Summer Grand Prix 2021

The events listed below are included in the 2021 Summer Grand Prix. The picture regarding what is and isn't able to take place is regularly changing so please keep checking this page for updates.

The first 3 races were virtual, with "pod races" where groups with a maximum of 6 runners, who are of similar pace, set off at intervals to maintain social distancing. For the remainder of the series we are likely to have to be flexible and the format of events and the whole schedule may be adapted at short notice.

Details about the scoring system and awards are given at the bottom of the page.
