# QUAD X Cross Country Open will serve as the USATF Mid-Atlantic
Cross Country Championship for 2013
USATF Mid-Atlantic Cross Country Series 2013
USATF Mid-Atlantic will support the 2013 Cross Country Series. The 5 race XC Series has been created to enhance the quality of cross country and promote competition in a series format. The Masters Age-Graded tables developed by World Masters Athletics (WMA) will be used to score results in each race. Each finisher's time will be divided into the standard for her/his age and gender; this calculation will produce a percentage which will be used to rank performances in the series.
In it's 5th season, the XC Series will offer competition and awards to individual USATF runners but we encourage promoting club spirit in each race. The XC races used in the series are USATF Mid-Atlantic sanctioned events, ensuring the competitors the highest standard of meet management.
       
Rules of the Series:
1) 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.
2) Individuals must be registered as a 2013 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 membership must be approved before scoring is official.
3) Each of the races in the series retain the right to manage entries, to offer prize money, and present its own award categories. The USATF XC Series scoring will be completed "after the fact" by using the official race results. The XC Series scoring summary will be posted on the USATF Mid-Atlantic website after each race.
4) The XC Series is open to all USATF Mid-Atlantic club and unattached runners.
       
Scoring and awards:
1) The 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 % will enable competitive scoring among all of the age groups in determining the XC Series standings.
2) WMA% will be calculated after each of the races of the Series with the awards and overall placing determined by each runner's total score at the end of the Series. There are no team standings or team awards for the 2013 XC Series. There will be separate gender scoring for the awards. Overall placing is determined by the athletes total handicap score of 5 races in the XC Series. If an athlete competes in all 6 XC races offered on the series, his/her best 5 handicap scores will be chosen to determine their total series score.

Overall Awards (Men and Women)
USATF Merchandise will be given to the top 7 places in the Men's and Women's categories with the recipients recognized at the Annual Awards Luncheon. Runners must participate in at least 3 XC races in the USATF XC Series to be eligible for an award.
