Catch Me if You Can!

Billings, Montana

Billings, Montana

Sat 2nd December 2023 - Sat 2nd March 2024

4 races

Organiser's Description

This isnt your typical race. Our Club Member winter race series makes every runner competitive, whether you are an elite runner or a back-of-the-packer. 
Well stagger the race start so that everyone is predicted to finish at the same time. Each runner starts based on their pace, with the fastest runner starting last. Faster runners try to catch up in a mad dash to the finish line. Hang out after the race and enjoy some hot drinks on us.   
 
Staggered Start
Check in starts at 8:45 a.m. on race day. Well start runners individually based on an algorithm that predicts pace. The race starts at 9 a.m. with all runners that have a predicted pace of 15 minutes per mile or greater. If there are no runners slower than 15 minutes per mile, well start with the slowest predicted runner. Well continue to start runners individually, finishing with the fastest predicted runner. Faster runners may have a bit of time to wait until they start. Feel free to warm up, but everyone must be within earshot of the start line at least 5 minutes before your start time.   
 
How to Score Points
You earn points for each race in the series. The top six finishers in each race score the most points. Participation also earns points, so the more races you run, the better your chance of winning the series! 
Points Awarded for Each Race in the Series
1st place: 10 points 
2nd place: 9 points 
3rd place: 8 points
4th place: 7 points 
5th place: 6 points 
6th place: 5 points
Participation or Volunteering: 4 points 
First Race: 4 points
Special note for the first race:  Runners are only eligible for participation points in their first Catch Me if You Can! race. Because you are racing against your predicted time, everyone needs one timed race in the series for a fair competition at placement points.    
 
Series Winners
The overall top three point holders at the end of the series win gift certificates to Time Out Sports, where Club Members also get a 15% discount. If runners tie, prizes will be split.
1st place: $100 
2nd place: $75 
3rd place: $50
