WCRC Grand Prix Individual & Intra-Club Team Competition

The WCRC Grand Prix Series is an intra-club competition “open” to all WCRC members. There is no cost to participate in the Grand Prix Series, but of course you need to register/pay for each race in which you intend to participate.

We are pleased to offer the WCRC Individual and Intra-Club Team Competition for the 2019 Grand Prix Racing Series. The goal is to encourage team spirit and to promote our club within the local community through a fun intra-club competition.

The Team Competition is open to any 3+  person team selected by the Grand Prix Director. Members who participate in the Individual and Intra-Club Team Grand Prix race each month are awarded points based on their order of finish among WCRC members. Points are totaled and awards are presented to the top participants in each group at our annual banquet.

Team & Individuals Rules

  • Signing up for the Grand Prix means you are agreeing to run as an “Individual” as well as a “Team” member.
  • Must pre-register through the WCRC web site before Saturday April 6, 2019.
  • Teams will consist of 3+ members TBD after sign-ups.
  • You must be a current member of WCRC and wear your WCRC singlet, shirt or jacket at all Grand Prix races to show your WC pride and to promote our club within the local community.
  • Chip time will be used to determine finishing places.
  • Participants can only compete for one team and may not be registered for the race under another club’s name.
  • Must participate in 5 of the 8 Grand Prix selected races (includes one of the two races on September 22) to be considered for an award.
  • The top three “Individuals” point scorers in each division receive awards as well as the top three “Teams”.

Team Scoring

  • Team placing for races is the same as a cross-country team scoring system, i.e. Based on placing relative to the other WCRC team runners with low score winning!
  • The first place team in each division will receive points equal to the number of teams.. Example: 4 teams: first place team gets 4 points, second 3, third 2, fourth 1, Not enough to field a team will receive 0.
  • Each team will receive an extra point per team member participating in each event.
  • In the event of a tie at the end of the series, tie will be broken by the team with the best attendance.

Individual Scoring

  • Individual competition will be scored for both men and women in the following age divisions: Open, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+.
  • Points are awarded to all individuals relative to finishing positions. If there are 5 individuals in your division, the first place runner will receive 5 points, 2nd gets 4 points and so on.

WCRC Grand Prix Race Director Mary Hudon will be generating this year’s results, using the club’s highly sophisticated system for scoring each race, which I am sure she would be happy to explain to you over a beverage at the next WCRC meeting.  2019 teams will be recognized with prizes of undisclosed monetary value and will have their names engraved on the plaque of honor on display upstairs at the Winner’s Circle.
