The Fayette Striders race series started in 2008. It was created to keep members interested in the club, attract new members, and support Fayette County races.
In the beginning of each year the club decides; which races will be in the series,
and what difficulty and competition points will be awarded to these races. This
is typically based on knowledge of the course and the number of prior years
participants. When agreed upon, the list of races within the races series will be
posted to this page below.
Note: It is likely that during the race selection process, races have not
selected an actual race date for the year, and further more, this selection
does not in any means gauranttee that the race directors will host the race
for that year!
- At least 50% of the race must be held within the Fayette County limits
- The race must be at least one year old
Racers are assigned finisher points based on their performance in the race. Finisher points are then multiplied by the combined difficulty and competition points to award a certain number of points per race. The top seven highest points scored are summed to determine the category winners.FINISHER POINTS:
- 7 Points for Overall win
- 6 Points for Overall 2nd
- 5 Points for Overall 3rd
- 4 Points for Age Group Win
- 3 Points for Age Group 2nd
- 2 Points for Age Group 3rd.
- 1 Point for any other finish.

In addition to the age group categories, there is an overall category that totals all points for the year. In addition, racers are awarded 40 bonus points for each race beyond 14 races completed, thus making the series very interesting towards the end of the year!
