INFO | Points POINTS You may earn points through two different tracks: Traditional and Spirit.
Traditional : Points resulting as a direct result of your performance on race day. This is most common with standard road race series. Spirit : Points given to those who enjoy the spirit and culture of running as well as Chick-fil-A. Examples include: Dressing like a cow to run, decorating your car on Race Day, posting pictures of yourself inside Chick-fil-A, and donating cans to the local food bank on race day. Base : Points applying to both the Traditional and Spirit Tracks. Examples include: Registering for a race, running in a race, and completing the follow up survey. Points do not cumulate between the two tracks; rather, you will have a separate point standing for both the traditional track and spirit track. You may view the many different ways to earn points on the next page.
TIE BREAKER In the event of a tie, a winner will be determined based on the most recent race run. The runner who competed in the most recent Series race will be given the tie breaker. The second tie breaker will be determined by the runner with lowest average time.
