Point Awards
Participation: For each race that an SOR member finishes they will be awarded 5 points.


You do not have to volunteer for a race; however, we encourage volunteering. Each volunteer will receive 15 points for volunteering in the first race they do so in and 7 points for every race thereafter.  This means that you can't run in that event. You need to be available for the race director for the entire event. For the cross-country series, volunteers will receive 5 points for each of the three races they volunteer for.
It will be up to the race directors to supply the names of the volunteers.


Race Directors
Will be awarded 15 points for all of their hard work.
