The 2018 Grand Prix is open to all GFR members. The purpose of the Grand Prix is to promote more social club running amongst members, strengthen links across the running community, and to raise the profile of LGBT sports participation at local and national running events. Our aim is to get a strong presence at many of these run, and most importantly, that we as members have fun!
Earn Points:You are awarded points for every run you take part in that’s on the race calendar. You can earn points by volunteering at races too. There is a maximum of 200 points.
Leader Board: We will keep a leader board (managed by the run secretary and captains) throughout the year and there will be prizes at our annual awards night party. Please inform Ian, Jack, or Penny if you wish to record a PB.
Prizes: Prizes will be based on the number of points earned, NOT speed.
