher the points you receive.  Men and women are scored separately. To learn more about why we score the series the way we do, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions Page.

* Please note that winning the series is not about being the fastest runner or the best athlete, it is about how many series races you run and how you score in each race.  It is about having solid results for multiple races.  Because only your top 4 races are scored, runners can often improve their scores by running more races and improving their finish time in relation to the winner.

*Additionally, we recognize winners in each race by giving awards to the 1st place man and the 1st place women.top 3 male and female finishers.
