The off-road series has been created to offer USA Track & Field Mid-Atlantic members an alternative to road racing. The series seeks to introduce runners to different off-road races, i.e. trail running and XC. Our emphasis is on competition among club teams. Your questions or concerns are welcome.
RULES OF THE SERIES:
- Participants in the series must complete the respective entry forms for each race in which they wish to compete. Race entries that prove unreadable or contain missing information (e.g. age or gender) shall be considered void for purposes of the series.
- Individuals competing in the series must be registered as a 2018 USA Track & Field Mid- Atlantic member before their performances will be scored. Memberships are done online at usatf.org
- Individuals who register through another association shall not be eligible for series scoring until their membership has been received by the Mid-Atlantic membership chair.
- Each of the races in the series retains the right to manage its entries, to determine whether to offer prize money, and to operate its own award ceremony. The Off-Road Series will function “after the fact” by using the official race results to determine overall individual and team standings. It is intended that current standings shall be on display at each race.
- When possible, a MA-USATF Representative will be present to answer questions.
- The 2017 series offers Mid-Atlantic clubs a team challenge independent of the individual competition. See the Off Road Series Club Challenge Rules or series coordinator for details.
SCORING THE SERIES:
- The Masters Age-Graded tables developed by World Master Athletics (WMA) will be used to score results in each race. Each finisher’s time will be divided into the standard for her/his age and gender; this calculation will produce a percentage which will be used to rank performances in the Club Challenge.
- The top 3 individual finishers in the Open (19-39), Masters (40-49), Grand Masters (50-59) and Seniors (60+) categories will receive awards. Individual runners must participate in a minimum of 3 races to be eligible for awards. Age group for the year is determined by the age of the runner at the first event that he/she runs.
Off-Road Club Challenge Rules:
- 2018 USATF Mid-Atlantic membership is required for Clubs and Individuals
- Scoring: 5 club members (at least 1 must be female)
- Club transfers require a 90 day wait period, with a written request
