GP results updated Jan 2017, Thursday, January 12, 2017

Grand Prix Race. The GP results have been updated after Herrington Park. The next GP event is the Brass Monkey Half Marathon.

(Update: I used the provisional results for Herrington Park instead of waiting for the official results, which means that some of the results, and consequently, GP totals, are not correct. We’ll get this sorted)

GP Update after Pier to Pier

With Striders being the biggest club at the Pier to Pier thanks go again to John Hutchinson for the task of crunching the GP data. The latest positions can now be found on the GP Results page, with still everything to play for.

We have a fixture change for the fourth Polka-Dot/Mountain event. M4 was scheduled to be the ever popular Cronkley Fell Race, but unfortunately this (sort of) clashes with the DKMS Charity Relays. It has been decided to re-schedule this event to the 19th August to the Sedbergh Hills fell race. This means the next polka-dot/mountain event is Saltwell Harriers Fell race on 3rd July. This is a fantastic first-timers event for anyone wishing to give fell racing a try.

The updated GP schedule can be found on the GP fixtures page.
