Summer Grand Prix 2020

Due to the suspension of the usual club activities, the normal Summer Grand Prix programme had to be cancelled. Get ready for the relaunch of the Stragglers Summer Grand Prix 2020 as a set of virtual races.

Included in this year's slimmed down event will be the Club Virtual Championships at 10k and 10 miles (which have already happened) and the Club Virtual 5k Championship (which will be the one of the monthly handicaps...tba).  Added to those will be the Secret 7k, the Club Half Marathon Championship in August and any further 5k handicaps. See the table below. As before it's 10 points for competing and a further set of points from 25 to 1 for the first 25 runners in each gender. So plan your Secret 7 now and start following the SGP Results Tables which are now on the website.
