Competition Events Information
The CFFR is open to athletes ages 3 and above. Athletes aged middle school and older can compete in the 4X100-Meters, the 4X400-Meters, and the distance medley relay (DMR), which is comprised of a 1200-meter leg, a 400-Meter leg,
30-meter dash (ages 3-4, boys and girls combined)
60-meter dash (ages 5-6, boys and girls combined)
80-meter dash (ages 7-8, boys and girls combined)
100-meter dash (ages 9-11, boys and girls combined)
Athletes middle school-age and older can register for the relay events based on the options and parameters indicated on the Divisions and Categories Table (view/download here). For the relay events, it is recommended that each team have 5 runners: 4 to comprise the core team, and 1 alternate runner to run in place of one of the main 4 in the event of injury or other unforeseen events.
All athletes ages 3 to 11 who participate in the individual sprint races earn a participation ribbon if they are registered before the day of the race. Young athletes who register on Race Day are, regrettably, not guaranteed a ribbon. The top three finishers in each of the dashes earn additional prizes. In the relay events, the top three teams in each age group category earn a beautifully-crafted medal, and the team posting the fastest overall time in each event earns an additional prize. Registration fees for the relay events are $60 per team per event and $5 for each dash event for participants who register by the Early Bird deadline of September 9th, 2017. For participants registering between September 10th, 2017, and September 23rd, 2017 (Race Day), fees are $10 for each children’s dash and $70 per team for each relay event.
