Overall Standings - 2020 FINAL

Clamshell Series Description

The Clamshell Series was introduced new in 2016.  All who participate in 5 or more Clamshell races receive an award at the end of year party.  Similar to some other local race clubs, we are putting together and tracking WTAC members' participation at preselected races.  This is intended to encourage WTAC members to put on their WTAC singlet or shirt or colors, and come run and have fun at local RI races with their fellow teammates.

Clamshell Rules

  • Open to current WTAC members only.  Any club dues must be paid up-to-date for the current year.  (If you're not a member or not current on dues, just click on the "Membership" tab above.)

  • One race in series every month for a total of 12.  Members must run a minimum of 5 races to be eligible for any end-of-year standings and awards

  • All distances in each race count for participation, but only the longest distance counts for standings.  (Example:  Clamdigger has both a 5K and 5-Mile option.  WTAC members running the 5K will receive credit for one of the 5 races needed for end-of-year awards, but only the 5-Mile runners will be counted in standings.) 

  • We will recognize any awards and achievements at our December party.  (Thus, the race year runs from December to November.)

  • Scoring points will apply to both overall and age groups (10-year increments, male and female):

Place Points
1st 3
2nd 2
All others 1

  • Standings overall and 10-year age groups will be tracked, posted here, and recognized at December party.

  • Have fun!
