Virtual Super Iron Runner Series Update (May 2020)
Well, as you might have heard, a few things have changed plans for life in general in 2020. Lo, and behold, this COVID-19 health crisis has forced almost all road races since March to either cancel completely or provide a virtual option. After the quarantines are over, it is unclear which road races will be offered, whether by postponement or on schedule. This uncertainty has thrown a monkey wrench into our 2020 Super Iron Runner Series plan.
So, our Super Iron Runner Series Committee has come up with a great "PLAN B" to keep our club members connected to each other and provide the motivation to challenge ourselves with special athletic tests over the coming months, as well as earn SIRS points. The events will now be virtual, allowing folks to run the race distance in their own neighborhood, or some other location safe to run. We only ask that you provide proof of the effort by checking in with your virtual race results in the form below.
So here are the revised rules for the 2020 Super Iron Runner Series:
REQUIREMENTS for Eligibility
All submissions must take place the weekend specified, submissions out of the window can not be honored
YOU MUST BE A current DUES PAYING MEMBER.
ALL RACES MUST BE COMPLETED ON THE SPECIFIED WEEKEND
REQUIREMENTS for Virtual SIRS Points:

picture or screen shot of your run data (distance and overall time),

- Prior points earned will be honored: First Run or Hangover Classic, Bradford Valentine's Race, and the St. Patty's Day Virtual race (you must have submitted on the day of the race, as specified prior)
- You may claim your point if you were the HOST of an MVS organized hosted run between January 1, 2020 and March 8, 2020
