Series Points and Guidelines
2017 Point Series Rules and Guidelines
The point series is open to any male or female racing in the Junior A, or Junior B categories. The point system is a sliding scale between first and twentieth places. First place finishers will be awarded 60 points down to 5 points for twentieth place. After each race your points will be tallied up and a new series ranking will be posted. The last race of the series will be awarded double points. Your top three results will be counted towards the series winner. This means if you compete in all four events, your top three results will be counted and your worst result will be dropped. If an athlete only competes in three races and accumulates points in each race, all three of those events will be counted. If an athlete only competes in one race, they will still be counted towards the point's series.
Awards and prizes will be presented following the last race of the series. If an athlete decides to upgrade from Junior B to Junior A then one half of their accumulated points will be transferred over to the higher category. If an athlete decides to downgrade from Junior A to Junior B, all of their points will be carried over. We will only keep track of one category change. There will be no points for the littles categories.

Rain Cancellation Policy
We will do our best to determine if an event needs to be canceled 24 hours in advance. At worst, cancellations will be announced by noon the day of the event on our Healthy Kids Happy Kids facebook page. For those not on facebook, our cancellation phone number is 207-776-2967. If it is forecasted to rain throughout the day of an event then we will cancel. However, if there is just a chance of a shower or sprinkle, then we race! Safety is our top priority and we recognize that many participants make long trips to our events so we want to make sure we give you ample time to plan accordingly.
If an event is canceled, we have a rain date which is listed above and posted on our calendar. We will only do one rain date.
