To foster healthy competition among New York area clubs, encourage excellence in running, and help boost NYRR race participation and spectator interest, NYRR and Club Council designate 11 NYRR scored races per year as Club Points races.
These races vary in distance. Clubs accumulate points based on their finishing places in these races. At the end of the year, each club's point totals in the nine best races of the 11-race series (the lowest two scores for each club will be automatically dropped) are added to determine the club's overall ranking for the year. The club with the most points is the winner, the club with the second-highest number of points places second, and so on. At NYRR's annual Club Night, the previous year's top clubs are honored and receive special awards.
Clubs can score points at club points races in 14 different divisions: men's and women's open (all ages, grouped into A, B, and C subdivisions), as well as men's and women's age-group divisions for 40+, 50+, 60+, and 70+.
