In 2004, the Kalamazoo Area Runners began to administer the “Kalamazoo Area Runners Club Championship Series.” All club members are automatically enrolled in the series. Non-club members cannot participate.

The Club Championship Series consists of a ranking system maintained by KAR based on individual finishes at local races. Standings are listed within the traditional 5 year age groups. Age group awards will be presented to the top three in each age division, male and female, at the Club Series Awards Celebration in November.

Events participating in the Club Series Race Discount Program offer discounts ranging from $2 to $10 to KAR members (unless otherwise noted below) and are automatically included in the Club Championship Series. The KAR discount will automatically be applied to member registrations for most events utilizing the RunSignUp registration platform.  A few events require the KAR 4-digit membership code upon registration. This code is sent to the membership in the introductory email of each edition of The Rundown e-newsletter and the monthly race discount listing.

Please note the status of races below, the Club Championship Series Celebration and the Club Championship Series are subject to change at any time due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Registration information for most races listed below may be found at www.classicrace.com, or www.macssportstiming.com

Standings from previous years are listed at the bottom of this page.
