What is the Grand Prix?
The Grand Prix is an internal club competition which begins in June and ends twelve races later the following year in the Spring. All members can participate and prizes are awarded based on finishing positions. Grand Prix races are great for meeting a lot of members on race days and of course for bringing out a bit of competitive spirit! The first Grand Prix competition was held back in 2002/03 and has been running ever since.
What events are included?
Grand Prix events are chosen by the Grand Prix Organisers. Any event can be chosen but they tend to be local races within a reasonable distance from the club. Distances vary but there will always be races which also double up as the club championships at one mile, 5km, 10km, 10 mile and half marathon.
How can I take part?
Any club member can take part, though all members are responsible for entering themselves into any Grand Prix events. In order to score points, members must wear an official club top or vest.
How is the competition scored?
There are two competitions: first-past-the-post and also an age-graded competition. 20 points will be awarded to the first placed runner and awarded in descending order thereafter. All runners will be awarded a minimum of one point. A full copy of the rules can be found here.
