Runner of the Year Award
1) Runner of the Year
ROY is a series of 12 races spread out over the calendar year 2016. Points are awarded to each CCRC member for each race completed.
The list of 2016 ROY races is posted below.
2) CCRC Membership
You may join the CCRC at any time during the year. If you join by April 10, you will receive ROY points for any race you did prior to April 10 as well as all future races.
If you join after April 10, you will receive points only for races done after April 10.
3) Multiple Distances
If there are multiple distances at a particular event ( for example, the Healthcare Classic has a 5 K and a 10 K ), ROY points will be awarded whichever race you choose.
4) Age / Gender Scoring
We will again be using the age / gender scoring system to award points in each race. Runners generally get somewhere between 40 and 70 points for each race.
5) Age Determination
Your age for the year will be whatever your age is on 12/31/2015. This simplifies the points process by not having to change people’s ages throughout the year.
6) ROY Spreadsheet
The ROY “leader board” spreadsheet will be updated on the club’s website as soon as possible after each race.
At the CCRC’s end of the year banquet, the top ten point-getters will receive a very nice award. The way to make it to the top ten is to run a lot of races. Participation in the ROY races it is far more important than speed.
8) Benefit for Juniors
Any junior ( ages 1 – 14 ) who does a minimum of 4 races will receive an award at the annual CCRC banquet.
9) Volunteer Requirement
Anyone competing for the ROY awards must choose one of the ROY races at which to volunteer. Please choose one of the races and email your choice to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “ROY Volunteer” in the subject box.
Sign up early. Once the volunteer slots fill up for a particular race, you will have to pick a different race.
Your volunteer assignment will be determined by the race director.
