Grand Prix Rules

The Grand-Prix is a competition for all Hamilton Harriers that is held over a number of races throughout the year. 

The scoring system has been developed to give everyone a chance of winning the Grand-Prix.


For the benefit of all members, the aim is to:

  • encourage members to turn out for more races during the year
  • improve performance levels across the board
  • introduce a more competitive element into club running throughout the year

The Grandprix follows of a number of rules, which are:

  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. 2 points awarded for a PB (based on last two full seasons of official recorded times)
  3. 1 joker is awarded to each runner at the season start, 1 additional joker awarded for every 3 races ran resulting in only 1 point
  4. Joker must be played before the race and doubles the base points (i.e. not the 2 points if a PB is achieved);
  5. 6 races must be completed throughout the season to qualify, including one half marathon
  6. One marathon can count with the ‘mythical marathon’ point scoring
  7. The list of qualifying races set out at the start of the year (with approx dates) are found below, any race that is cancelled will be replaced by a race in the same distance category (where possible);
  8. Three races of the year scores double points, these races are voted for by club members and are highlighted in the list (for 2015: Troon, Calderglen Trail 10k and Strathaven)
  9. Top 12 scores (or less if 12 races not completed) added together to produce final year total for each runner
  10. Club vest must be worn to qualify (assuming you have one of course! – speak to Ross Bickerstaff if you don’t)
