WRRC Grand Prix
Epic Racing Series Open To All Club Members
This will be the 17th year for this WRRC racing series, open to all club members.
In order to qualify, a member must do at least three of 10 races listed below. Family membership qualifies all family members individually.
Our Grand Prix series offers a variety of terrains, trails and distances. This year, the events include (3) 5K’s, (2) 4-Mile Runs, (2) 10K’s, (1) 15K’s and (2) Half-Marathon’s and (1) Full Marathon. The scoring system is designed to give a bit of motivation to all participants. Participation is valued as well as speed. You have the option of running the NHRMC Full Marathon or the Half Marathon and or Battleship Half Marathon. If you run in both NHRMC and Battleship we will only use your best score of the two for scoring purposes
While you only need to run 3 races to be eligible for age group awards, we will only score your top 5 races. Relay for Life and Battle at the Border are not considered races, but you will get 5 points for participation in these Club worthwhile events.
The rules are as follows:
Points will be awarded for each of the ten races as follows: Everyone gets 5 points for finishing. There will be points given for Age Group place finishers among WRRC members as follows: first (10 points); second (8 points); third (6 points); fourth (4 points); and fifth (2 points.) We have two 5-point bonus events - Participate in the American Cancer Relay for Life (May) and Participate in our Club’s Battle on the Border with the Myrtle Beach Running Club (July).
The standings will be updated on the WRRC website and/or in news updates or newsletters as the year progresses; and awards will be presented at the annual WRRC Christmas party in December.
Contact David Flory – firstname.lastname@example.org - with any questions, scoring corrections or omissions.
Please note that some events have races of more than one distance, only one of the races will be eligible for Grand Prix points, so make plans to do the correct event.
