Club Points Races

 

To foster healthy competition among New York area clubs, encourage excellence in

running, and help boost NYRR race participation and spectator interest, NYRR and

Club Council designate 11 NYRR scored races per year as Club Points races.

 

These 11 races vary in distance. Clubs accumulate points based on their finishing places

in these races. At the end of the year, each club's point totals in the 9 best races of the

11-race series (the two lowest scores for each club are automatically dropped)

are added to determine the club's overall ranking for the year.

 

The club with the most points is the winner, the club with the second-highest number

of points places second, and so on.

At NYRR's annual Club Night, the previous year's top clubs are honored and receive

the "Freddie", a specially engraved award.

 

Clubs can score points at club points races in eight different divisions:

men's and women's open (all ages), men's and women's masters (age 40+),

men's and women's veterans (age 50+), and - as of 2005 - men's and women's

super veterans (age 60+, and as of 2016 age 70+).

 

Mercury Masters holds first place ranking in the women’s veterans

division for 2002, 2003, third place for 2004, and second place in the

women’s super-veterans (age 60+) division for 2005, 2006, 2007,

first place for 2008, third place for 2009, first place for 2010,

second place for 2011 and 2012, third place for 2013, third place

for 2014,  fourth place for 2015, third place for 2016, and

first place (age 70+) for 2016.
