Team Points Races

Columbus Run Crew actively competes in 15 designated points races each year. Registered member accumulate points based on how they place in each of these races. At the end of the season, the points from each members’s top 7 races are totaled to determine the overall rankings of all the members.

In Columbus Run Crew, team point races are major team-bonding & social events. Race week amenities include a team bib pick-up, organized meet-ups for everyone to get to the race on time, cheer squads to support those racing, and post-race celebrations.

While team points races are competitive in allowing points to be scored, they are no different from any other race throughout the year. Everyone is encouraged to participate in team points events – whether racing, cheering or socializing. Your finish time can never hurt the team, so do not be discouraged from racing these events because you feel you are too slow. We pride ourselves in having great turnouts to team points races throughout the year, and they are a great way to race with the support and cheers of your wonderful team.
