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
Your final score will be the sum of your race points.
If you run more than 8 races you have an advantage...we take your
best 8 out of 10 races for your final race points.
scoring is based on your finish time compared to the
winning finish time. The winning time for the race is
divided by your time and that percentage is your
score. Points are calculated separately for the men and
women, i.e., men use the men's winning time and the
women use the women's winning time to calculate 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. Each runner will earn an
additional 10 bonus points for not wimping out!
Your age for the series will be your age on the last
race in the series.
Male and Female Age Groups: 0-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49,
50-59, 60 & over.
Awards: Since this is a Series, we DO NOT present medals at each race. This also helps keep our race fees lower. Awards will be presented to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place Series Points winners in each age group at the Series Awards presentation at the end of the Series, following the race on June 23rd and as soon as the race scores are tabulated. 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 Trails Sprint Series. Most importantly, have FUN!

1. One hour time limit - 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.
2. Race registration/bibs are not transferable.
We cannot offer race refunds or
transfer funds to other races events.
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.
