Earn Your Free Hat

Do you like to run for swag? Would you like a prize to reward your consistency? Might a brim enhance a rainy run for you?

You’re in luck! For those that run in 4 or more Winter Trail Series events (in the 2014-15 season), you’ll earn a FREE Northwest Trail Runs hat made by Headsweats! These are great hats with smart details that make them fantastic for running. These running hats are made of breathable material to evaporate sweat, include a terry-loop headband to catch your sweat, the underside of the brim is black to help you squint less at bright scenery, and even the fastener at the back is ultra small and lightweight to be both comfortable and adjustable. Plus, they’ve got the classic Northwest Trail Runs arch logo! Sport your local trail running pride, on whatever trail you may be on.

Men’s Standings

Here’s a review of the Winter Trail Series rules and procedures:

  • Your best 4 performances in the Winter Trail Series will rank you in the series standings!
  • If you want to do fewer events, that’s okay! Series events are open to everyone.
  • You may register for events individually, or use Series Registration to sign up for more than one event at once for your own convenience. Using Series Registration is not required to be part of the series competition.
  • If you complete any of the 2014-15  season Winter Trail Series events, you are automatically entered.
  • Points will be awarded based on finish placement, and this will be done separately for both women’s and men’s finishers.
  • The 1st place woman and 1st place man in each event score 100 points, 2nd place scores 95, 3rd scores 92, 4th scores 90, 5th 89 and so on. Places 64th and lower score 30 points.
  • The series rewards those with the most points, regardless of what distances they ran.
  • In the event of a tie, each runner’s highest point score is used for the tie-breaker. If two runners have identical highest point scores, then the next highest point scores are compared until the tie is broken.
  • The top series participants receive special recognition at the final Winter Trail Series event, Frost Eagle, on February 7th, 2015.
