Therefore, your score is dependent on the winning time and how close you are to that winning time.
There will be overall awards and those for age groups of Under 20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+. The website clearly states that overall winners will be removed from age group awards, which I think is a fair way to do it.
The three highest scores over the four-race series will be counted, so it will also make a big difference who shows up from week to week. I like this scoring system because even if your individual race score isn’t that high, adding them up could put you ahead of someone who ran a faster time than you but only ran one or two of the races.
If you like low-key races, weekday races are probably a good pick for you. It’s after the standard workday, and everyone there shares the common spirit of kids let out of class early for a trip to the zoo. It’s the feeling of “sneaking around” to do something fun when in fact you aren’t breaking any rules in doing so. The race is sponsored by locally-owned running store Foot Traffic and by Bowl & Berry – have you had one? They’re delish.
