Grand Prix Series (Full Results) and Series Summary

The club Grand Prix series is an internal club competition which is designed to encourage members to take part in races and represent their club and also to reward good performance. There is a separate Grand Prix Series for the ladies and the men.

A series of races are selected each year and points are awarded based on where you finish in each race: The first Harrier across the finish line is awarded 50 points, the second Harrier gets 47 points, the third Harriers receives 45 points and then points decrease by 1 for each Harrier after that (fourth gets 44 points, fifth gets 43 points, sixth gets 42 points etc).

For the 2017 Grand Prix Series there are a total of 23 selected races plus your best parkrun time of the year and your best Half Marathon time of the year. Out of the 25 results, your best 15 scores will count towards your final score and 5 bonus points will be awarded for each LRRL league race completed.

The series runs right up until the last parkrun of the year on 30th December. In order to be eligible for any Grand Prix prizes you must be a fully paid up member of Huncote Harriers at the end of the year when all of the scores are finalised. Your parkrun times should be picked up automatically (as long as you have Huncote attached to your parkrun profile) but your Half Marathon times will need to be submitted to the Results database in order to be counted – please submit any of your results missing from the database via the ‘Submit Your Results’ section of the Results page.
