The Triple 5 Trail Series returns with a new spin for 2022. Three races will be held on Tuesday evenings during the month of May. Each will be a 5 mile course at Munroe Falls Metro Park. The park’s well groomed trails are perfect for beginners as well as seasoned runners. Improve your finish time at the 2nd and 3rd races and you hit the jackpot!
SERIES SCORING: The first two races are scored by overall placement by gender. Top person in each gender earns 50 points, second place earns 49 points, and there is a minimum of one point earned per race. After the second race, you will earn 50% point bonus if you earn more points than you did after the first race (example: 40 – Race One, 46 – Race Two = 6 x 50% = 3 bonus points). The third race will be age-graded scoring. You will earn an age graded score (a percentage) and overall placements by gender will be determined by this score. As with the first two races, 50 points will be awarded to first, 49 points to second, and there is a minimum of one point earned.
AGE GRADING EXPLAINED: Age grading uses tables of “age factors” and “age standards” to put all runners, regardless of age and sex, on a level playing field. In particular, they allow runners’ performances, no matter what their age, to be corrected to what they would have been achieving in their prime years, and permit valid comparisons to be made between people of different ages.
- 100% = World record level
- 90% = World class
- 80% = National class
- 70% = Regional class
- 0% = An Athlete
