Top 3 Families - enrollment required by August 1
The family that attends rides together is noteworthy and warrants distinction. This award recognizes families who compete in the sport, even if they enter and complete different distances.
Points accumulate when two or more Family members complete distances entered at the same ride. At least one of the members completing their distance must meet the criteria of Child and at least one of the members completing their distance must meet the criteria of Adult. If this criterion is met and additional Family members complete their distances, points from all Children and only two Adults will be counted. The Family with the highest total accumulated points (endurance and/or limited distance) are recognized.
For the purposes of this award, an Adult is a Senior rider, age 22 or older, who is either the legal/blood parent of the child(ren), the legal guardian of the child(ren), or is designated by the child(ren)'s legal parents as a family member by legal/blood means. Adults can include parents, grandparents, aunts, and/or uncles. A Child is either a Junior or Young Rider with legal/blood ties to the Adults designated on the Family enrollment form.
ADDITIONAL ELIGIBILITY INFORMATION: All individuals forming the Family must be PNER members. An enrollment form must be submitted to the Awards Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 1 to verify eligibility requirements have been met.
