2020 Long Course Series Points

We are excited to announce that we will continue our tradition of a four race trail run series during the Spring of 2020. Races include:

  • Garland Mountain Half Marathon and 10k - June 20, 2020
  • Battle of Blankets Creek - June 27, 2020
  • Rope Mill Spring Thaw Trail Run - August 1, 2020
  • Pine Mountain Trail Run - Nov 8, 2020

Sign up for the Entire Trail Run Series at once and choose a bonus Hooded Sweatshirt, Headsweats Hat or Headsweats Visor! Details on the Registration page.

At the series finale (Pine Mtn Event) we will present awards to the top three finishers in each category, in both the long and short course distances. You must finish 3 of the 4 races to be eligible for series awards. You must also be present at the Pine Mtn Event on Nov 8 to receive your award, as awards are not mailed. Series points do not transfer between short and long courses or across age divisions, so if you are going for an overall series award, you must race either the short course in all races or the long course in all races, and you must race in the same age category across all four races. For 2020 we are using everyone's age on Dec. 31, 2020 as their "race age" to avoid age-up confusion midway through the series.

Series Rules

You must FINISH in 3 of the 4 races to be eligible for series awards and you must also be present at the Pine Mtn Event on Nov 8 to receive your award. Awards will not be mailed - any unclaimed awards and prizes will be raffled off to our fabulous race volunteers and those who stick around for the awards ceremony at the Pine Mtn event.

Series points do not transfer between short and long courses, so if you are going for an overall series award, you must race either the short course in all races or the long course in all races.

Series points do not transfer between age groups, so you need to race in the same age group for the entire series.

All races count toward final series rankings, there are no dropped races.

In the event of a tie in an age group, the racer with the higher placing at the Pine Mountain Series Finale event will receive the higher ranking.

The top 20 in each age group will receive points..1st place will receive 20 pts, 2nd will receive 19 pts, and so on down to 20th place, which receives 1 pt. You will also get 1 bonus point for each racer you beat, so if you place high in a large field, you will receive more points than the same placing in a small field.

Inclement Weather

The race will run rain or shine, however, the Race Director reserves the right to cancel or modify segments of the event as deemed necessary for participant safety or preservation of trail. No refunds will be given in the event of an act of God that requires cancellation of the race for the saftey of participants. If the event is rescheduled all entries will be transferred to the reschedule date. Once the race has started, no refunds will be given due to delayed start or early conclusion of the race.
