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. For every 3 races where a runner 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 is awarded points
  5. The list of qualifying races set out at the start of the year are found below. Any race that is cancelled will be replaced by a race in the same distance category (where possible);
  6. Top 12 scores (or less if 12 races not completed) added together to produce final year total for each runner
  7. 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)
