The MRA Classic Race Series is a series of MRA sanctioned events run on courses certified accurate by Athletics Canada. Distances vary from 5k to the Full Marathon and are timed by an MRA-approved timer. The emphasis of this series is to encourage friendly competition among runners 17 years of age and older (age calculated as of January 1st).

Points are earned based on placings compared to other MRA members at the races in the series and are used to calculate the top three runners (male and female) in each five year age category. These winners are awarded for their achievement at the annual MRA Awards Banquet in November.

An MRA membership is required to take part in the series. A minimum of 5 races are needed to qualify for an award, with the points in your best 10 races to be used for the final calculations. The point system is as follows:

Place          Points                              Place          Points
1                  300                                  11                 195
2                  285                                  12                 185
3                  275                                  13                 175
4                  265                                  14                 165
5                  255                                  15                 155

Printable Calendar – 2021 MRA Classic Race Series Calendar (revised June 27th)

Please note that the total points earned in the Classic Race Series is based on your 10 Best Races. If you have done more than 10, the lowest point scores from your total (those in RED) are removed. Therefore the highest achievable score is 3000 points (10 races x 300).

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Not everyone will be comfortable running in an In-Person event this year, even if it’s offered. Therefore, in 2021 both In-Person and Virtual events will be included in the Classic Race Series. If an event offers both options (hybrid), both are eligible to earn points in the Series (only one option can be submitted). For Virtual submissions, please enter a target or goal distance into your app (if possible) that corresponds to the distance of the event in the Series in order to ensure that it will give you a time for that distance.
