Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Grand Prix will be on hold until further notice. We will not include the Kick n’ for Kids, Samatha’s Harvest 5K and the Feeney 5K races.
The primary purpose of our Grand Prix series is (1) to promote team spirit by increasing Club member participation in a variety of races and (2) to promote the Shamrock Running Club(SRC) within the wider running community.
Guidelines and Rules:
- All Club members are automatically enrolled in the GP and awarded points for each GP race they participate in; however, you must complete a minimum of 8 Grand Prix races for your points to count towards final awards.
- At each GP race, points will be awarded to the top finishers in each age and gender category (as determined by the SRC). For example, 10 points will be awarded to the top Shamrock finisher in each age category, 9 points to the second, 8 points to the third etc. All finishers will receive at least one point.
- At each GP race, additional points will be awarded to the first three overall male and female finishers: 3 points for 1st place, 2 points for 2nd place, 1 point for 3rd place.
- Age categories for both Men and Women will be 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 & Above. A runner’s age category for the year will be determined by his/her age on the date of the first race on the schedule (for 2020, your AG will be your age as of 01/01/2020 at the Run Your Hangover Off Race). Participants will not move age categories during the year and cannot earn points in more than one age category. GP standings will be updated after each race and will be posted on www.shamrockrunningclub.com and sent out via email. Members should review the results and notify the Grand Prix coordinator within 10 days of any corrections or omissions.
If you have any questions contact the Grand Prix coordinator Ruth Cardona.
