 Fleet Feet Sports Madison Racing Team
The goal of the Racing Team is to help each team member maximize their ability with year-round training opportunities focusing on local and regional races. Our athletes range in ability level but are all committed to training, racing, and Fleet Feet Sports. Team Members support each other, promote our store, demonstrate good sportsmanship, and give back to the running community. In addition to practicing and competing as a team at events, we will also compete internally using an age/sex grading formula (WAVA) for some great end of the year prizes from our vendor partners.

All team members receive weekly emails detailing workouts, meeting locations, social events, discount codes, coupons, and more!

Team Eligibility:
Anyone can join the Fleet Feet Racing Team.  You do not have to be fast, or run a particular distance, or be a certain age.  We just ask that you be dedicated to the sport, our store, and the team. Thus, our only requirement is that you wear your Fleet Feet Racing gear when training and racing.  Most of all, we hope our team members continue to enjoy running and HAVE FUN!

Team Workouts:

Long Weekend Runs: 1-2x a month – all year

Team and Individual Competition:
When possible we will compete as a team or as several teams in local and regional events.  For the internal individual team competition, we will use WAVA Tables (World Association of Veteran Athletes) which allows us to fairly compute scoring by taking in consideration age and gender.  After running an event you will submit your time and we will calculate your points.  Scores will be saved and added cumulatively for our athletes throughout the year. At the end of the year the cumulative total of your top scores in each distance category will be used to determine the award winners.  You can run as many events as you like and in any category, but only your top times will be used for annual awards. We have added a Triathlon specific category to the competition for 2013!

Time scoring will only be calculated if you are wearing Fleet Feet at the race for which you would like scored. If it is a race that is not one of the 2013 target events, then you must have proof (picture) of yourself wearing Fleet Feet to send along with your time. We will have a Fleet Feet representative at all target events for 2013.

 *Triathlon Scoring:  The scoring system for the Triathlon Category is slightly different than the WAVA Scoring system for running event.  It is based on how your finishing time compares to the winner of your age group.  Here are the steps to calculating your points:

  1. The times for the overall winners of the event are pushed down into their appropriate age groups (if necessary).  
  2. The winning time (converted into seconds) in an age group is divided by the team members time (converted into seconds).  
  3. The result is multiplied by 100 and rounded down.  

EXAMPLE:

  1. The winner of M30-34 raced 1:01:01 (3661 sec) 
  2. Team member raced 1:31:01 (5401 sec).  The team member would earn 67 points -  (3661/5401) * 100 = 67.
The top 2 scores from the Tri Series will be added up for each individuals total (regardless of the distance). 

Awards:
Based on cumulative points in the Internal Team Competition, awards will be granted to the top men and women in each of the following distance categories – each winner will receive prize products from the vendor partner shown:

Saucony 5K-Top 3 times
Brooks 8K & 5 Mile- Top 2
Adidas 10K- Top 3
New Balance 15K/10 Mile- Top 2
Nike Half Marathon- Top 2
Mizuno Full Marathon- Top scores
Newton Triathlon – Top 2
Fleet Feet Sports- Overall score winner
