Grand Prix Series
The scoring system has been amended for 2018 to endeavour to balance results more equitably especially for events with high or low turnouts.
For the Open Leagues the first club finisher will receive 100 points and the last 20 points (irrespective of which league they are in). Other places are allocated points calculated pro-rata to the number attending (calculated as 80/number of runners -1)
No of runners 40: 1st 100 pts 10th 81.5 pts, 20th 61 pts, 30th 40.5pts, Last 20 pts.
No of runners 30: 1st 100 pts, 10th 75.2 pts, 20th 47.6 pts, last 20 pts.
No of runners 90: 1st 100 pts, 10th 91.9 pts, 20th 82.9 pts, 30th 73.9 pts, last 20 pts.
Vets and Ladies Leagues will be calculated on a similar basis but with 50 points for 1st and 10 points for last
Where times are identical points will be based in finish position in the official results.
Club Vests/T -shirts to be worn to count (exceptions can be made for those who have recently joined the club).
A maximum of 10 events will count spread across the event groups and subject to the minimum and maximum allowed in each group.
Our Year Long Competition
Virtually every running club will have a Grand Prix Series of races throughout the calendar year designed to encourage members to race over a wide range of distances. The events we select tend to be more local, although there are exceptions, and none are included where entry is difficult or over-expensive. Club camaraderie benefits from large numbers turning out in their club vests - join in and enjoy our days out.
Events are spead throughout the year - you don't have to do them all, but the more you enter - the higher your points total will be. You can join the club partway through the year and still have a chance of success.
Every club member is included - if for any reason you don't want to be - just let us know.
Find out which league you're in
The top 3 in each league will receive a trophy at our annual Awards Dinner.
