The Spring and Fall Series are both independent of each other. A point system adding competitor's five-race point totals will be used to determine the top finishers within each age group of the series.

These races have SOLD OUT for the past several years, usually weeks or months before race day. So, REGISTER EARLY to save money and guarantee your spot in the race.
