Wetsuit Use and Water Temperatures:
We often are asked about water temperatures and wetsuit use. Race Day Events follows the USAT Water Temperature Recommendations (below). We do require wetsuits if the water temperature is below 60 degrees. These decisions are made based on temperatures taken on the day of the race.
This series features series scoring and awards for age group and overall series winners! Here's how the scoring works:
At each race the overall winners (male and female) will be assigned 1,000 points. All other athletes points will be calculated by taking the winning time/your time*1,000.
For those non-math majors out there - here's an example: Will B Goodbiker wins Lake Mills with a time of 60 minutes on the nose. Will gets 1,000 points. Bob A Fastrunner comes in second with a time of 61 minutes on the nose. We would take (60 minutes/61 minutes)*1,000 = 983.6, so Bob gets 983.6 points. We'll tally those points up for 4 of the 6 races in the series, and the person with the most overall points wins.
We've been working hard to make sure that we've got some awesome awards for both the overall and division winners in our series! The overall series will have the same divisions as the individual races. The Age Groups are: 19 & Under, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65 & Up, Athena, Clydesdale, Novice
Individual Event Awards:
In addition to the series awards, we've gotten some awesome prizes for individual races to give out in addition to our medals and trophies.
