Motus Series Points

Motus Off Road events will encourage you to discover some of the most beautiful mountain biking and trail running destinations in America. While our main goal will always focus on getting participants across the finish line, we would like to recognize those who cross the finish line a little faster. Welcome to the Motus Off Road Championships. 

Participants will compete in Motus Off Road races and earn points based on performance in their respective age group. You may race in as many events as you wish, however, only your top performances of the season will count toward the series championships. 

Motus Triathlon Series = Your 4 best race finishes will score championship points. In the event of a tie, a 5th race will serve as tie-breaker. *Must finish 3 races to qualify for championship awards.

Motus Trail Run Series = Your 3 best race finishes will score championship points.. In the event of a tie, a 4th race will serve as tie-breaker. *Must finish 2 races to qualify for championship awards. 

Motus Duathlon Series = Your 2 best race finishes will score championship points. In the event of a tie, a 3rd race will serve as tie-breaker. *Must finish 2 races to qualify for championship awards. 

Participants with highest combined point totals in each age group will become our series champions at the end of the season. 

All Motus multi-sport events are USAT sanctioned, and will follow the rules and regulations set forth by USAT. Motus race results count towards USAT Rankings in addition to the Motus Triathlon Series and Motus Duathlon Series standings.

To encourage participation, all Motus races award series points. To stoke the fire, longer distance Motus races award more series points.

Venues with one race distance will be considered Platinum Races. Venues with multiple race distances will consider the longer distance race as the Platinum Race, and the shorter distance race as the Aurum Race. Points will be awarded to the top 10 finishers in each age group accordingly.

Age groups are calculated using the participant’s age at the end of the current year (December 31st). Competitors will race in the same age group all season, so get to know the competition.

Incentives for age group champions are being finalized. Check back often for updates,  Race Results, and  Series Standings.
