EVENTS

Our goal is to offer inclusive quality events to everyone

Events can be different distances, olympic/sprint/super-sprint.

 

The COMPETITIVE group will be made up of athletes trying to gain points by placement and earn their name on the SAMS Competitive Cup. The winner will have their name engraved on the trophy and be given a small version to take home to display. They will also be given 2 gift cards to be used at Runners Soul and Bert & Macs along with free entry to a race, in the series, the following year.

 

Example: 3rd overall but 1st in the 35-39 Female age group = 13pts

 

The SAMS Competitive Cup

 

The competitive cup points are awarded as:

 

Overall Points

1st - 10, 2nd - 9, 3rd - 8, 4th 7, 5th - 6,

6th - 5, 7th - 4, 8th - 3, 9th - 2, 10th - 1

Age Group Points

1st - 5, 2nd - 3, 3rd - 1

The RECREATIONAL group will be made up of athletes who supply a total goal time for all the races they are competing in. Must be registered in more than 1 race. The person closest to their goal time wins. The winner will receive a certificate and free entry to a race of their choosing, in the SAMS series, the following year. The runners up will be given a certificate for their efforts. The point structure is:

 

1st - Closest guessed time, 2nd - next closest, 3rd - next closest

 

Example: Tyler J. guessed a total time for 2 races of 2:54:34, he completed them in 2:50:30 and was 4:04 minutes away. Mary F. guessed a total time for 3 races of 3:13:22 and completed them in 3:12:20, and was only 1:02 away. Tommy P. guessed 5:42:21 for 2 races and completed them in 5:42:55 and was 34 seconds away. Mary F. would win as Tommy P. was over his guessed time and she was closer than Tyler J.

 

The TEAM category will be made up of all ages and genders. To win, a team must have at minimum; 1 male and 1 female competitor. The winning team will be determined by average placement through their races, and must race in more than 1 event.

 

The YOUTH category will be structured like the RECREATIONAL group. Guess a total time and the closest wins. This group will have winners from male and female and will be 5 placements deep in each gender. A certificate of accomplishment will be handed out. First place in each gender will be given a gift card to either Runners Soul or Bert & Macs.
