CTC RUNNER OF THE YEAR RECIPIENTS*
Runner of the Year is awarded to the runner with the fastest times. Only Category 1 and 2 races qualify a runner for the Runner of the Year. A runner must be a runner in good standing of the CTC at the time of the qualifying race and only races while a member count. A runner must be the first CTC member in his/her respective age group to qualify, once qualified, all other races that the runner has competed in, both before and after qualifying, are entered into the statistics. A runner must run at least three races to be eligible. In the year that any runner ages up to another age group, the runner is eligible for the award in the age group in which he/she ran the most races. For deciding the Runner of the Year a minimum of three races are used for comparison, the longest distance races have priority for comparison, when possible the same races will be compared, then the same distances and then the longest distances would be the breaker.
CTC POINT SERIES AWARDS*
CTC members receive points for participating in the CTC sponsored Category 1 and 2 races. CTC members who wish to participate in the point series program must submit their names to the Point Series Chairperson. The first CTC member in a race receives 18 points (there are two age group categories): second place 17 points; third place 16 points on a descending scale to 8 with the 9th place CTC member receiving 8 points. Simply cross the finish line (no matter if you finish after 10th place) and pick up 8 points.
