After several discussions with the WORS new marathon event race directors and input from many current and new WORS racers, we have decided to make a format change to the new WORS Marathon Series. An intermediate distance for Sports has been added.
For its inaugural year the marathon series will super-size its popular cross-country format by basically doubling lap length. Elites and Comps will race four laps (approximately 40 miles), Sports three laps (approximately 30 miles), and Citizens two laps (approximately 20 miles). Citizen Youth will do a modified lap of 6-9 miles.
It is our hope that the new intermediate distance will alleviate the concerns of many Sports racers while allowing the most talented of Sports enough distance to achieve their training and racing goals, with a result of maximum participation and fun for all.
