What is the Grand Prix Series?

Runners are tracked, and each runner's best five runs will count toward total points after the final race. 

 

Points are awarded as  30 points for first, 29 for second, and so on. 

Points will also be awarded for age categories.

As normal, competitors will be awarded points for the Open category along with all other club members.

In addition, they will be awarded a second set of points by being compared with others in the same age category. So the first back in an age category will get 30 points, with the second to finish in that same category receiving 29 etc.

In the event of a tie for any of the prizes, then a countback system will be used to determine the winner. This means that the runners who have tied will then have totals for their best six compared and, if need be, their best seven or best eight and so on.

If both runners have done the same number of races and the total for each comparison always provides an equal total, then their head-to-head for all races they competed in will be tallied, and the one with more wins over the other will win the prize. If this does not indicate a clear winner, it will be declared a draw.

Please remember that Club colours must be worn in Grand Prix races and Club championships to qualify for a prize. Contact a committee member or message on Facebook if you need club kit. 

You must declare as a member of Dumfries Running Club when entering the race, as only those who have done so will be awarded points. So please remember to register as a club member. 

Please also remember to enter races in good time as we find more filling up long before the race.
