2017 Grand Tree Tally - as of Skyline
For runners with two or more finishes:
Total Points | Best 2,3,...6 Races so far
Alphabetical Results for all runners by Name: A-E | F-K | L-Q | R-Z
Or download as a spreadsheet in open document format: gt2017-alpha.ods

How the Series Works
Run as few or as many as you like. For each race, you get points proportional to your pace as a percentage of the winner's pace, with the winner getting 100 points, and, for example, a hypothetical runner at 75% of the winner's pace getting 75 points. Your best six races determine your final standing for the series. In addition, for the "Stonehead" competition, the points for all the races you run are summed. For Pisgah and Stone Cat, either race distance counts, for Wapack And Back it’s the 21.5 mile race, and for all other dual-distance races, the longer race is the Grand Tree Race.

Photos
Photos of Grand Tree and other area races are often at trail running afficionado Ben Kimball's northeastracephoto website.
Ben also has a book out, Trail Running Western Massachusetts, available at local bookstores, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
