MTC members can sign up any time of the year. Once enrolled, you will start earning points. Points are not retroactive.

Anyone who participates in this racing series will be placed in their respective age group based on their actual age on January 1, of that year. Whatever your age on January 1 is your Racing Series age group for the ENTIRE year. This rule only applies to the scoring of the racing series. It does not affect any age group awards that are handed out on race day.

You can enter as many of the events as you want, but you must have participated in at least 4 events to place first, second or third in the racing series end of year awards.

To win an end of year racing series award, you must have volunteered at one MTC event during that year. There are many opportunities to volunteer. These include, but not limited to: packet pickups, racing series events, MTC sanctioned events (not included in the series), being a race consultant, hosting a club connect, being on a MTC committee, helping at the summer beach runs or Adopt a Road Cleanups.

If the Overall winner is over 40, then the fastest male/female runner under 40 will receive 8 points instead of 6.

Only MTC members in good standing will be awarded points.

If there is a tie in the final standings, then so be it. There will be no tiebreaker applied.

Current Racing Series point totals will be posted on the MTC website and on the Facebook MTC member page. It is the responsibility of each club member to check their points and report any discrepancies.

Awards will be presented at the annual MTC Awards Banquet in January.
