Here's how Run the Door entrants in the Run Wild got their game faces on! The 2017 edition dodged the heavy rain and the Quarter Marathon and 5K were enjoyed by all despite a few raindrops here and there. Great job by everyone, runners and the race organizers!

2. You score 3, 2 or 1 points if you take first, second or third respectively in your age group.

3.  You score 3, 2, 0r 1 additional points if you are the first, second or third male or female OVERALL in a Run the Door race. 

4. If you are one of the circuit race directors or on a circuit race committee, you score 10 points.

VOLUNTEER FOR POINTS!  You also can score 2 points as a volunteer for DCSSA at the Door County Half-Marathon, Peninsula Century Spring Classic, Door County Triathlon, Peninsula Century Fall Classic, Fall 50 Relay and possibly more.

The Door County Silent Sports Alliance will keep track of points.  The top 25 Overall runners, top 3 Youth runners ages 12 and under and the Top 5 Out-of-County (Non-youth) Runners, regardless of gender,  will receive distinctive  pottery awards made by Liz Butler or medals (youth) at the Post-season Party at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. Remaining registered runners will be eligible for random prizes.
