Points Table
The point schedule has been revised to include races at distances less than 5km and more than marathon.  The points required for each category and age division are comparable to previous years.  Runners can earn the following points toward their year-end point total as follows:

Race Distance Points per Race
At least 1 mile but less than 5km 1 point
At least 5km but less than 10 km 2 points
At least 10km but less than 10 miles 3 points
At least 10 miles up to a ½ Marathon 4 points
Longer than a ½ Marathon up to a Marathon 5 points
Longer than a Marathon 6 points

The total points you accumulate during the year will determine the level of award you are eligible to receive. We encourage you to submit your application as soon as you have accumulated the necessary points for your award. And remember that in the 5th year and in the 10th year you qualify for an Award, you may ask for a handsome Crystal Award in place of the Gold, Silver, or Bronze Award you have earned that year. The years do not have to be consecutive.

Age: 40-59 years 60-79 years 80+
