Dave was the king of Silver Strider Series. Over the years he finished the most series races of all male participants with 216 races. He was the first male to reach 100 races and is the only male charter member of the Century Club.
In recognition of Dave’s devotion to the Silver Striders, a new series will be held in his name.
The 2023 Dave Sherman Memorial Series will take place from January through December. The Series will consist of 19 races. Competition will take place in 5 year age groups from 50 to 94. Points will be given for your finish position within your age group for each race you complete. 1st=10 points, x2nd= 9points, x3rd= 8 points, x4th= 7 points, x5th= 6 points, x6th or lower= 5 points.
If you change age groups during the year, it’s okay. You bring your points with you into your new age group. Your final age group* is the age group you are in on December 10, 2023.
If you complete eight races or less, they all count. If you do more than 8, only the 8 highest scores count. A perfect score is 80 points. In case of a tie in points, the runner with the most races wins. If race numbers are the same then the oldest runner wins. Awards will be given out to all Series finishers. Completing 5 or more races qualifies you as a Series finisher. To make it easier for everyone 6 of the races in the Series have a -0- entry fee (7 if you are over 60).
Participation! That’s our goal. We want a record number of finishers. Running or walking, fast or slow, we want you to join us. We only require that you be 50 years of age or older before December 1, 2023.
Here are the current standings. Remember, if you have more than 8 races, only your 8 best races count. That means after 8 races you can continue to improve your point total with additional races. Entries are shown below. If I have you in the wrong age group please let me know at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Symbols are: (F)= finisher (W)= age group winner * = runner will enter the next age group before the final standings on Dec. 10th. 80= perfect score 8+= 8 races or more __________________________________________________________________________________________________________
