Registration for the series is simple, just show up. Findlay Striders will be timing each race and automatically tabulating the series results. Run three events to be eligible for series awards and get invited to the end-of-the-series party. Run all four events to increase your odds of winning more prizes. Participants will score overall and age group points based on placement in the event (1st - 1 point, 2nd - 2 points, etc). The lowest three scores will be summed to determine placement overall and by age group. The top overall per gender and age group will be recognized and receive trail series awards at the party.
