Whether or not you follow football, this FUNs for YOU! Choose your College Team and Race/Run for the week and see if you'll make it to the Playoffs! Join in on one, two, three or ALL of the weeks in our SEC Run to the Playoffs!
We've set up a 6 mile course through each of the SEC Schools for you to virtually run and enjoy (if you live close, you can actually stop by the school and run the course for real). You can race it (Race Team) or run it (Cheer/Fan Squad), either way you'll get a chance to see all the schools (via video). We've visited all the schools and put together a video-tour along the course for you to enjoy as you complete your race/run. You'll get a chance to see some cool highlights, learn about the campus, and of course, the teams that play there!
Each week you participate, you'll receive a personalized *Finisher Card". Weeks will run from Sunday through Saturday; results finalized Saturday night. Entries submitted afterwards will not have a time on their Finisher Card or have points added towards the team totals (you'll still get points towards your overall season).
Each week, we'll tally up points for each College team based on all the Players/Racers overall finishing place & any Cheer/Fan Squad.
At the end of the 14 weeks we’ll crown a champion school & player! Sign up for all 14 weeks & you'll also receive an awesome shirt! Shirts will start to be made and mailed the week before Aug. 30.
Choose to be a Player (racer) or part of the Cheer/Fan Squad! Players are in it to WIN it! Cheer/Fan Squad are along for the enjoyment and will cheer their team on for the week!
Choose how you'll want to participate...
If you're in it to win it, this is the category you want.You'll get a placing each week.
You'll get points based on how you finish (for example...1st out of 225 will earn you 225 points, 225th out of 225 will earn you 1 point)
We'll total up all your points over the 14 weeks and the top point earner will be crowned Champion (male & female categories)
Your points will also go towards your college team
If you're looking for a way to stay motivated and want to enjoy the Fall, without the pressure of being the fastest person on the course, this is the category for you.Time will be recorded and posted each week, but there are no placings.
You'll help your college team earn points just by completing the distance. Each cheer squad/fan a college team has will earn that college 1 point.
Awards and Goodies
Each week we'll be printing custom finisher cards. They will be themed after the school that we're racing at for the week, and they'll have each participants stats for the week. Times must be submitted by 9 PM on Saturday.
If you are part of the weeks winning team, your card will be stamped as the weekly winner. We're going to do the same for the season's winner.
