2016 Maryland State RRCA Grand Prix Series

Eleven running clubs from Maryland and D.C. have joined forces to organize a race series that enables individual runners as well as running clubs to compete with each other. The purpose of the Maryland RRCA Grand Prix Series is to foster a healthy sense of athletic competition among RRCA running clubs in the region, while at the same time generating a sense of cohesion among athletes in the broader running community.

Individual Competition:

Runners compete in the following categories for each gender: Open (all ages), Masters (age 40 and older), Grand Masters (age 50 and older) and age group categories, starting with 19 and younger and continuing in 5-year increments to 70 and older. To participate, an individual must be a member of an RRCA club in Maryland or the DC Road Runners Club and finish FOUR of the eleven scheduled races in 2016. Individuals earn points relative to the winning time in their age/gender category for each race. Points for an individual’s four best races are summed to determine their series standing. At the end of the year, prizes will be awarded to the top two point earners per age/gender category.

Club Competition:

There is no maximum team size, but to score in the Series each team must finish a minimum of five runners per race in at least four Series races. There must be at least two runners of each sex on the team. Teams earn points based on the summed scores of each team member. The top-scoring team in each age/gender category earns points equaling the number of scoring teams in that category (eg. If 6 teams score points in a given category, the top-scoring team gets 6 points). Each succeeding team earns one point less, with the lowest-scoring team earning one point. At the end of the year, the club with the most points will have bragging rights throughout the state!
