GP Fixtures: 2018 – 2019

The Elvet Striders Grand Prix is an annual competition for club members that covers a range of different races. For more information read the Introduction page.

Here are planned GP fixtures for 2018/2019. The GP calendar can be a volatile beast. Some races don’t announce the specific date until closer to the event, so calendar conflicts and race clashes are inevitable. Dates can change. Events can be cancelled. If you see something you feel needs flagged, let us know.

Also for 2018/2019 …

The basic format remains the same – 6 races per category, 15pts for first Strider in each, down to 1pt for 15th and all subsequent Striders, prizes for category and overall. However, we’re now also bracketing by age: <40, 40-60 and 60+ (smaller categories were considered, as was age-grading, but both involve more work than we feel it reasonable for volunteers to take on), so prizes are now attainable by those who, whilst they run hard, cannot hope to compete head-to-head with a remarkably-fast 30yr-old. Finally, to further encourage the relay tradition of the club, a flat 5 points will be awarded to all club members participating in club-funded relays, eg. Cathedral, Signals, Calderdale except those which require runners to be of an elite-standard to compete in. Why? Because relays are the closest we get to running as more than individuals, and are good for the soul of the runner and the club.
