Trackie/NB Medical Society SuperSeries

There are more than 100 exciting races which form the NB Racing Circuit. Some of those races are designated as SuperSeries events, where runners will accumulate points toward the Provincial Standings. As results are received, points are compiled and will be posted on the RunNB web site's Stats page. Runners will receive points only for the main race of a SuperSeries event. RunNB will also award double the normal SuperSeries points for each Provincial Championship.

RunNB is excited to be working with the 2022 SuperSeries sponsors, Trackie and NB Medical Society!

SuperSeries

New in 2022

- To be eligible for a SuperSeries title at the annual RunNB Awards Gala, must run a minimum of 5 SuperSeries races in the calendar year.

- RunNB will provide the Race Director of each SuperSeries race with medals for the top three male and female finishers in each of the eight age categories (19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80 and over). This is a total of 48 medals in all. RunNB will coordinate with the Race Director to send them the medals before the race.

- A new classification method will be implemented in 2022. At the end of the racing season, the number of races completed by a runner will be multiplied by the number of points he or she has accumulated to determine the final classification for the prizes awarded at the gala.

Classification, explained

2022 SuperSeries Ranking

SuperSeries Score = (Sum of SuperSeries Score per race completed x Number of races completed)

Points are calculated based on the position of the runners in their respective categories (see the list of categories below). At the end of the racing season, the number of races completed by a runner will be multiplied by the number of points he or she has accumulated to determine the final ranking for the prizes awarded at the gala. In case two or more runners have equal points at the end of the series, the runner with the best time over a distance of 10km will be the winner. All runners will remain in the age category in which they start the season, based on their age on December 31 of the current year.

Age categories

Men & Women: 19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+

Criteria of a SuperSeries race

The following are mandatory criteria to enable a RunNB event to receive the SuperSeries designation. The next call for applications to become a SuperSeries race for the 2023 season will go out in the Fall of 2022 (will be announced on our social media).

  1. If your event has multiple distances, only one distance can qualify for the designation of SuperSeries. Decide which distance will qualify. All standard distances from one mile to a full marathon are eligible.
  2. Ensure the course has been accurately measured. To accurately measure the course, it must be measured with a GPS, calibrated wheel or other calibrated measuring device. Car odometers are not accurate enough to measure a course, though they can be used to lay the course out and act as an approximate measure. Bicycle odometers are acceptable if they are calibrated against an accurate predetermined distance.
  3. RunNB will provide medals for the top three male and female finishers in each of the eight age categories (19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80 and over). This is a total of 48 medals in all. RunNB will coordinate with the Race Director to send them the medals before the race.
