Omega Sports Greensboro Race Series 2015

Omega Sports Greensboro Race Series Want to see the series standings?  Just click the button above. We will update them after each race.  Contact us for any corrections. We try and combine all your times for multiple races (under your name) but we may (and will) miss some. So if you see your name listed twice, simply email us and we will correct it.

The scoring is simple. The age groups for the GRS series are 0-19*, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+  You will earn age group points in these age groups for each race you participate.  The points are

  • 1st – 50 points
  • 2nd – 45 points
  • 3rd – 40 points
  • 4th – 35 points
  • 5th – 30 points
  • 6th – 25 points
  • 7th – 20 points
  • 8th – 15 points
  • 9th – 10 points
  • 10th – 5 points
  • participation – 5 points

Please note the age groups (at each race) are defined by that race and may not follow the GRS age groups.  For example Beerrun may have age groups 0-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+ and give their awards based on their age groups.  However, the GRS ignores the age groups defined by each race and you are earning GRS points in the GRS age groups 0-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+

We have kept the minimum # of races at 5. You can win your age group by participating in 5 GRS events.  We will score your best 7.  Confused?  …don’t be.  Here is the scoop.  To win an award you must run 5. You can run all the races but we will score your best 7.

  • Run 4 races… sorry out of luck.  Can’t win an award
  • Run 5 races… you can win an award. We will score all 5 races
  • Run 6 races… you can win an award. We will score all 6 races
  • Run 7 races… you can win an award. We will score all 7 races
  • Run 8 races… you can win an award.  We will score your top 7 races
  • Run all the races… Congrats you are a monster. We will still only score your top 7 races.

Overall Points

You are competing for age group points/awards but it gets even better.  The top 3 overall male/female finishers in the series will receive cash/Omega gift cards for $300 (1st), $200 (2nd), and $100 (3rd).  The overall points are awarded the same as the age group points 50pts for 1st overall, 45pts for 2nd overall, etc, etc.  Note, your OVERALL POINTS and your AGE GROUP POINTS will not be the same.  You are accumulating OVERALL POINTS based on your overall finish position.  You are accumulating AGE GROUP POINTS based on your age group finish position… make sense?

Age-Up Rule. Your age group is defined for ALL races in the GRS based on your age as of the end of the year.  That means that the age group you will be competing in is your age as of the last day of the year.  Remember this when you look at race results from the GRS races.  Someone may be in the 30-34 age group at a specific race but for GRS they may be in 35-39 age group (thus taking away your valuable points… darn that rule!)

Tie Breaker. In the case of a tie the highest average points per-event will be used to break the tie.  For example, if one runner has 100 points and has participated in 5 races (20pts per race average) and another runner has 100 points but has participated in 7 races (14 pts per race average) the runner  with the highest average will be declared the winner.  If two runners have the same number of points and the same average, a head-to-head tie breaker will be used to declare the winner (whoever won the most head to head races).  If each runner is still tied then the LAST race in the year in which BOTH runners participated will be used to decide the head-to-head tie breaker.  For example if both runners participate in the Greensboro Gobbler the runner winning the head to head competition will be declared the winner.  If two runner are tied and did not complete head to head against each other, then the runner who finished the latest race in the calendar will be the winner.

Series Awards

The best part is getting free stuff and we have plenty.  Top 3 in their age groups will get some great awards. You will get a custom GRS long sleeve running shirt, a pair of Feetures socks and score some sweet gift card from Omega Sports. Omega Sports has been outfitting Triad athletes since 1978 and they are the main sponsors behind the Greensboro Race Series so you know it will be great stuff.

Wilmington {3/11/15}

Yesterday I was in your Wilmington , NC store. I was looking for some baseball pants for my son. I called ahead to see if you had the pants I was looking for and a young lady named Rebecca answered the telephone. She told me that you did have one of the colors I was looking for and that she would hold them for me. When I arrived she sold me the pair she had in stock and told me that she would order the other pair for me. I left the store and then I called back to ask if she could drop ship the pants for me because I live 60 miles away. She told me the pants she ordered had already been placed on a truck so she could not stop the delivery. I said thanks anyway and we hung up. A few minutes later Rebecca called me back and said that she had located the pants I wanted in another Omega store and that she would have those shipped to my house. I was floored and grateful that she had gone to that much trouble for me. I am the Director of Operations for a 75 store chain and I promise you that I will use this experience at our next managers meeting as an amazing example of how customer service is supposed to be delivered. I also noticed that there was a trainee working with Rebecca. She is lucky to have someone with that kind of gusto to learn from. Thanks for the great experience!
