Medals and Rewards

Running a trail in Rim Country is its own reward, but we do have medals and other prizes on the table.

Medals will be given to the 1st place runner in male & female by ten year age groups. The top three overall age graded winners will receive plaques. See below for a detailed explanation of the age grading formulas used for the race.

Timing will be based on gun time for each wave utilizing the race|result 11 software.

Long sleeve technical tee shirts will be guaranteed to all runners who register online by April 20, 2018.

All registered runners get a burrito breakfast at the Pine Trailhead provided by the Mountain Village Foundation.

And you get swag! The swag bag will be a reusable shopping bag with a provided bib tag attached, and more stuff inside.

Age Grading for Pine Trail Run

Age-Grading is a way of adjusting your running performance by taking into account the age and gender of runners. We will use the 20km age factors, which range from .1169 to 1.0000, of the 2015 Road Age Factors tables approved by the World Masters Athletics & USA Track & Field organizations.

Your race time will be multiplied by the age factor specific to your age and gender resulting in an age adjusted time. For female runners, the age adjusted time is then multiplied by the gender factor, which is .8959 for the 20km run, to arrive at the age & gender graded time. The top three runners based on their age & gender graded times will receive plaques.

Examples

  • A 45 year old female runs the course in 1:50:00, which is 6600 seconds. Per the table the age factor is .9293 so her adjusted time is 6600 x .9293 or 6133.38 seconds. Applying the gender factor, the final adjusted time is 6133.38 x .8959 = 5494.90 seconds, or 1:31:34.9.
  • A 45 year old male runs the course in 1:40:00, which is 6000 seconds. Per the table the age factor is .9344. His adjusted time is 6000 x .9344 = 5606.4 seconds, or 1:33:26.4.

Notes

  1. The 20km (12.4 mile) road factors are used to approximate the effort of the 8.8 mile trail race. Note that the factors for the distances of 10 miles through the half marathon varies by less than .1%.
  2. The gender factor is calculated by dividing the fastest male 20km in the table (3315 seconds) by the fastest female time in the table (3700 seconds): 3315/3700 = .8959.
