WIN MORE Road Warrior Prizes & Points
To improve your Road Warrior results and overall results at races, as we say in all our materials, you'll find that doing speedwork once a week will make a big difference. Ever wonder, dream, hope, to improve your time, aim for a time goal, qualify for Boston?

Here's how you do it... check out Marathon Dynamics, a small company with big results for runners. It doesn't matter how fast you can run a 5k or marathon now, they will help you improve your time.

And it doesn't matter that they're based in Mississauga... they can provide a customized training plan and email it to you anywhere.  If you DO live or work in the Toronto to Oakville corridor, you might also join one of their speed workouts each week for a few months (custom training plan required for these).

If you just linked here from a race website, this is where you sign up to become a Road Warrior so you'll be eligible for Road Warrior prizes at that race. Read more below about the program.

SLOW and FAST runners can win!
Win Prizes from the 'Most Improved Runner' Program!
Members of the ROAD WARRIOR program, from SLOW to FAST runners, win prizes at Ontario races just for IMPROVING their running times.

It's not about the SHOES! 
It’s about you running a little faster per kilometer at any race distance. It’s simply about you improving your time in races.

There are prizes and then there are PRIZES 

Prizes go to 3 Road Warriors at every Road Warrior race who have the best improvement (we keep track of it all). And the points Road Warriors earn at each of those races add up. At the end of the year those with the most points win BIG prize bundles!

How it Works

1. Any race distances in between the 4 standards - 5k, 10k, Half and Marathon -  (or beyond like an ultra) would count points based on the next distance below it (i.e. a 12k race would earn 10k points, an 8k race would earn 5k points). Only races of 5k or more count for points and prizing in the program.  Bottom line: all Road Warrior races count from 5k and longer, both on road and on trail.  

2. The more Road Warriors in a race, the more points awarded.  This means there's a cap to the points awarded... OR, put another way, the fewer Road Warriors at a race, the fewer points awarded. Example (as per table below):  If only 3 Road Warriors are at a 10k, the 1st place one will get 6 pts, 2nd will get 5 pts, 3rd will get 4 pts... If only 10 Road Warriors are at a marathon, the awards points will start at 19 (10 points places from the bottom) and go down to 10 points.  Bottom line:  the more Road Warriors at a race, the more points will be awarded (so encourage your friends to race too). 

3. At most, 10 races contribute to a runner's season point total (the 10 races that accumulate the most points). This way runners are still encouraged to improve and race and aim for the higher points at any Road Warrior Race they attend. 

4. After each Road Warrior race prizes will be awarded to the top 3 Road Warriors and at the end of the year the top 10 points finishers will win prizes.
