The Grand Prix Series statistics
compiled by Allen Walker

 

The goal of the Grand Prix Series is to provide fun, camaraderie and motivation for training.

Here’s how it works …

There are 28 races in the Series. Points are for your 8 highest finishes. Run or walk a minimum of 8 races and you are a finisher.

All finishers receive a trophy and a gift certificate. The gift certificate will be to a running store and/or a free entry to a race.

Achievement awards:
The male who completes the most Grand Prix Series races will receive a $50 gift certificate and the title “Mr. Grand Prix- 2019”.
The female who completes the most Grand Prix Series races will receive a $50 gift certificate and the title “Miss Grand Prix – 2019”.
The runner (male or female) who runs the most Grand Prix Series miles will receive a special trophy.

Runners and walkers earn points in their age division every time they complete a series race. Do as many races as you like. Only your best 8 finishes count. 80 points is the maximum score:
1st = 10 pts    6th = 5 pts
2nd = 9 pts     7th = 4 pts
3rd = 8 pts     8th = 3 pts
4th = 7 pts     9th = 2 pts
5th = 6 pts     10th & up = 1 pt

The men and women age groups are: 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85-89, 90-94, 95 and up

NOTE: If you enter a new age division during the year, you bring your points with you. You will finish in the age division you are in at the last Grand Prix Series race.

Tie Breakers: In case of a tie in points, the participant with the most races at the end of the season wins. If they have the same number of races, the older person  wins.

To add to the fun, we are making two of the races “T-shirt Races”. The first t-shirt race will be the Silver Strider Fun Run and Potluck in August. Every participant who wears the shirt, black, pink, or neon, receives 10 points regardless of where they finish. Runners not wearing a series t-shirt will receive their normal points according to their finish position.

The second t-shirt race will be the race of your choice for buying and wearing one of the neon shirts.

To order your t-shirt: email Linda Walker at: Iwalk4Him@msn.com

The Sandra Madden Award is for any runner who completes all of the races on the schedule. They must include the NODM full marathon.
