Last year, we partnered with Ontario Masters Athletics to create a new joint series, called the AO/OMA Trillium Running Series. You can find the final results and races which were included in the inaugural year here.
After many years of handing out medals at races, AO and OMA collectively decided to include all age groups and rank athletes on a basis of an age-graded percent. This means that everyone in the race who is an AO or OMA member, can be collectively ranked! At the end of the year, we will tally all results and publish them on the website, with additional mentions on social media accounts. At our year-end Awards Gala (which occurs the same weekend as the last race of the season, we will mention to current series leaders and publish the current results). Final rankings will be given to participants in 3 or more races in the series.
We have also changed to the use of Chip Time vs. Gun time, to equal the playing field for all participants, and to optimize participant safety.
You will see, the series will no longer be exclusively “road running,” with the inclusion of the Snowshoe Canada Ontario Cup Race #2 Snowshoe Kawartha, we hope this will once again be well received by those of you who are looking for a change. This race will not be age-graded but rather we will publish AO members rankings in age groups.

RESULTS: Will be published and updated with each race that takes place
