Below is the list of races in the 2021-21 Road Grand Prix series. Please read this document in conjunction with the Carnegie Harriers Competition Guidelines 2019/20. and Road Grand Prix Rules for 20/21.
The list is provisional at this time until we receive confirmation that the events listed are proceeding and full information is available. The dates highlighted in yellow are based on the dates the races were held in 2019/20. They will be confirmed as soon as possible.
Should an event not proceed, or be no longer considered viable for the Grand Prix (for example due to a change of date), an equivalent alternative will be sought and substituted. Updates will be sent via email but further information will also be available on the website (www.carnegie-harriers.co.uk).
We have incorporated a variety of distances from 5K to half marathon, races organised by local clubs as well as those incorporating district or national championships. The majority are fairly local and those that are further afield are still within easy travelling distance. Some races are new to the club, whilst others are tried and tested favourites. We’ve also recognised that many of our members run at least one marathon in the year so, all in all, there should be something to suit most members.
There still appears to be a bit of confusion about the nomination of a marathon event to count towards a member’s GP points. This is how it works. If you run an organised marathon, it can count as one of your eight qualifying events for the GP. However, it will not be done automatically. You must ask for your time to be recorded for GP purposes. At the end of the year, all reported marathon times will be listed in order from fastest to slowest and points awarded accordingly.
We do hope you will make the effort to take part in at least some of the chosen events over the coming year and we look forward to seeing you at them.
Please do not hesitate to contact any members of the committee if you have any queries or feedback regarding the 2020-21 Grand Prix.
