Front Runners Awards Nominations
Each of the following awards, with the exception of Front Runner of the Year, Guy Zelenak and AREA awards, will be given to two members, as voted on by the board, after receiving nominations from the club, generally, and from the standing race captains, specifically. Members are encouraged to nominate members whom they feel are worthy and to give specific reasons for their votes. Board members are to use the following descriptions/criteria in assessing the award winners for this year. The board makes its decisions with the input of the coaches and race captains. Voting board members are not eligible for the awards listed below. Members are only eligible to win the Front Runner of the Year, Guy Zelenak, AREA, and Newcomer of the Year awards once each.
Furthermore, the club recognizes that the gender categories for Awards Night do not fully reflect the gender spectrum and identities of the membership. It instead correspond to the gender categories used for scoring purposes in the majority of races our members participate in — one for people who typically race for the club in male categories and one for people who typically race for the club in female categories.
