Join Us now! There are no fees. Everyone over 50 welcome!

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 gift certificate and the title “Mr. Grand Prix- 2019”.
The female who completes the most Grand Prix Series races will receive a gift certificate and the title “Miss Grand Prix – 2019”.

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 until you reach 80 points:
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, one of the races will be a “T-shirt Race”. The t-shirt race will be The Tortoise and Hare 5k Handicap Fun Run and Potluck in October. Every participant who wears their Grand Prix shirt, black, pink, neon, or teal, will receive 10 points regardless of where they finish. Runners not wearing a series t-shirt will receive their normal points according to their finish position.

To order your t-shirt email:  betty@silverstrider.com

Be sure and order your Silver Strider Calendar for 2018-19. It’s the easiest way to remember your favorite race dates and entry deadlines. It also makes it easy to map out your running year. To order your calendar, contact Bruce Fisher at: innovate11@comcast.net
