Racing Series Details
The Bradenton Runners Club Racing Series is an opportunity for members to compete with each other in a points-earned scoring system. Each year, a series of local races are hand-picked, ranging from 5Ks to half marathons. Throughout the year as races are held, runners who elect to participate in the series will score points based on their overall finishing place overall or in their age groups. Regardless of finishing position, each participant will receive points just for finishing. The better the finishing position, the more points are awarded. At the end of the year, points are accumulated and the person with the highest points wins the competition within the designated age group. Racing series winners are announced at the BRC Annual Awards Banquet held in February.
