Clamshell Series Description

The Clamshell Series was introduced new in 2016.  All who participated in 5 or more Clamshell races received an embroidered WTAC hat at the end of year party.  Similar to some other local race clubs, we are putting together and tracking WTAC members' times 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 11.  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.)  The only exception is for Ocean's Run; both the half and full marathons will count towards standings.

  • We will recognize any awards and achievements at our December party.  (Thus there's no race in the series for December.)

  • 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!

Bonus Points:

  • 1-point bonus for running the Bottone Track Mile (participation and standings).

  • 1-point bonus for running 5 or more of the Tom McCoy Fun Run Series 5K races (participation and standings).

  • 1-point bonus for wearing WTAC uniform at any of four paid WTAC races (Clamdigger, Wahaneeta, Pumpkins, Rhody).

  • 5-point bonus for running the full WTAC Fall Trail Race Series (standings only).
