About the Grand Prix

The GP is a series of races, one each month, where points are awarded to the finishers once age grading has been applied. Each runner's best 7 race results go towards a final total with an overall winner.

The GP's are about more than points though, as a club it is great to see our club shirts out in force at a race, it does get noticed, also there is great camaraderie amongst the members running, you can test yourself by beating your club rivals. If you set a pb you will feel a great sense of achievement as well, and if your training is going well these are great races to target for, and use as a goal. We try to vary the distances from 5k to half marathon. Also we sometimes have a social drink to celebrate afterwards.

Rules

  • Scoring for each race is based on WAVA/WMA Age-grading %.  The runner who achieves the highest age-grading % will be awarded 50 points, the runner-up 47 points, third place 45 points, fourth place 43 points, fifth place 42 points, sixth place 41 points and so on.
  • The full points allocation is as follows: 50,47,45,43,42,41,40,39,38,37,36,35,34,33,32,31,30,29,28,27,26,25,24,23,22, 21,20,19,18,17,16,15,14,13,12,11,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1.
  • Achieving a genuine PB will score a bonus of 5 points.  KFL XC, Joydens Wood and road/multi-terrain races will be treated separately.  Bonus points for KFL XC races will only be awarded where the runner has run the particular course before and the course is not judged to be under distance.  Bonus points will only be awarded for a Joydens Wood 5k race where the runner has run at least one in a previous year.  Times for road/multi-terrain races will only be compared with similar races and will exclude cross country races, parkruns, fun runs, runs entirely on grass and where there is no certification of course measurement. 
  • Race 14 is any marathon (Your best time from any 26mile 385yds/42.195 km marathon in 2016 will count). All runners’ marathon age-graded results will be compared and points awarded at the end of the year.
  • Each runner’s best 3 points scores from the KFL XC races will count, as will the best 3 from the list of 9 road/multiterrain races plus the best 2 point scores from the remaining races, including the Joydens Wood summer series.
  • Trophies will be awarded to the first three men and first three women in the final table.
