Grand Prix Standings

The club runs an age-graded Grand Prix. The runner with the highest WMA age-graded road percentile in each race gets 50 points, the second highest 49 points and so on. Each runner's best four results count in the overall Grand Prix. There are separate competitions for men and women, as well as a combined competition. Ranking by percentile should ensure the men's and women's results are comparable.
