RRFS POINTS CHALLENGE
The series will include both participation points and placing points. That means that a person need not be fast to qualify for year-end awards. Rather, they must be willing to train and participate in races throughout the season. But placing points are also encouraged for those trying to improve their times and age placement.
*All Results are based on your age at the end of the year before the event.
To earn participation points, an athlete must complete an event and earn a time. All forms of registration will be accepted and earn points.
