A Special Message For This COVID Modified Year!

In recognition of the ongoing effects of Covid-19 on the originally published 2021 Omega Sports Race Series calendar of events, we have chosen to amend the rules in 2021. Instead of the traditional requirement of 5 events to receive an invitation to the post-season celebration and to qualify for awards the requirement has been adjusted to participation in 4 events.

Additionally, we have added 1 event, the Red Oak 5K, to the calendar of qualifying events.

Please note, participation in chip-timed LIVE and virtual events count toward the required event finishes. You will only receive 10 participation points for virtual events.

Race and point totals are completely up to date.
