SFTC Long Distance Series

2023 Current Standings

The SFTC Long Distance Series was designed to support and promote long-distance races, (10 miles or longer). LDS is not a competition but is a recognition of runners who complete the required number of long races in the area.


To be eligible for the LDS each year, you must:

* 1 wildcard race (not part of the approved list) may be substituted providing that it is 10 miles or longer and proof of participation is provided to the LDS Manager. A wildcard race must be completed on or before the date of the Pioneer 5 Miler.
