Welcome to the new MRA Celebration Series!

After the success of Run 150 in 2020, it was decided to create a new series based on participation rather than competition. This series is open to MRA members and non-members alike, and because 2021 is the MRA’s 50th Anniversary, we decided that this year the series would be free to everyone! 

All ages of runners, walkers, and wheelers (wheelchair) are invited to take part in an 10 month long challenge to start exercising regularly, from January 3rd to October 30th. Each run, walk or wheel is worth points and everyone that earns 50 points will be awarded a unique, custom-designed medal! Families can get out together and log their exercise on one app. All you need to get started is to register here: https://raceroster.com/38937

Types of Runs that can Earn You Points:

  1. MRA Sanctioned Events: A minimum of three of these events are required to earn a medal. A list of eligible events can be found below or you can download the 2021 MRA Celebration Series Calendar. Click on the name of the event for more information and a link to registration. You can do as many of these as you wish; we will record them from the event’s posted results.
  2. Virtual Training Runs: These are weekly “events” that you can record for points, including sessions that you do on your own or events not on the Calendar. Only one can be recorded per week, on the app of your choice, and need to be uploaded to the Race Roster event site: https://raceroster.com/38937 once you are registered for the series. Runs can be recorded retroactively to January 3rd.

How to Earn Your 50 Points:

Weekly virtual training runs & virtual MRA events:    2 points each

In-Person MRA events inside the Perimeter Hwy:      3 points each

In-Person MRA events outside the Perimeter Hwy:   4 points each 

Minimum distance for Adults 17+ is 5k.
Minimum distance for Youth 16 and under is 1k.
Age calculated as of January 1, 2021.
