Grand Prix

We organise a Grand Prix series in which runners compete over a series of varied races throughout the year, and score points according to their relative finish positions. The Grand Prix is divided into six divisions, so everyone is competing in a group of their own ability. Prizes are awarded at the annual Christmas party to the top three runners in each division.

The races include some local races, some popular favourites, and very often, something that we haven’t done before. We will also accept your result from any marathon you choose, and your fastest result of the year from any parkrun globally.

The scoring system is very simple. The first runner from each division scores 20 points. The second scores 19, then the third scores 18 and so on.  The best eight scores will count as your final score, however you need to compete in a minimum of six events for your scores to count. You also need to make sure you are wearing your club vest, and number swapping is not allowed!

Should you think yo’re in the wrong division at the start of the season, you will be assessed after the 2nd race and moved up or down to suit your ability. Once all people are moved, the race times will be assessed and scores adjusted to suit in any divisions that have been affected.

As these are competitive races, gun-time and the finishing order will be used to determine our results, even if chip-time is available. This does not apply to the marathon.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic there has been some inevitable changes/cancellations to the GP fixtures from the start of the year as shown below. There may still be some further changes required and I will endeavour to update you all as soon as I know more.
