Youth Athletic Series

The Youth Athletic Series has been postponed for 2013 to allow Run Ottawa to evaluate all initiatives related to support of athletes on a local and national basis.

The Youth athletic series is a free, school-based program designed to help Ottawa youth become more active. This series is designed for male and female runners under 19 years old. Registration in the Youth Athletic Series is not compulsory, but registered participants can win prizes for participation and performance. The standings are calculated from the results of pre-selected events and will be updated after each race.

Points are awarded for every race, with separated categories for male and female, when you finish in the top five. To determine the overall winner the total points from all the races will be added up and a winner will be announced.  In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by comparing finish times, followed by a vote by the Ottawa Race Weekend organizers. Points are allotted as follows:

* 1st Place – 10 points
* 2nd Place – 7 points
* 3rd Place – 5 points
* 4th Place – 3 points
* 5th Place – 1 point
