Track Shack Running Series - Frequently Asked Questions
The Track Shack Running Series is a six race series sanctioned by USATF, B-Tag scored and run on certified courses in distances of 5k, 4 Mile, 5 mile and 10k. The Series begins in August and concludes in March. Following a Grand Prix format, the Track Shack Running Series uses a points-based system based on results from each race. Runners and walkers who score in the top overall or top age group positions receive points at each of the six events.
Points are earned by participating in any Track Shack Running Series event and placing in the top ten in overall or age group categories.
Individuals who finish at least four races and accumulate the most points to receive awards and are recognized at the Running Series Award Ceremony.
Florida residents ages 8 & up.
Your age group for the Running Series is determined by the age at which you enter your first Track Shack Running Series race.
For example: Annie is 24 years old and will turn 25 years old on September 1st. The first race is on August 16. Because she is 24 years old at her first Running Series race she is eligible for points in the 19-24 age group for the ENTIRE Running Series.
Individual race results reflect your age on race day.
One time registration for the six Track Shack Running Series races.
One time registration for the six Track Shack Running Series races plus the Distance Dare thus registering for all eight races in the Series.
The Distance Dare is a fun challenge where one can register to participate in both races at UCF 5 miler & 2 miler and Winter Park Road Race 10k & 2 miler.
Additional Running Series points will not be given for completing the Distance Dare. To view SuperFan Benefits, please see Fanatic.
Being a FANATIC means that one signed up for all six races at the beginning of the season. Running Series points are awarded based on performance at each Running Series Race. For example, runners placing in the top 10 positions in overall and age group categories receive Running Series points. So even if you're a fanatic, if you aren't scoring Running Series points your name won't be listed in the Running Series standings.
Being fast is an essential part of getting Running Series points! For more information, please see Scoring.
