The Trail Series Points Standings

2017 Southeastern Trail Series Points Championship:
For 2017 the Southeastern Trial Series Points Championship will consist of 7 races. In each race, points will be awarded for the STS Long Series and the STS Short Series. Below is a list of the STS Races and the points available for the Long and Short series.










Short Series points are only earned for the Short Races in the four races with two distances and Blood Rock. In the Run for Kids, the short race is the 10K, however runners may run the 50K or 12 Hour but you only get 6 points for those races, same as the 10K winner. The Saturday Stage of the Birmingham Stage Race is the only day that counts in the short series. 

Scoring: Scores will be separated into male and female standings for General Classification. The Master category is from 40 - 49 and Grand Master is 50 to 59 and "Ultra Grand Master is 60+. Scoring will be based on your time compared to the winning time and total points awarded are based on distance. Each mile counts as a maximum of one point. 

Calculating your score: [Winners Time (minutes)] x [max points available] / [Your Time (minutes)]
Example scoring of a 10 mile race for a runner: The winners time is 1:08:30 = 68.5 minutes
Your time is 1:33:15 = 90.25 minutes. (68.5 / 90.25 = .759) Total points available = 10 Points (Equal to the distance)
The winner receives 10 points. You will receive 7.95 points (10 X .795 = 7.59)
Overall Series winners will receive awards as follow. Duplicate awards will not be give in any category. 
Long Series: 1st, 2nd and 3rd Overall, Masters and Grand Masters, Male and Female will receive special awards.
