Rules – Top 7 scores are tabulated for Grand Prix standings

50% age graded and 50% race placement

  • OP — Where a runner places in the Overall Standings
  • AP —  Where a runner places in the Age-Graded Standings
  • PTS —  Add up the OP and the AP and you get your Grand Prix points, the least amount of points, the higher you place
  • Runners (male and female) must run in at least SEVEN road races in order to qualify for the year-ending prizes
  • All  club members’ times and scores are calculated in the Grand Prix series; however, if you do not run in SEVEN races, and it is evident as the year goes on that you will miss five races, then your times and scores will be DELETED and you will be INELIGIBLE in the scoring of past, present, and future races for that year.
  • TIES:

The $100, $80, $60, $40, and $20 prizes will stay the same, but some of those prizes will be shared between runners if there is a tie for a place in the standings.

For example, If you and ‘Runner B’ finish the season tied for second place, then you and ‘Runner B’ will split the second and third-place money. With two runners tied for second place, there will be no third place. The next runner in the standings will be the fourth-place runner and earn the fourth-place money.

If you and ‘Runner B’ finish the season tied for third place, then you and ‘Runner B’ will split the third and fourth-place money. With two runners tied for third place, there will be no fourth place. The next runner in the standings will be the fifth place runner and earn the fifth-place money.

If you and ‘Runner B’ and ‘Runner C’ finish the season in a three-way tie for second place, then you and ‘Runner B’ and ‘Runner C’ will split the second, third, and fourth-place money. With three runners tied for second place, that means there will be no third or fourth places. The next runner in the standings will be the fifth place runner and earn the fifth-place money.

If there is a four-way tie, or (gasp!) the unthinkable five-way tie, then you can do the math!
