WCRC partially sponsors member participation in the USATF-NE Grand Prix Series. The club reimburses race registration fees for select “away game” races that are part of the series for club members who run for WCRC teams. The USATF-NE Grand Prix has team categories for both men and women in the open, masters, seniors, and veterans divisions. WCRC members traveling to these races usually get together to arrange carpooling, etc.
Since these are official USATF events, you must register with USATF-NE as a member of club #161 (the Winner’s Circle RC) in order to participate on a WCRC team. For more info on USATF-NE membership see: http://www.usatfne.org
If you are interested in participating on a WCRC team for the USATF-NE Grand Prix Series, contact WCRC team coordinators John Webber at firstname.lastname@example.org or Laurie Gaudreau at email@example.com.
USATF-NE Competition Reimbursement Program for 2013
In 2013, WCRC will reimburse the race entry fee for any member who runs for WCRC in any of the following three USATF-NE Road Racing Grand Prix Series races: the Jones 10 Miler in Amherst MA, the Carver Cranberry 5 Mile in Carver MA and the Nahant 30K in Nahant MA. Please pre-register for races so you do not have to ask the club to reimburse an elevated race day entry fee.
New in 2013, WCRC will also reimburse the USATF-NE membership fee for any WCRC member who runs for WCRC in at least three races within the USATF-NE Road Racing Grand Prix Series , the USATF-NE Cross County Grand Prix Series, or the USATF-NE Mountain Circuit.
In order to qualify for the above reimbursements, you do not need to be a scoring member of a WCRC team. However you must be registered with USATF-NE as a member of club #161 (the Winner’s Circle RC) at the time of the race, and you must indicate WCRC as your USATF club affiliation when registering for each race.
