The Mission Health My Generation Running Series will return in 2019 with a new line up of races.
Thank you to everyone who supported the inaugural year of the Mission Health My Generation Running Series. The results from the Asheville Brewing Super Hero 5K & Super Villain 10K along with the final standings are posted below.
This unique race series featured four Asheville running events focused not on traditional age groups but generations. This revolutionary concept brought a new level of excitement to road racing in Asheville.
Runners will be classified and scored in one of five generations:
Centennials or Gen Z (born in the year 1996 or later)
Millenials (born in the years of 1985-1995)
Generation X’ers (born in the years 1965-1984) – Sponsored by Black Orthodontics
Baby Boomers (born in the years 1946-1964)
Traditionalists (born in the years 1945 or earlier)
The Mission Health My Generation Running Series features five of Asheville’s established running events.
You must race a minimum of three of these events to be eligible for Series prizes.
How Do I Enter?
You don’t have to. Everybody who runs in the Asheville Hot Choclate 5K/10K, Asheville Catholic School Shamrock 5K/10K, or Biltmore/Kiwanis 15K/5K is automatically entered into the Series. After that, you must race at least two more to be eligible for Series prizes.
The more you race, the more points you earn.
After each race, the results will be sorted according to generations and gender. Those who finish first in their generation for that event will receive the most points. For example, if Bill finishes first at the Shamrock 5K in a fifteen person division, they will receive 200 points. If John finishes 15th in that same division, he will receive 185 points.
Those racing in the 10K at Hot Chocolate, Shamrock or the 15K at Biltmore/Kiwanis will receive 20 bonus points.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top five male and female in each generation.*
1st Place – $200
2nd Place – $150
3rd Place – $125
4th Place – $100
5th Place – $75
*Interscholastic runners and those competing at the NCAA level will be awarded gift cards in lieu of cash in order to not damage the eligibility of the runner.
Generational results from each of the Series events will be posted here after each event along with current standings for each generation. Each Series participant will receive an email following each event with updated results.
