Grand Prix Series

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 2019 Grand Prix Series there are a total of 15 selected races plus your best parkrun time of the year. Out of these 16 results, your best 10 scores will count towards your final score. Your parkrun times should be picked up automatically at the end of each month (as long as you have Huncote Harriers attached to your parkrun profile).

   LRRL Stilton 7 – 24th Feb
   LRRL Kibworth 6 – 17th March
