Race Circuit

To recognize the achievements of our member athletes, and encourage participation in local races — each year, Fox River Trail Runners (FRTR) establishes the club Race Circuit. Athletes earn age-graded scores at each circuit race, and every athlete who completes at least 7 races is eligible for awards at the end of the racing season. 

2024 Circuit Schedule

Circuit races are selected to represent established, well managed races popular with club members at a variety of distances. We look for races close to the Fox Valley / Western Suburbs area, and try to avoid multiple races in any given weekend.

The circuit includes up to 2 Ad Hoc Marathons, as selected by you. Run any marathon you like —Boston, Chicago, Indianapolis, etc.—to be counted towards your circuit total score. New for 2024: 1 Ad Hoc Half Marathon also counts towards your circuit total score.

We do our best to identify your finish times in these circuit races, but if we miss any of your race finishes in the 2024 Circuit Results spreadsheet, please self-report your results using this online form.

Circuit Results

Throughout the 2024 racing season, we track member finish times and raceday ages in this Circuit Results spreadsheet. Each finish time earns an age-graded score*, which normalizes performances across distance, gender and age group.

*Age-graded scores calculated by 2020 Road Event Age-grading factors, established by the USATF Masters Long Distance Running Council. 

Awards Criteria

All FRTR athletes who complete 7 or more circuit races in 2024 are eligible for end-of-the-year awards. Your ranking is determined by the average age-graded score of your best 7 races. Awards go to the top 5 circuit finishers, and to the athlete or athletes who finish the most circuit races within the calendar year.
