Will they finish strong enough to cement those titles? We’ll see. Cash is paid out to the top five overall men and women and then again to the top age group winner. Medals go three deep for overall and age groups. There is double dipping!
The t-shirts are being made up and shipped out as we speak and should be here by race day. They are looking quite spectacular and can’t wait to see the select few people who ran each event, the All Terrain Runners, wearing them proudly.
Now a few things to know ahead of this Sunday’s cross country race at Franklin Park…
10:00 – Men’s Masters 8k
10:50 – Women’s Open & Masters 6k
11:30 – Men’s Open 10k
As far as scoring goes, it’s going to be a little different for the men’s race. Since the masters and open men will be running different distances, a virtual split will be used to determine scoring for the men’s races. To properly score this, a theoretical 8k split will be assigned to the open men based off of their overall 10k pace. These theoretical 8k splits for the open runners will be combined with the 8k results from the masters and scored just like the rest of the events in the series. Since the masters and open women run in the same race, there will be no need to do this for the ladies. Masters men: please enter and compete in your masters race as you normally would. You do not need to run the open 10k to count in the series scoring.
For more info, check out the USATF-NE race entry form that has all the details.
Please check out the standings and make sure you are properly accounted for. If for some reason you don’t think your results are properly reflected there, please let us know now, especially if we don’t have down as having completed all four prior events. We’d like to make sure everyone who earned a t-shirt gets one.
