RUNNER OF THE YEAR
Any Southern Oregon Runner member in good standing is eligible. A SOR member must finish at least (8) runs during the series to qualify for an award. SOR members 9 and under must only finish 5 such runs.
Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female in each age division.
HOW DO YOU SCORE?
Points can be scored through race participation, volunteering and placing in the top in your age group.
For each race that a SOR member finishes, they will be awarded 5 points.
For each eligible race that a SOR member places in, the following points will be awarded in each age group.
First = 15 points
Second = 12 points
Third = 10 points
Volunteers: Each volunteer will receive 15 points for volunteering in the first race they do so in and 7 points for every race thereafter. This means that you can't run in that event.
