2015 Final Results
Online registration is closed
You can still compete for the Triple Crown by signing up for each race separately and running one of the qualifying races. (St. Paddy's 5K is not a qualifying race)
All of you look forward to the premier racing series of 2015, THE TRIPLE CROWN. The rules are simple and here they are:
Run the Frigid Five on Feb 14nd
Run the Panera Beacon Run on March 7th; either the 5K, 15K or the 25K, it doesn’t matter;
Run the Third Jewel at the St. Paddy’s Day Great Race of the Great Plains 8k on March 21th.
Your finishing position in your age group in each race is totaled, and the lowest number for each age group wins the Triple Crown Cup for that age group! Age groups: 10& under, 11-12, 13-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75 & over.
The overall Triple Crown winners, who receive the DR. TOM CONIGLIONE CHALICE, are the male and female whose total points for their overall finish in each race are the lowest. In the event of ties, the tie-breaker is the finish in the St Paddy's 8K - whichever runner finishes higher in the March 21st race is the age group or overall winner. Overall winners do not also receive their age-group cup; it goes to the next lowest-point finisher. Awards are presented at the conclusion of the presentation of awards for the St Paddy's Day Race.
Enter the Triple Crown for $90 ($50 - 19 & under), which qualifies you for all three events and we aren't talking 3 - 5K events plus a special Triple Crown shirt (plus no, zilch, zero, nada processing fee for using online registration).

AND, if you register for the TRIPLE CROWN, you receive a special limited-edition TRIPLE CROWN RUNNER’S SHIRT! **Triple Crown shirts will be distributed at the St. Paddy’s Day Race**
You do not have to specially register for the TRIPLE CROWN to be a contestant in the TRIPLE CROWN. In fact, anyone who runs in all three events has competed in the three jewels of the TRIPLE CROWN and is included in the TRIPLE CROWN competition, WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT! But, you must register for the TRIPLE CROWN to receive a TRIPLE CROWN shirt.
One last detail: if your age bracket changes during the running of the TRIPLE CROWN, your point totals are calculated from your finish in the age bracket you are in when you run each race. Your TRIPLE CROWN final ranking will be based on the age bracket you are in on March 21st. Whew! Any questions?
NO REFUNDS! SHIRTS SIZES ARE NOT GUARANTEED BUT WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO HAVE THE SIZE YOU ORDERED. (Extra Small and 2XL are dependent on shirt supplier).
