K&Q Runner Requirements

K&Q Runner Requirements


All races are age-graded and 10K-normalized using factors published by World Masters Athletics (formerly World Association of Veteran Athletes). Your score is the average age-graded time of your best 6 races which total at least 25 miles. If your 6 fastest races are less than 25 miles, then your other longer K&Q races will be substituted in place of shorter races until your 6 scored races total at least 25 miles.

Further details on how K&Q scoring is done can be found in Earl Brown's article: How King and Queen Race Results are Calculated.


Awards are presented at the annual SFTC Awards Banquet.

2 special awards (Mr. and Ms. Mileage) will be given to the runners who log the most K&Q race mileage over the season.

Male/female awards will be given to the top 3 overall. There will be no masters or grandmasters awards.

There will also be 3-deep male/female age group awards, (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- 80, 85 & up).

Age groupings are based on a runner's age as of December 31 for the competition year.
