It's been a bit of a mammoth task but new Grand Prix tables have now been ratified by the EU and their composition is non negotiable.

There has been a bit of a change in the qualification times for the 6 main open leagues to reflect last year's growth in membership - in effect the bar has been raised! As in 2018, pace per mile for a 10k race has been used - based on an analysis of last year's races. New members with little or no race history have had estimated times but a small number have yet to be assessed! If you are a newer member and not been included or your name is missing, please contact Stewart.

The cut off points for each league is as follows:

Premier: Sub 7:00 minute mile, L1, 7:40; L2, 8:20; L3, 9:00, L4, 10:20, L5 over 10:20. You didn't have to achieve these times at every race - courses and conditions vary!

Current League standings can be accessed via the GP page - or click here
