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.

Report
Another excellent day for Derwentside AC, thanks firstly to Mark for the excellent organisation and to all the other Derwentside AC members who came along and helped out.

The ladies team ran well lead home this time by Sam Redgate. Claire Wilkie and Clare Williamson both had good runs. Kerry Thompson and Jennifer Long both had interesting races with Jennifer having run the Park run in the morning.

The men were lead home by the team captain Mark who had an excellent run finishing in 65th position, John, Graham, Steve, Michael and Wayne all ran well to count for the team. Well done to all who took part.
In the overall series John and Claire had both already secured their Cross Country Titles. The only real changes were to the 2nd places with mark moving into 2nd place in the mens and Jennifer moving into 2nd place in the ladies competition.
