The Rules of the Game:

We are changing the format for Run the Magnet for 2017 by moving to a points accumulation system to qualify as a Magnet participant.  The goal is to accumulate a total of 20 points, 10 of which must be from ORC events, with respect to the races on ‘The Magnet’.  Any ORC race will count as two points, other races as one point.  The other rules are:

  • Any Distance except kids' runs qualifies
  • Verification and race completion will be monitored by the ORC
  • When you accumulate 18 or more points, submit the following FORM (2017 Run the Magnet Form) by  December 31, 2017 to: Omaha Running Club, PO BOX 34602, Omaha, NE 68134-0602
