CMRA Championship Rules

For 2016, CMRA will award a championship. Races will be scored throughout the year, beginning with the Lake Arbor 5K run in early January and culminating with the Bluff Lake Nature Center race in December. The best finishes during the year will be scored for each runner, up to a maximum of ten races during the year. The five runners with the most points at the end of the year will take the championship awards. That is, all runners are eligible for the championship, with a total of five awards presented to the top five scorers (i.e., first through fifth place), to be presented at next January's annual meeting. A separate championship will be scored for walkers with a trophy for first place. Any ties at the end of the year will be broken by reference to the date of birth; ties go to the oldest runner.

Points are scored for finishing first through fifth in each age group (male and female) at the club's races:

  • One point for fifth place;
  • Two for fourth;
  • Three for third;
  • Four points for second;
  • Five points for first place
  • With the overall winners of each race scoring six points (that is, one point more than age group winners).

Please note: It doesn't really matter in which age group the points are earned, points are points. There is only one tally sheet for runners, so whether points are earned in multiple age groups or possibly for winning a race, they all go on the same tally sheet. For example, if runner X wins the January race, then wins his age group (but not the race) in February, and finishes 3rd in his age group in March, he would have a total of 14 points (6 + 5 + 3) regardless how old, whether he had a birthday in there somewhere, or he was she.
