ROCKSYLVANIA

Beginning in 2018, the central PA trail running scene took on a brand new look, breaking away from the old Trophy Series to form the new Rocksylvania Trail Series. Now we’re back at it for 2020, amping this new series up to include 20 different courses, all teaming up together to showcase some of the best trail races in the state.

The 2020 series includes 20 PA trail races broken down into four divisions based on race distance. These are the divisions:

Division 1 – 10K

Division 2 – Half Marathon

Division 3 – 25k

Division 4 – Ultra

The four divisions will give runners the option of concentrating on distances that are more to their liking. You can run as many or as few races as you’d like, but the more races you run in one particular division, the better your chances are in winning a prize.

Scoring: The top finisher in each age group will earn 25 points per race. Second will earn 24. Third will earn 23 and so on. The individual in each age group that has the HIGHEST point total at the end of that series will be crowned the champion. The maximum number of points someone can earn is 125.

Falcon Timing will be scoring each runner based on their age group finish at each race and prizes will be awarded to the top 3 overall males and females of each age group at the end of the year. Runners must complete at least 3 races to win. Awards will be given out at the end of the year at an awards banquet at New Trail Brewing Company in Williamsport (TBA).

In case of a tie, the runner who has more head-to-head wins will earn the prize. In case both runners only have 4 finishes in that division and are still tied, it will go to the runner with the most Rocksylvania races completed.

To earn a Rocksylvania tech tee, a runner must either run all 5 races in one division or finish at least 8 total races in the Series. Good luck everyone!!!!
