Shamrock Running Club

- Established by Bill Feeney 2001

Shamrock Grand Prix

The 2022 Grand Prix Series

Competition Rules

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.

  • 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 6 races for your points to count towards final awards. For the two virtual races, members will have 7 days to complete it and upload their race in the Shamrock Running Club Strava group, or share their results from Garmin Connect or any other app with the GP Coordinator.
  • 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.
  • In case of a tie in the leaderboard, the longest the distance of a race, the higher your position  in the leaderboard will be.

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 2022, your AG will be your age as of 01/01/2022 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.


  1. $35 gift card for first place male and female.
  2. $25 gift card for second place male and female.
  3. $20 gift card for third place male and female.
  4. A recognition gift for all the club members who participated (6 races or more).

In order to receive any of these prizes your Shamrock membership must be in good standing.
