Run Wild Missoula introduces the Spring and Fall Race Challenge in 2013, a competition for Run Wild Missoula members. Here's how it works:
Run three out of four races in the Fall or Spring Race Challenge and we'll keep track of your score. The finishers will receive a super cool prize. (We don't know what it will be yet, but we promise you will like it.) The age-graded results make it an even playing field for RWM members and allows for an element of surprise for the winner. Scoring will be done similar to a cross-country race. If you come in first place you'll get 1 point, if you come in 30th place you'll get 30 points. The person with the lowest score at the end of each series wins. Participants can run all four races in the series and eliminate their worst score since only three out of the four races count in the challenge. Participants must run the specified distances in the events. For example, some events have a 10K and a 5K, but we have indicated which distance qualifies for the Race Challenge Series. We have attempted to pick a variety of distances.
You must be a current Run Wild Missoula member in order to participate. You must also indicate on your race application that you are participating in the Race Challenge. If you're not sure if you're going to be able to participate in three races in the series, please mark that you're participating anyway. It's easier to delete you from the challenge than to add you later.

1st Woman: Christine Everett
