Note: The 2014 Rocky Ridge website has not yet been made, but you can get information about the 2013/14 Ultra Half Series below (2014 standings are here).
All half marathon runners are invited to participate in the Brazen Ultra Half Series.
Our toughest half marathons measure at least a little (and sometime more than just a little) longer than 13.1 miles. What really makes them "ultra", however is the serious ascents and descents and variety of tough trails you have to run to finish them. While flat half marathons are always a challenge, these "ultra-half-marathons" take it to another level!
HOW THE SERIES WORKS
To be a series finisher, you must run at least five of the thirteen races in the series, plus the Rocky Ridge Half Marathon.
The Rocky Ridge Half Marathon will be the Brazen Racing Ultra-Half Series Finale.
WHAT YOU GET FOR PARTICIPATING
All finishers will receive a special Brazen Racing Ultra-Half Series die-cast finisher coaster.
WHAT YOU GET FOR WINNING
The 2014 prizes for first through third (male and female) are:
1st Place: $1,000
2nd Place: $500
3rd Place: $250
RACES OF THE BRAZEN RACING ULTRA-HALF SERIES
We encourage you to run them all, but you only need to run five of these:

HOW THE SERIES IS SCORED
Because some courses are faster than others, the cumulative series winner will be that runner with the lowest "time back" for their five best races, plus the Rocky Ridge Half Marathon. "Time back" is the amount of time a runner is behind the overall male or female winner. The lower the total amount of time, the higher the runner will rank. The winner of each race will have the lowest "time back" for that race, which is 0.
SERIES RESULTS AND STANDINGS
Standings will be posted after the first five races in the series have taken place.
All runners should read and understand the race rules.
