RAFFLE  RUNS

This year the Predict Series of run/walks will be called Raffle Runs and a raffle prize will be given at each event.  You must be present to win and you must be a club member to be eligible.  These will be fun social group runs with no timing.  The runs will still be free but you don’t have to predict your time and you may run shorter or longer.  Many races end with a pot luck to enjoy the company of other area runners. Please join the fun by bringing your favorite dish to share.

We will have a sign in sheet, so if you participate in at least 6 events in 2024, you will earn your free 2024 SCR Shirt.

Raffle Series

The prediction series races (now called Raffle Series) are sponsored by Southern Colorado Runners (SCR) and are FREE to all SCR members. Please feel free to join the club ($15.00 for individual and $20.00 for family to be included in the results and awards for this series)

  • The races take place in various locations around Pueblo, Pueblo West, Colorado City and Canon City and run on varying terrain — streets, gravel roads and trails.
  • Races are all in fun and give everyone a chance to compete. You don’t have to run the entire distance or you may go farther if you like.
  • Many races end with a pot luck to enjoy the company of other area runners. Please join the fun by bringing your favorite dish to share!

Rules and Guidelines

  • Before the race, each runner must sign a waiver
  • After the run your actual time is recorded. 
  • Headsets and iPods are allowed but be careful of your surroundings. Streets have cars and some trails are narrow.
  • ALL PARTICIPANTS START AT SAME TIME: To simplify the timing and results, all runners and walkers will start at the same time and on the same clock. There will be 10 to 13 predicts during the year, and 6 must be completed to qualify for an award. This allows everyone, including those with injuries or commitments to family or work, to complete the number necessary to qualify for an award. Awards (usually an SCR running shirt) will be given out at the annual SCR Awards Banquet in late Jan/ early Feb
  • Generally, a time limit will be placed on completing the predict, and anyone who finishes after the finish-line has closed will not be included in the results. Placing a time-limit on the predict allows everyone, including volunteers, to take part in post-predict festivities.
  • Race directors will be encouraged to layout and mark a separate course for walkers, especially when the run is relatively long. This will enable all participants to finish the predict timely, allowing everyone, including the finish-line crew and other volunteers, to enjoy any post-predict festivities, such as a brunch.

Awards: All SCR club members are eligible for the Raffle Series awards

  • Members who complete 6 prediction events will receive an award at the annual awards banquet in January.
  • The top 3 people with the highest points will receive additional awards.
  • If you place 4 through 25 you are welcome to a group hug and a laurel and hearty handshake.
