Grand Prix Series

Register is closed for 2014

Results Updated Below:  as of September 5, 2014 

The purpose of the ORRRC Grand Prix is to recognize members who participate and volunteer at a variety of club races. The participants accumulate points to determine annual club champions in age group divisions. Awards are given to all participants who meet the minimum requirements. Members who wish to participate should register by April 30. Those who register after April 30 may do so but will not receive retroactive credit for races or volunteer points. Information needed to register is name, any other name you may use for races, gender, birth date, and either phone number or email address. Please sign up online here.

Race participation - Runners 15 years and over must finish two club races in each of the three distance categories (two category A races, two category B races, and two category C races). Runners 10-14 must finish four category A races and two category B races. Runners 9 and under must finish any 6 Grand Prix races.

Working two of the following events: Marathon/Half Marathon, Lou Cox race/expo, Ghosts and Goblins race, and the Turkey Trot in the current year. Plus be a non-running volunteer in at least 2 smaller events.

Points will be awarded by age group (determined as of July 1) as follows: First - 5 points, Second - 4 points, Third - 3 points, and all other finishers 2 points. Runners 9 and under will receive 5 points for each finished race.

Results are posted on the ORRRC website on a periodic basis beginning no later than April. The points may change as new members join through the end of April. It is expected that participants will maintain their own records and periodically review their results.

Grand Prix Qualifying Races
Note: Categories are determined by the planned race distance as given by the race director. The category will not be changed when changes are required before or during the race. The governing category is what is posted here. The plan is for category A to be less than 3.9 miles, B to be 4.0 - 9.2, and C to be 9.3 and greater. For example, if you run a race that was planned to be 4 miles and was scheduled as a B race, but due to flooding or some other reason is cut short to 3.5 miles, it would still be a B race. Races are subject to rescheduling and cancellation.
