Grand Prix

The Grand Prix is an annual competition for all Hamilton Harriers that is held over a number of races. The scoring system has been developed to give everyone a chance of winning the Grand Prix.

 

The aim is to:

  • Encourage members to take part in races during the year.

  • Improve performance levels for Harriers.

  • Introduce a competitive element into club running throughout the year.

Grand Prix rules

  1. Points are awarded on completion of a race - 5 points for 1st home, down to 1 pt for 5th place and/or finishing.

  2. For every 3 races where a harrier scores 1 point, an additional 5 bonus points are awarded.

  3. 6 races must be completed throughout the season to qualify, including one half marathon.

  4. Any marathon run also counts as 5 points - only one per runner in the year is awarded points.

  5. The list of qualifying races set out at the start of the year are found above. Any race that is cancelled will be replaced by a race in the same distance category (where possible).

  6. Club vest MUST be worn to qualify, and registered as club member for results (assuming you have a vest of course! – speak to Ross Bickerstaff if you don’t)

  7. Highest placing in 1 race in an "event series" is counted, not both.

  8. Joker card - Play once and get double points for that race, but the harrier has to inform a Grand Prix contact before the race.

  9. Seasons Best - First race in a category (10k/half marathon) is a bench mark for the year. After that if the harrier gets a SB in the race category 2 points will be awarded for each SB.
