1. Official Race – An official race is an outdoor event, no less than one mile in distance, open to the public, usually advertised by postings on major running related websites, (e.g., HitekRacing, Cool Running, RunningintheUSA, etc.)
An official race is timed and the results are usually posted publicly.
An official race will count for the town in which the start line is located.
An official race is usually organized / planned by (or for) an organization, agency, school, religious group, or charity from (or associated with) a particular town.
Note 1: Invitational only and indoor events are not eligible for town credit.
Note 2: Self timed and self-starting events are not eligible for town credit.
Note 3: If an official race offers “Early” or “Late” start options, runners may avail themselves of those opportunities and may submit the town for credit as long as they are included in the official race results.
Note 4: Historical exceptions include the Salmon River Race which starts in East Haddam, but counts as Colchester. The legendary nature and difficulty of the mid-January Jurale Tradition Run allows it to count as Meriden town completion.
2. Race Participant – The participant must meet all the requirements of an official race (as described above) for town credit. These requirements are:
A. Complete race registration
B. Meet race entry requirements- e.g. fees, donations, waivers, etc.
C. Meet race identification requirements, e.g. bibs, timing chips, and/or other forms of participant identification.
D. Participant completion times must be included on official race results and are ideally posted on major running websites.
E. Complete at least 50% of the designated race distance abbreviated only due to injury, illness or unanticipated emergency.
