The fine print:

  1. The Performance Series is open to all current members of Run Nova Scotia. Prospective members will have a period of seven days after a race to join Run Nova Scotia and have their race result count towards the series. For example, to have a May 2nd race result count toward the member’s combined total time, the individual would need to be a confirmed member by May 9th.
  1. Prize money for open athletes is open to all ages. If an individual collects money from the open prize pool, they become ineligible to qualify for age group prizing. Age categories are based on the athlete age at year-end of the race season in question.
  1. If there is a tie in total combined time, the tie will be broken by head to head results in any races on the Performance Series that both racers finished. If this measure is insufficient to break the tie, the racer’s 10K time will be used.
  1. For purposes of the Performance Series, a time conversion factor will be used to convert Natal Day 6 Miler results to a 10K equivalent time.
  1. If a runner has not completed at least one 5K, one 10K (or equivalent), and one eligible half marathon from the Run Nova Scotia Performance Series, they are ineligible for prizing.
  1. Scoring is based on Gun Time results.
