ORRC Annual Age-Group Awards Rules
Did you know that ORRC members are eligible for yearly awards? You have a chance to earn a prize for how you do in timed ORRC races*. You don’t need to apply for them…we keep track of it. You can always see how you are doing by clicking on the “Member Standings” item under “Events” on ORRC’s home page (orrc.net).
- You get “age group” points for how you finish in your age group. 6 points for 1st, 5 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd, etc.
- If you are trying for Runner of the Year or Masters Runner of the Year, you also get “Overall” points for how you do overall in races and there are “Overall Masters” points using the same format for runner/walkers over 40 years old. We figure that out at the end of the year.
- You have to do at least 3 timed ORRC events.
- You have to volunteer for at least one event that you are not running/walking or two events that you are participating in, or four hours at any other ORRC event.
- Walkers participating in a separate walking event (e.g. if there is both a 10K run and a separate 10K walk) are NOT counted in the running age group points. The walking event instead calculates points for the walker of the year award.
- There are no end of year walking age group awards. These awards are only for running events (since there is not enough demand yet among walkers to warrant separate age group awards)
- Age points are maintained by Russ Zornick. To find your points within a specific age group, use the Age Category tab.
- Must be a current ORRC Member! (Points are only counted during your membership period.)
- Your age on January 1 determines your age group for the year although points are awarded based on your age on the day of the event.
