The Oak Tree Race is once again a featured part of the Rochester Runner of the Year series of races. This is the fourth year the Oak Tree Half will be featured in the series. Organized by the Greater Rochester Track Club, the Rochester Runner of the Year series tests runners abilities at varying distances in every season of the year to determine which male and female are THE fastest Rochester runners.
The series offers age-based rankings as well, giving all runners a chance to see how they stack up in the region. The series offers an opportunity to test your performance in various conditions, on various courses, and on different days. With a dozen races, one or two bad runs won't knock you out of the scoring!
Runners must complete at least four races to be eligible for overall and age-group series awards, but the top six races will be used for scoring purpose. There is no extra registration or costs for the series, however there is additional overall and age group awards for those completing the series.
The Oak Tree Half Marathon provides an opportunity for endurance oriented athletes to pick up points in a series that is otherwise oriented toward short and medium distance runs. The series is supported by the Greater Rochester Track Club and series rules, standings, and contact information can be found on their site.
- No extra registration or costs to participate...sign up for and complete at least 4 series races (better yet, run them all!)
- Your best 6 scores count toward point total
- Awards to the top 10 men and women and 1st thru 5th men and women in age groups
