FTRS Series Rules and Scoring

Scoring and Points System
Rules

Scoring and Points System

Runners who finish each race will accumulate points as follows:

Each time you finish a race, you receive points. Your points will accrue each time you race and you will be able to see in the Results how you stand in your age group and overall. You can choose to run any number of races (1-6). Your final score will be the sum of your race points. If you run more than 5 races you have an advantage...we take your best 5 out of 6 races for your final race points.  :)
 

Rain/90+ degree race days - If it's raining or 90+ degrees at race start, the race director will declare that race a bonus points race.


Your age at registration - Your age for the series will be your age on the last race in the series, i.e, June 8, 2017.
 

Age Groups - Male and Female Age Groups: 0-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+.
 

Awards - Since this is a Series, we DO NOT present medals at each race, however, kids love to get something, so kids will receive a FTRS finishers token at every race.  Awards will be presented to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place Series Points winners in each age group at the Series Awards Party on Thursday, June 15 at Fort Rock Brewing. See more about the Awards Party on the HOME page.
You are rewarded for consistency and effort!
The race series is a way to encourage friendly competition and appreciation for the runners who participate in the Folsom Trail Run Series.  Most importantly, have FUN!

 

RULES

1. Walkers may start at 6pm. If you are interested in walking, please check in no later than 5:45pm and let us know you will be starting at 6pm. Walkers must finish no later than 7:45 pm.

2. Race registration/bibs are not transferable. 

3. We cannot offer race refunds or transfer funds to other races events.

4. Bib numbers must be visible at all times during the run and when crossing the finish line to be recorded. If we cannot see your number, you may not be scored!

5. Please respect our parks and do not litter! If you drop something, please pick it up.

6. Portable music players or any device requiring ear buds are not recommended.  Due to the nature of trail running, many trails are narrow and passing can be challenging if you cannot hear someone coming up behind you. One ear bud may be acceptable if the volume is turned down low enough to hear others around you.

7. Pets and pacers are NOT permitted on the course.

8. Non-registered runners are NOT permitted at any time Running as a bandit (not registering) in organized events is inappropriate even though you donít consume drinks or food. The organizers expend a tremendous amount of time and money for permits, park monitors, volunteers, staff, measuring and marking the course, course maintenance, park fees, insurance, and publicizing the event. Registered runners would not be able to enjoy the group experience if these efforts and costs were not made by the event organizers.

9. All registered runners must stay on marked, designated trails. If you go off-course, go back and re-enter where you went off course.  Cutting the course will result in disqualification for that race.

10. You must notify a race official in the registration/scoring chute area if you are dropping out of the race.

11. Federal, state and local laws and ordinances must be abided by at all times.

12. Participants must sign a race day waiver. Participants under the age of 18 years old must have a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.

13. Race protests must be filed in writing with the Race Director, Diane Cressey, within 30 minutes of completing the race. All protests will be reviewed and amicably resolved by the parties involved with the ultimate decision made by the Race Director.
