Rutherford Outdoor Coalition


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 four 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.

  • 1st place - 10 points
  • 2nd place - 8 points
  • 3rd place - 7 points
  • 1st Place Masters - 7 points
  • 1st place in each age group - 5 points
  • 2nd place in each age group - 4 points

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.
