Trail Running Series Rules

  • Runners are required to take part and finish in at least six out of the ten events and obtain points in the series to be in contention for any prizes.
  • Runners must take part in the correct distance for each age category to earn points toward the final log positions.
  • The overall Trail Run prize is only for runners who are running in the correct distance for their age category. U18s need to compete in the short course while over 18s need to compete in the long course.
  • Overall points are calculated for male and female riders/runners separately (in other words the top 50 males and top 50 females are awarded points at each race).
  • Prize Winners need to be present at the ROAG Series Awards Dinner in order for them to be awarded their prize/s and/prize money.
  • A Grand Prix Points System will decide the category winners with the top 50 riders /runners overall and in each age category being awarded points. At the end of the series, the riders/runners with the most points from their best six results overall and in each age category will be used to decide finishing positions in each of the respective categories.
  • Only your top six results will count towards your overall points. However, in the event of a tie at the end of the series, the seventh-best result will be used as a tiebreaker; if results are still equal, then an eighth will be included; until the tie is broken.
