About: Since 2006, the Greenville Track Club Running Series has allowed GTC Members to accumulate points within their standard five (5) year age/gender group from racing events currently conducted by the club (determined by your age for the first RS race you enter this year). You will remain in this age group for the year.
Top 8 events count towards your total. We hope this will provide an opportunity for members to increase fellowship and fun, and improve member turnout at our races. (One more reason to join the GTC today!) (The GTC counts your points automatically - you don't have to do anything special other than be a GTC Member!)
2017 Rules include: 1. Runners stay in the same age group they start their first race for the whole year 2. Runners qualify for a t-shirt with 60 points in 2017 3. Runners who volunteer and can't participate in the race for this reason get 10 points (race director has to provide a list) 4. Runners participating in designated races which are part of the Running Series other than marathon and HM get 50-40-30-20-10 points 5. Runners participating in marathon or half marathon (SRF) earn 70-60-50-40-30 points 6. Runners participating in 20K PMRR earn 60-50-40-30-20 points 7. Runners participating in associated races which are not designated Running Series races (SRF, PMRR, Greer) get all 10 points
