The Manitoba Runners’ Association (MRA) is proud to sponsor a Youth Running Series for runners 16 years of age and under. The emphasis of this Series is to introduce and encourage participation in the sport of road-running for health, fun and friendship.
This series consists of races with distances of 5k and under that take place between April and October. Age is calculated as of January 1st. An MRA Junior or Student Membership is required to participate in the series at a cost of $15.00 for the year. Family members are also eligible. A school can become a member for as little as $40.00 (every child at the school is then considered a member of the MRA once they fill out a membership form).
Qualifying for the MRA Youth Series awards is easy! Be 16 years of age and under, become an MRA Member and run a minimum of only 3 races! Please don’t forget to visit the MRA table at all participating races to check in before you run.
Each Youth Series Member is placed in a participation level based on the number of races run and is awarded a prize for each level at the Year-End Awards Banquet based on the following qualifications;
Bronze: run 3 races minimum
Silver: run 6 races minimum
Gold: run 9 races minimum
Youth Series members aged 11-16 can also earn competitive points according to the table below. Any distance on the Youth Race Series Calendar is included. Points earned will be accumulated to determine the top three winners (male & female) in each of 3 age categories, who will be recognized for their achievement at the Year-End Awards Banquet. Although no prizes are awarded, members 10 years of age and under can keep track of their points for personal achievement.
