XTERRA French River Trail Run (aka Hodges Hoedown)

July 14, 2019

The XTERRA French River Trail Run (aka Hodges Hoedown) showcases the complex trail system of this US Army Corp of Engineers property. The race includes sections that can only (sanely) be power hiked, a few descents that require holding onto saplings, and even a knee deep river crossing. Gun start, manual timing. 23 runners in the 5k, 78 runners in the 10k, 87 runners in the half marathon.

…Grand Prix points for a relay is 20 points minimum
…In the 12-month Grand Prix Series starting in June, GP points for only ONE RACE PER MONTH are awarded, and they would be for whichever race you ran produced the higher (or highest, if 3 races) points for that month. See the Grand Prix Rules for how to substitute a marathon, half-marathon or ultra race (>32 miles) for a race in any particular month. Just by dint of being a GFRC member, when you run a GP-selected race, GP points are calculated for you and added to your total for the Series.
…Age-graded time is done for the exact year (with 2 decimal positions) of racer’s age, rather than by the 10-year age division the runner is in, as calculated on WMA website. Ages on this are calculated to one one-hundredth because there is often such a closeness in age-graded times that a finer age-graded computation than in 2-digit ages is more accurate. Plus, the farther into your year of age you are, more time is taken off and therefore the faster your age-graded time is! YOUNGER RUNNERS might not like this at first, but it is used so that all club members have a fun way to compete against each other. OLDER RUNNERS are always very envious of younger runners’ ability to run fast times. Age-graded times actually do approximate the times most older runners ran in their 20’s and early 30’s, so it is a fair system to use.
