Stragglers Winter Grand Prix
We had so many more Stragglers take part in Cross-country races last year and we are aiming to continue the resurgence this autumn!
It's now time to announce the races that will make up The Stragglers Winter Grand Prix Competition for 2019/20. For those new to the club, the competition is made up of selected races from which you can accumulate points based on where you finish relative to your fellow Stragglers. To qualify for an award, you need to have run at least 4 of the races.
The races are open to all club members, and the club pays all the entry fees, so yes, it’s completely free! If you’ve not done Cross-country before (or who haven’t done it for many years) why not give it a go this year?
The races that will count in The Stragglers Winter Grand Prix are marked with a "WGP" in the Key Races (see here)
10pts are awarded for all finishers + Bonus of 25pts down to 1pt for the first 25 in each race.Your best 4 scores will be totalled with additional races being used to decide ties. There are awards for the highest scoring male and female, and also awards for:
- First & runner up senior man, M40, M50, M60, M70
- First & runner up senior lady, F35, F45, F55, F65
There will also be the male and female hero awards for the runners who complete the most races and score the most points.
