Rough Runners Race Series 2020

Rough Runners Race Series

There are three components to the  Rough Runners Race Series in earning points, Races, Challenges and Acts.


Each race, act and challenge listed below has a certain number of available points.  Points are earned when you complete a run or challenge, place in a run, volunteer for an event, do an act.  To be eligible for the RR Trail Race Series you must have registered and have completed at least two Rough Runners races during the calendar year of the Series.

There is a maximum number of points that can be earned per race.  For a race, you may earn points by completing your race, placing in race and, by volunteering at a race.

There is no fee for taking on a challenge.  For challenges, though, you must complete the challenge in order to earn the points.  You don’t complete the challenge, you don’t get the points.  Also, you must be able to prove that you completed the challenge with gps maps, times and pictures.  If you cannot prove that you completed the challenge you will not be awarded any points.

Acts speak stronger than words.  The Acts are a way of doing your part in helping those without a voice, those without power.  These Acts call to action volunteering your time to clean up your streets and beaches of trash, nurture nature, care for those in need whether human or critter…basically, do your part as a kind human.


You do not have to participate in the Challenges nor the Acts to be in the Race Series but being a part of these will give you the opportunity to gain extra points to pull ahead and perhaps win the Race Series.

You may wonder why the Rough Runners Race Series is so unlike any other race series around.  The answer is that we believe in a life of adventure.  Adventure immerses you in a new world full of passion, danger, excitement, fear.  Adventure is almost never easy but it always fulfills.  It broadens our horizons and exposes us to new perspectives.

With Rough Runners, we try to tap into that adventuresome spirit.  We yearn for it.  We encourage it.  We go after it.  That’s what sets us apart from other running organizations and, from any other race series you may come across.

We’re not like the others but that’s okay…a little different is a good thing!  So, tap into your inner adventurer, explorer and, run with us, -climb with us, -kayak with us…push yourself to the edge and, take the plunge!

This Race Series does not necessarily reward the fastest but, the strongest and, the adventurer.  Strength comes in many forms but in the case of this series it’s about completing what you start, finishing what you’ve quested for.  All of us can do that, if we want it bad enough.  Change isn’t easy but it’s possible.  How badly do you want to exceed your potential?
