Blyth Running Club Grand Prix 2013

[Mon 24th Sep] 



The format for the 2013 Grand Prix is a 12 race season with four races in each of three categories – up to 10km, up to 10 miles and above 10 miles.  Each entrant to the Grand Prix will count their best two results from each category.

These are the only rules for the club Grand Prix.

Members of Blyth Running Club are required to comply with all ‘local rules’ set by the organiser of each event.  (Note that these rules will often include age limits, which may result in some of the younger club members being unable to participate in some races).

Members are also expected to comply with good etiquette at all times and specifically must comply with all instructions from race organisers and marshals, must do nothing to adversely affect the good name of Blyth Running Club and should do nothing to either favour or adversely affect the performance of other Grand Prix competitors during races.

Season Composition

The races for the 2013 season are shown on the attached sheet.  These have been selected by the BRC Grand Prix Working Party and any feedback after events can usefully be given to any member of this group (but preferably by e-mail or in writing if you want it to be remembered).

At the time of announcement, the exact dates for most races are still to be confirmed.  These will be publicised when known.  In the event of any of the announced races being either cancelled or clashing with another race on the list, the Working Party reserves the right to select an alternative race where practical and both time and the calendar allowing.
