2001 Grand Prix schedule
Without a doubt the grand prix circuit creates a lot of interest in Gulf Winds Track Club races and provides a great opportunity for competition. You must be a GWTC member on the day of the race to earn points. The 2001 schedule will have more races than any other year. You can score overall points by placing in the top ten GWTC members of your gender in any grand prix race. The points for first through tenth are: 30, 20, 17, 15, 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, and 3. You can also earn points by placing in the top eight GWTC finishers in your age group and gender. Points for age group competition are: 20, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2.
Children age 14 and under may only earn points in events of 5K or less in distance. Each runners’ “grand prix age” is determined at the beginning of the year and remains the same all year long.
