Trivium Southeast Michigan Running Series

Trivium Racing is making things a little more competitive! Now you can race and earn points towards a series award (including free racing!) at the end of the year.  If you’re looking for variety, challenge, and great events, we’ve got you covered! This year we will run on road and trail, we will complete between 3.1 and 13.1 miles, and we will never be bored with these carefully crafted events. Below you will find the current calendar of included events. We may be adding a few more in the next couple weeks as well! Compete in at least 4 events to be eligible for series awards. We will count your top 6 events towards series points.

We will also have a Club Cup Challenge. So if you register for a race as part of a running club or corporate team, you will earn points for your team towards the Championship Cup at the end of the year! Check the details here.

2022 Running Series Calendar:

Current Series Standings

Rules

  • Athletes must compete in a minimum of four events to qualify for a series award.
  • For series awards, age groups will be based on ten year increments starting 19 and under. Participants will be scored in their age group based on their age at the end of the calendar year.
  • Points will be given to the top 10 overall male and female finishers at each race, as well as the top 10 in each 10 year age group (meaning some athletes will get points in both categories at each race). Once all races are complete, the overall series winners will be taken out of their respective age groups and those age group results will be re-calculated.
  • Points will start at 500 for first place finishers and decrease by 50 points for each placement. (1st = 500, 2nd = 450, 3rd = 400, etc.)
  • Places 11 – 20 will receive 25 points.
  • Places 21 and up will receive 10 points.
  • For events that have two distances, the longer distance will receive double the regular points.
  • Athletes will be scored based on their BEST 6 finishes (if you win points in more than 6 events, we will take your top 6 scores to decide your finish placement)
  • At the end of the season, if there are ties in an age group or overall standings that affect prizes, two tiebreakers will be used.
    • The first tiebreaker will be head to head performance. The two tied parties’ finish times will be compared where they competed in the same race and the winner of that particular race will be the winner of the tie.
    • If this tiebreaker does not clarify positioning a second tiebreaker, total points across all events, will be implemented.
