2017 competitions

Senior Men's and Ladies Road Race Grand Prix Series

The Senior Grand Prix series is based around local road races that take place in our area. Each athlete has their own handicap for each distance (10Km, 10 Mile and 1/2 Marathon) or race if the race is not an exact distance such as the Blaydon race. The more time they knock off their time the more points they receive and the further away from their time the less points they receive. If you are doing a distance or event for the first time you will receive 40pts automatically.

The handicap time is based on the the athletes performances from the previous two years ie for 2013 handicap times it is the times form 2011 and 2012 that count.

For both the the men and ladies it is the best 8 events to count. The winners being the athletes with the most points at the end of the year.
