The Mission Health My Generation Running Series has returned in 2019 with a new line up of races.
Results from our third event of the Series – the Biltmore-Kiwanis 15K/5K – and the current standings are posted below. The race for prize money is tightening up in all generations and we are expecting some exciting racing at our next two races: Highland Night Flight on July 27 and the Super Hero 5K/Super Villain 10K on September 21.
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, the 15K at Biltmore/Kiwanis and the Super Villain 10K 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.
