Competition Rules:

  • Runners must complete at least 4 of the designated races.
  • Runners must be SFTC members on race day for a particular race to count towards their Trail Series score.
  • The runner's age group for the year will be determined by their age on the first race they run for the season.
  • Runners must sign up before or on race day for the trail series for the race to count by sending an e-mail to the Trail Series Coordinator at slnemeth@mindspring.com. Please include name, birthdate, e-mail address and phone number.
  • Runners must earn at least 5 SFTC Volunteer Points, 4 of which must be earned through volunteer acts at SFTC-owned or hired races.


Each of the Trail Series races will be scored as follows (similar to cross-country type scoring):

(a) Each Trail Series runner will be assigned points for each race corresponding to their position in the race relative to other Trail Series runners. For example, if a runner places 5th overall in the race but is the first SFTC member to finish, then that runner receives 1 point. If another Trail Series runner finishes 8th overall and is the second SFTC member to finish, then that runner receives 2 points.

(b) A runner's Trail Series score will be the sum of their points for their top three races.

(c) The runner with the lowest score wins.

(d) If there's a tie, the runner who has completed the most races will win the tie.


Awards will be given at the SFTC annual banquet as follows:

(i) Top 3, male and female

(ii) Top 3 masters (40 - 49), male and female

(iii) Top 3 grandmasters (50 and over), male and female

(iv) The overall male and female winners shall receive $50 gift certificates to Foot Rx Johnson City (courtesy of Foot Rx JC).

(v) All runners that complete four Trail Series races will receive a special award at the banquet.
