The ROC Race Series is a group of running events within Rutherford County held during a calendar year. To promote all the races as a unit and help each individual race; the ROC Race Series promotes the events as a series. Through the generosity of our five sponsors, we provide overall prizes at the end of the year for race series participation and individual results during the year. To be eligible for the series prizes a runner must compete in at least half the events. Each race is conducted on its own under their direction and rules—ROC assumes no responsibility for individual races. Results are submitted and tabulated as soon as possible after each event and presented on the ROC Race Series site.
For 2020 we have added one new race--The Cross Country Experience 5K at R-S Central. Again this year overall winners and age group winners will get trophies and new this year--medals will be awarded to 2nd and 3rd place finishers in age groups--but runners must have completed at least 6 of the races in the series to be eligible for any awards

The top three overall finishers and masters winner are not included in the age group points.
We do NOT use the age group results from an individual race to issue our points. Raw results are used and then re-sorted to fit our criteria. Thus for some races there may be differences between age group awards and our points.
The age you are in the first race you run is the age group you will remain in for the series points. That age group may be different than the age group you get points in at an individual race is you changed groups in mid-year. For example, if you turned 30 in July, you will score points in the 30-34 group in indiviudal races, but still remain in the 25-29 age group for total series points.

Keep your maps in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain and know how to use them. GPS units are great, but they are not substitutes for knowing how to use a map and compass.
