Rules & Awards

There are five age divisions for the trail race series plus the Clydesdale (200 lbs) and Athena (150 lbs) groups. The age divisions are 29 and under, 30 – 39, 40 – 49, 50 – 59, and 60 and older. We give Black Hills Trail Running Series Awards to the top three men and women in all five age divisions, plus the Clydesdale and Athena groups.

Individual Races: There are no division awards for each individual race because we’re out there having fun… but stick around to have your name drawn at random for something great from one of our friendly sponsors. See some of the cool stuff donated last year on our Sponsor page.


1st place in each division for each race receives 10 points. Points go down by 1 sequentially.  2nd place receives 9 points all the way to 10th place receiving 1point.

At the end of the series all results are tallied, and prizes are awarded to the top three men and women in all 5 age divisions plus the Clydesdale and Athena groups. Participants completing the entire Series (regardless of times) are also recognized.

All awards will be given out at the beginning of the Runner’s Club Christmas Party in December. If winners are not in attendance the award will be held for them at The Runner’s Shop.
