Road Runners GP Calendar 2020

There were two GP events prior to lockdown and these results will still stand. These were Norton 9 miles and Pontefract 10k which were both held in March 2020. 

The following ten rounds post-lockdown will be added to these in the league tables as before. 

Pontefract AC recognises that runners aren't able to compete in their usual number of races due to the Coronavirus pandemic and mass gathering restrictions. 

In light of this, we are changing the Grand Prix programme from June onwards so that our members have the opportunity to test themselves and to compete with fellow members in a season of internal club races, as part of a healthy and safe environment for all runners. 

  • Pre lockdown - Norton 9 - Sun 1 Mar - 9 miles

  • Pre lockdown - Pontefract 10k - Sun 8 Mar - 10k

  • Round One – Wed 15 July 7pm – 5k – Pontefract Park

Your best 8 performances from all TWELVE races will be used when calculating your total points for the year. The scoring system is as follows:

 

First finisher – 10 points, Second finisher – 9 points, Third finisher – 8 points, Fourth finisher – 7 points, Fifth finisher – 6 points, Sixth finisher – 5 points, Seventh finisher – 4 points, Eighth finisher and all other finishers – 3 points.

 

You will need to be a paid-up club member to be eligible for winning your league. Other runners who may not have registered yet will be ‘pencilled in’ so that their scores aren’t confirmed until their payment has been received. Another incentive for membership to be paid! 😊

 

In previous years there has been a Most Improved Athlete competition. This award will be judged this year by the active Run Leaders collectively and confirmed by the club’s management committee.
