The Non-USATF 5K teams will be age and gender equalized by Compuscore using the USATF approved WAVA grading. The WAVA grading means times of all team members are adjusted to reflect internationally recognized and expected differences by age and gender. (Points reflect the runner's pace as a percentage of the nominal world record pace for that distance by age and gender.) Three members of each team score. For example a team of three males in their 30's could have their adjusted 5K points compared to the age and gender adjusted points of a team of two older males and an older female. The top three teams receive awards.
Runners can be on only one team.
Non-USATF Team Rules: Teams may consist of any group, e.g. school, club, relatives, friends, and neighbors. Teams must consist of at least three members, the top three team members will score. There is no limit to the number of entrants on a team. Scoring will be done automatically by Compuscore. Team members are also eligible for individual awards.
The top three teams receive awards.
To enter as a member of a team, the applicant must include the name of the team and the team captain on the online or printable race application. ALL NON-USATF TEAMS MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED. This requires team captains to organize their teams before race day. Any race day issues will be sorted out at the Team Table in the registration area.
