The Pay Day 5k Series
It’s time to change your training schedule because for the next few months every other Thursday is about to become your speed work day. Starting in June we’re going to host a seven race 5k series every other Thursday evening. And we all know running makes you thirsty, so be sure to join us for a little thirsty Thursday action immediately following the awards presentation.
In addition to cash prizes we’ll be giving out some pretty cool race gifts throughout the season. The first race you sign up for you’ll receive a random Adventure Geek Productions gift. Race with us twice and you’ll get a race series specific pint glass to enjoy those all those post-race happy hours with. Compete in five races and you’ll get hooked up with a soft style race series t-shirt. Step your game up to racing all seven races with us and receive a pair of custom sublimated arm warmers to use as the cooler weather creeps up on the end of our season.

There will be a Championship Race after race #7 where runners will compete for a slice of the $1000 prize purse and if they’ve played their cards right (or just whooped some tail!) they’ll also be taking home a piece of the $1000 Series Points Championship prize purse. The Championship Race will be free and by invitation only.
Invitations will be giving to the top 5 male and female finisher of each race. Invitations will roll down to the next person(s) if any of the top finishers have already received an invitation.

Series Points Championship Scoring:
In order to be eligible for the points series championship participants must race in a minimum of three races. We will score your best four races by point value.
At each race, points will be awarded based on placement using the following formula.
200*(1 - natural log(place)/natural log(X + 1)) where X equals field depth.
Additionally, we will reward athlete commitment beyond the four points-scoring races with 25 loyalty points per additional race.
