Starting Line at Winter 5K Series

2017 Chautauqua Striders Winter 5K Series

The Chautauqua Striders Winter 5K Series is an “age-graded” race series. Age-grading levels the playing field for all runners, just as a “handicap” is intended to do in bowling and golf. It provides the runner with the percentage value of an “ideal” or best time for his or her age and gender.

The 5K course is similar to the one used for the Amy’s Run.  However, the start and finish will take place on the corner of East Terrace and East Summit.   The start time for each race is 10:00 am Runners must check in prior to race between 9:00 and 9:45 am at the Lakewood Rod & Gun Club, 433 E. Terrace Ave., Lakewood, NY.  Please park in lot across street from main building.

Runners placing in the top 50 of each race based on age-grade percentage will be awarded points as follows: 50 points for first place, 49 for second, 48 for third, etc.  A runner will receive zero points for any race that he or she does not run.

Cost is only $55.00 per runner.  Any participant, who is an immediate family member of another participant who has paid the $55.00 entry fee, can participate in the series for only $15.00. To be eligible for awards, participants must register for the entire series.

Those registering after December 20 will pay $60 for the series and $20 for each immediate family member participating in the series.

Registration for individual races within the series is $20 per race.  Runners will receive their finishing time and will be eligible for raffle prizes. Late registrants can register for the series from 9:00-9:45 am on January 7.

Questions regarding the series should be directed to David Reinhardt at (716) 489-3489 or david@chautauqua-striders.org.
