Series FAQs

How do I get entered into a race series?

Runners are automatically entered into our race series upon completing an event.  The top of the 
registration page will mention which series the points will count towards.

How do I get points?

Runners are given points based on their finishing place by gender.
1st = 20pts, 2nd = 19pts, 3rd = 18pts, ... 18th = 3pts, 19th = 2pts, 20th & after = 1pt.

Can my points count to multiple series?

Points can only go to one of the six series (5k, 10k, Endurance, Back of the Pack, Sippin' Series, & Kids).
For example, if you finish a 5k, your points will either go to the 5k Series or the Back of the Pack Series.

What is the Sippin’ Series?

The Sippin' Series is for our events at wineries, breweries, and cideries.  Runners will receive a free tasting or glass after 
the event as part of their registration.  Points from the Sippin' Series are SEPARATE from the other series. If you complete a 
Sippin' Series event, it does count towards your yearly event totals (for the free lunch, free running jacket, etc.).
There is no Back of the Pack Series for the Sippin' Series.

What is the Back of the Pack Series?

The Back of the Pack Series is new for 2018.  We’re all runners, no matter how fast we are and we want 
everyone to have a chance to shine.  In the Back of the Pack series points will be awarded:
– For the first Male and Female over an 11min pace for an event under a 10k (6.2 miles), 
you will receive 20 pts. 2nd place will receive 19 pts, 3rd = 18 pts, etc.
– For the first Male and Female over a 12min pace for 10+ mile events, 
you will receive 20 pts as well. 2nd place will receive 19 pts, 3rd = 18 pts, etc.

What qualifies me for the Back of the Pack Series?

The Back of the Pack Series is for runners who average a 11+ minute mile for a 10k and less.
For an event of 10+ miles, the qualifying time is a 12+ minute mile pace.
5k = 34:10, 10k = 68:21, 10-Miler = 2:00:00, Half = 2:37:19

Are there different series within the Back of the Pack Series? (Ex. Back of the Pack 5k vs Back of the Pack 10k)

There is only one Back of the Pack Series.  You can enter a 5k one week and a half marathon the next and those
points will be combined into one total.  Offering a Back of the Pack Series for each distance would only complicate
things for the runners.  We want to keep this new series, simple and exciting for our runners.

What qualifies a kid for the Kids Series?

The Kids Series is designed for 1-Mile events for kids 14 & Under.

What distance counts to the Endurance Series?

Any event 10 miles and longer counts to the Endurance Series.  We offer Half Marathons, Marathons, 10-Milers
and a 20k within this series.

What about odd distances (7k, 4-Miler, etc.), will they count to a series?

YES, they will.  The 7k & 4-Miler distances will go to the 5k.  The 13k & 15k distances will go to the 10k
Series.  Anything 10 miles and longer will go to the Endurance Series.  The Back of the Pack Series is eligible 
for these events as well.
