As a result of inclement weather, all participants at the Cupid Shuffle were transferred to the 5K. We understand that this impacts the Series Scoring and have made the following decision. The Cupid Shuffle will be eliminated as a scoring event in the 10K ONLY. The 10K Series will be scored on the participants’ best 3 of 5 races instead of the best 4 of 6. The 5K scoring will remain as originally planned and will be scored on the participants’ best 4 of 6 races. All participants who participated in the Cupid Shuffle 5K have been included in the 5K Series results.
The age groups are 10 & under, 11-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+.
Winter Run Series points will be updated the Thursday following the previous race.
