You need to race in as many events as possible within the series to score maximum points. There are six races in the XTERRA Arizona Trail Run BLACK and RED Series. There are five races in the XTERRA Arizona Trail Run BLUE and GREEN Series.
All final scores are calculated based on your top 5 finishes. You must participate in at least two events in the series to be eligible to win. However, your chances of winning improve the more you run. Moreover, if you do not attend, you will be allocated “0” points for that race.
Additionally, you can mix and match the distances you run, but FINAL Point Series Standings will be determined separately for the BLACK, RED, BLUE, and GREEN series. For instance, if you win a race in the BLACK series at San Tan and in the RED series at Estrella, you earn 100 points in the BLACK and the RED series.
Series points standings will be posted after the second event, and updated series standings will be updated with three days of each subsequent event.
