SERIES SCORING AND AWARDS
Each race (except the Dirty Snowflake Prediction Run), as well as the overall series, will have the following awards for male and female: Top 3 overall male and female, then 1st place in the following 5-year age groups: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, and 75+. Overall winners will not be eligible for age group awards (no double-dipping).
For the series, you will score points overall and in your age group based on your placement in the events. Events will be scored using a base of 200 points for a 1st place win, 199 for a 2nd place win, 198 for 3rd place, etc. Your highest 5 scores will be summed to determine your placement overall and by age group. Overall winners will not be eligible for age group awards (no double dipping). The final race in the series, Dirty Dirty 15k, is weighted and points are multiplied by 1.5 for that event only. The top 3 overall and 1st place in each age group will be recognized and receive Dirty Trail Series Awards at the Dirty Party.
