HMRRC offers cash awards for runners who place in its Grand Prix series. The awards go five deep in six age-group categories (29 and under; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69; 70 and up) for both men and women. Only active club members at the time of an event score points for that event. Continuing for 2023-24 additional volunteer scoring opportunity for working at a Grand Prix Event.
The Grand Prix prize structure for 2023-24 is as follows:
HMRRC events in the Grand Prix series include the following:
*** This order will realign the series with the club fall picnic along with the HMMRC organizational year of Oct 1-Sept 30.
For each event, points are awarded by place.
Only six events are used to determine overall GP point totals. So, if a runner finishes first in four events (12 points for each first), second in three event (10 points for each second), and third (8 points in one event, his/her point total is 68 (with one of the second place finishes and the third place finish being dropped from the calculation).
For 2023-24 Volunteer Scoring continues: In addition to the racing component, participants can receive 2 volunteer points for each Grand Prix race they volunteer for but do not count the race in their racing total. To be eligible for volunteer points, volunteer must complete the volunteer waiver check-in at the race and use electronic volunteer registration so we can verify membership status and compile results. Volunteer points will be added to the race totals on a quarterly basis based on race reports. So if the participant above scores in six events and volunteered in three additional Grand Prix races, they would receive 6 additional points for a total of 74.
