FTLY = Faster Than Last Year at this race

YOU CAN EARN POINTS ONLY ONCE PER MONTH (IF 2 RACES, THE HIGHER POINTS).

IF A MARATHON’S 22 POINTS OR A HALF’S 18 POINTS HIGHER THAN YOUR HIGHEST IN ANY GP RACE THAT MONTH, THEN THOSE POINTS WILL BE ADDED FOR MONTH.

OR, FOR TWO MONTHS IN THE SERIES, YOU CAN SKIP A GP RACE AND SUBSTITUTE A MARATHON’S 22 POINTS. OR FOR 3 DIFFERENT MONTHS, A HALF’S 18 POINTS.

Age-graded time is done for the actual year of a racer’s age, rather than just by the 10-year age division the runner is in.

WAVA% is World Association of Veteran Athletes, and a value of 60-69.99 percent = “competitive locally,” 70-79.99 “ompetitive regionally”

 If you ran this race but don’t see your name here, please contact Eric or Tom by Dec 21. (Because this does happen — members not noticed in the results — the above point totals have to be considered tentative until well after the newsletter is out)
