It is the responsibility of athletes that finish in the awards to note any necessary corrections on race day. If an error is discovered post-race we'll be happy to correct your results and update the website accordingly. However, if you do not inform us of this issue before your award is given out we will no longer have an award to give to you and we can't remake awards.

Timing and Scoring

The 3 mile race will be scored based on age adjusted scoring. Age adjusted scoring uses a table based on single age world records. This table gives you an age adjusted time. This age adjusted time is compared to the world record to get a percentage of world record time and athletes are ranked by this percentage.

The races will be electronically timed and scored. You must wear your race bib and D-tag properly to be scored. Your race bib must be worn on the front of your torso and be visible at the finish line. Your D-tag must be worn properly on one of your shoes. See Chronotrack D-Tag Instructions for details.

Preliminary results will be posted at the race site at the conclusion of the race. Full results will be published on the NOTC web site after the race.


No shirts for this race! All pre-registered participants will receive an umbrella in lieu of a T-shirt. Umbrellas to late and race-day registrants while supplies last.


Post-race refreshments include water from Kentwood Springs, beer from Crescent Crown Distributing, jambalaya from Cook Me Somethin' Mister, and Elmer's CheeWees.


Registration is open to NOTC members and nonmembers alike. All participants must be registered and wear an official race bib while on the course.
