Runners Shop Continues Twilight Series Sponsorship

Runners Shop Continues Twilight Series Sponsorship

Orienteering ACT is pleased to announce that The Runners Shop has agreed to continue sponsor of the Twilight Series. The Runners Shop is a local, family-owned business that has sponsored the Twilight Series since its inception in 1996. The sponsorship includes:

  • Placegetters in Twilight Series. A $120 voucher to winner, a $80 voucher to second and a $50 voucher to third; see below for the Twilight Series Competition Rules
  • Encouragement Awards to the value of $200, probably five vouchers at $40 encouragement for participation. Awards decided by the Executive Officer.

The vouchers for the series will be presented at the end of the series in March 2022

Twilight Series Competition Rules
The Runners Shop Twilight Series is conducted on all Moderate courses and uses kilometre rates normalised for age/gender handicapped factors, rather than actual race times to determine placings for each event. Points are awarded as 125 for first, 124 for second, and so on down to 25 for 101st (and lower). The overall series places are based on each competitor’s best floor (N/2) +1 scores from N events, where N equals the number of events staged and floor(x) is the largest integer less than or equal to x.  With only 13 events in the 2021-22 Twilight Series, the top seven scores will be used to determine the top three competitors.

Support Our Sponsor
The Runners Shop in Phillip has reopened for in-store shopping with a full range of running shoes and other clothing suitable for running, so support our sponsor by acquiring your needs from the Runner Shop. In addition to you receiving a discount for being a member of Orienteering ACT, a small commission will also be passed on to OACT.

Runners Shop Twilight Series Season Pass
To participate in the Runners Shop Series, you need to pre-enter and the best way is to purchase a Season Pass. You must be a member of an orienteering club and you must have your own SportIdent stick, which can be purchased as an additional service when you register for a Pass via Eventor.

At each Event
At each event, please observe the prevailing COVID-19 safe rules, please ensure you are familiar with the COVID-19 safe rules and obey any directions given to you by officials at events.
