USATF Mid-Atlantic Cross Country Series 2014

USATF Mid-Atlantic will support the 2014 Fall Cross Country Series. The XC race Series has been created to enhance the quality of cross country and promote competition in a 6 Race Series format. The Masters Age-Graded tables developed by World Masters Athletics (WMA) will be used to score results in each race. By using hte WMA scoring and age-graded handicap charts, competition will be able to occur among age groups for each race and the Series.

This will be the XC Series sixth season. Unlike the Grand Prix and Off-Road Series, the XC series does not offer a TEAM competition, the USATF Mid-Atlantic encourages each individual to experience the individual competition and accomplishment for each race in this series. The six races that are part of the XC series are USATF Mid-Atlantic Sanctioned events, ensuring the competition the highest standard of meet management.

 
Rules of the Series:
Participants in the XC series must complete the respective forms for each race they compete in. Race entries that prove unreadable or contain missing info (age/gender) will be considered void for purpose of the XC Series.
Individuals must be registered as a 2014 USATF Mid-Atlantic athlete before their performance from any race is scored. A USATF representative will be present at each race for membership sign up opportunity and to answer questions. USATF Mid-Atlantic membership must be approved before scoring is official.
Each of the races in the series retain the right to manage entries, offer prize money and present their own award categories. The USATF XC Series scoring will be completed after each race by using official race results. The XC Series scoring summary will be posted on the USATF Mid-Atlantic website after each race and at the completion of the Series.
The XC Series is open to all USATF Mid-Atlantic club and unattached runners.
 
Scoring and awards:
The Masters Age Graded tables developed by World Masters Athletics (WMA) will be used to score results from each race. Each finisher's time will be divided into the standard for his/her age/gender. This calculation will produce a percentage performance score for each race. Using the WMA percentage will enable competitive scoring among all of the age groups in determining the XC Series standings.
WMA% will be calculated after each race of the XC Series with the awards and overall placing determined by each runner's total score at the end of the Series. There will be separate gender scoring for the awards. Overall placing of the XC Series will be determined by the total sum of the athlete's WMA scores. A maximum of 5 races will be used for the final total score. If an athlete runs in all 6 races in the series, the top 5 scores will be used for their total scoring for the Series.

Overall Awards for the XC Series

USATF Merchandise will be given to the top 7 places in both the Men's and Women's categories. The awards will be distributed to the runners at the annual USATF Mid-Atlantic awards lunch. A runner must have scored in at least 4 of the races to be eligible for an award.
