Club In-House Grand Prix

The Club Grand Prix

The Club Grand Prix is an in-house competition run every year from January 1st

 

The Club Grand Prix will consist of 12 standard races varying in distance both road and off road. In addition there will be 4 Wildcards selected throughout the year, plus you can earn 50 points by completing a marathon.

 

To qualify you must be a current paid up club and EA member and you MUST wear club colours for the race. A minimum of 6 races need to be completed to qualify for any award.

 

Points are awarded after each race based on the finish position of each qualifying club member, the first member receives 50 points and each subsequent member will receive one less point. Men’s and women’s points are awarded separately. Best 6 results from each participant are used to calculate results. In the event of a tie, the next highest results counts until a winner is found.

 

For the marathon points you can enter any marathon race in 2023 and on full completion and submission of result you will earn yourself 50 points which will count towards your best 6 results. Some simple rules:

 

  • ​Marathon result needs to be emailed to Tom with a link to the electronic results for verification
  • Virtual events do not qualify
  • Only one event completed counts (1 x 50 points max)
  • Ultra events qualify provided a single distance is minimum 26.2 miles
  • 6 other GP events need to be completed for the points to be included (if you enter 5 races and 1 marathon you do not qualify).
