SUMMER SERIES 2023/24
ATR Summer Series kicks off on Sunday 26th of November 2023 at Bridgewater in the Adelaide Hills! This course has been used for our past 2 State Teams Championships and has proven to be so popular, we have added it to the Summer Series.
To qualify for the series awards, you must compete (start) in a minimum of four out of five races. Runners score points for finishing in the top-5 of their age group and the top-5 overall of that particular distance.
** If you start the race and are disqualified or withdraw from injury, this is still counted as a start and will count toward your minimum 4 races, but you obviously will not earn points for this race. If you are deemed to abuse this rule in an unsportsmanlike manner, you can be disqualified from the Series Awards at the Race Directors discretion **
Points Distribution Race 1-4
1st - 25
2nd - 16
3rd - 12

Only the best 4 scores are counted out of the possible 5 races. All age group winners and overall distance winners will be presented with winners' medals at our end of season presentations, usually held in May. Overall distance winners will not be eligible to win their age group category as well. The overall win takes priority over an age group win.
* Updated Maps for 2023-24 will be available soon *
The minimum age for our Long Course entry is 15 years. The minimum age for the Medium Course is 12 years and for the Short Course it is 10 years (unless permission granted prior to event). Please email us for special consideration outlining your child's experience.
