Join us for this super-cool, mid-week, low-key fun trail race series at different parks around Monroe County. There are 6 races offered from April-September. You can register for each race separately, or commit to the entire series. All of the races will have a wave start, with the first wave in each of the first five races being at 6:30pm; the first wave in the final race on September 4th will begin at 6:00pm.

Race 2 - Wed, May 8, 2019 - Durand Eastman Park - Magnolia Shelter
Race 3 - Wed, June 12, 2019 - Location TBD
Race 4 - Wed, July 10, 2019 - Webster Park - Parkview Lodge

Points will be awarded based on finish time. The winner of any given race (male and female) will be awarded 100.00 points. All other runners in that category will receive a percentage of 100.00 equal to the percentage the winner's time is of their own time. For example, if the winner finishes in 20:00 and you finish in 25:30, you will receive (20 minutes/25.5 minutes) * 100 = 78.43 points (points will be rounded to the nearest hundredth).
This type of scoring emphasizes finish time over finish place, making close finishes less detrimental to series standings than scoring by place. Regardless of the order you place, the faster you run, the more points you receive.
A runner's series score will be determined by adding the top 4 scores from individual races. Although running a single race will enter you into the point series, running 4 races will provide a more competitive score. Running more than 4 races will provide an opportunity to improve your score.
At the end of the series, awards will be given to the top runners, male and female. Additionally, awards will be given to the top runner in each age group from 19 & under through 70 & up in 10 year increments, male and female. Age is determined by a runner's age on the April 17, 2019.

Due to the nature of trail racing, we do not have course maps for the Dirt Cheap Trail Race. You can count on there being hills and mud on course! Distances range between 4-6 miles.
Limited parking is available at the parks (not in the grass!) at Devil's Bathtub, Lookout Shelter and Algonkin Shelter, or you can park in the far lot (past ARHAUS) at the Culver Road Armory and carpool!
