Once the roster has been established, go race!  Designated club representatives will collect your race results and report them to the Mideast Region. Note that you do not have to have an annual USAT license to participate, but more points are awarded for USAT license holders.   If you will be racing in any USAT sanctioned event in any distance (sprint, Olympic, long course) in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois or Kentucky this year, please participate for CTC!  (Please keep in mind that you can only participate in the series on behalf of one team or club). 

Participate in a USAT Sanctioned Event and record your results in the
CTC MERCRS Race Result Form. The coordinators will send the results to the Mid East Region.

The 2017 Scoring Guidelines outline the scoring, prizes, and rules in detail.  There are also double points for select races.  See the
