Points and Participation Series

2020 Virtual or Bust Modified Participation Series for SRRC Members

2. Participate live or virtually (whichever is offered) and post an official finish time in 6 (or more) of the following 12 races during the 2020 season- any distance offered for the race counts!

  • Points will be greater for longer distances. A person may only enter ONE race for any race event. (Attempts to race multiple events may result in member disqualification.)

  • Five bonus points will be given for finishing *SRRC races.

  • Five bonus points will be given for volunteering for *SRRC races.

  • Abe’s Army does not count for volunteering since it is separate from the race.

The SRRC reserves the right to alter these rules when necessary.

  • Members must compete in a minimum of three of the five club races to be eligible for end of the year awards.
