1. XTERRA Racing Age is the age you will be on December 31st, 2016. We need to fix a firm age for the year so people won't race in June at one age and in August at another if they have a birthday in-between. For example: If you are 29, but turn 30 on Dec. 20th, you will be racing in the 30-34 division all season.
XTERRA Trail Run Series age groups: <9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80+, Physically Challenged.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Races scheduled after September 18, 2015, will become part of the 2016 XTR Series. Therefore, the XTERRA Racing age is based on your age on December 31st, 2015.
2. Enter as many XTERRA Trail Runs as you can - To contend for a regional series title you will need to race in at least two events. You should run in as many events within the regional series as possible to score maximum points.
There will be at least 3 races in our series. The additional races will be announced soon, so please continue to check back with us for updates.
All 3 races will count towards your point.
It is not mandatory that you race in all events in your Series, but your chances of winning the region are much better if you do. You will be allocated "0" points for races in your Series that you do not enter.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Points will be given to both the marathon and half marathon as they are both endurance races. The 5k will not receive points.
3. Accumulate Points - Points are awarded to the top 15 finishers in each age group. Please see the points breakdown below. Current standings will be posted to XTERRAPlanet.com after each event. Points stay within the region you raced in and do not transfer (For example - if you won XTERRA Runnin' the Rocks you would get 100 points in the Georgia Series. Then you won the XTERRA Mission Gorge Trail Run and earned 100 points in SoCal Series. You would have 100 points in both Series).
XTERRA TRAIL RUN SERIES POINTS - awarded to each age group
1st - 100
4. Count them Up! - The athlete with the most points- by gender and age group- after the last race in the Series earns the title of XTERRA Trail Run Series Champion and earns free entry into the XTERRA National Championship Xduro in September of 2013. The exact date will be announced as soon as it is set. Series Champs can also race for free in the 5k or 10k offered at Nationals if they wish, but only the 21k Xduro is considered the national championship race.
