2019 Heart of America Points Champions!

HOA Logo 18Thirty-three winners of the 2019 Heart of America (HOA) Championship series have the opportunity to race for the Championship crown Sunday, Sept. 22 at Cyman.

Throughout the season, all athletes who participate in an HOA race get points for each race they do. At the end of the season, we recognize the top three overall point winners, top masters, and first place in each age group. The more you race, regardless to some extent of where you place, the higher your potential standings.

Each HOA champ gets the opportunity to race in the Champions wave at the Cyman Sprint. The top five athletes in the wave, in both male and female divisions, win free entries to HOA races in 2020.

Participants of any age could claim the top prize, as times are age-adjusted according to the formula used by U.S. Track & Field.

Heart of America points earned by Cyman participants this year will count toward series points next year. Click here for the complete standings.
