Grand Prix – 2016

 ML Large 345

The Grand Prix Series is intended as an added incentive to run in club races and have some fun at the same time.

The GP uses the WAVA (see below) age grading system and has races over different distances and terrain, it is the true leveler of ability – being just the fastest does not win the GP!

Awards will be given to top 3 males and females, the trophy to the overall winner.

Good luck and happy running, Martin.

What is WAVA?

“Basically, Age-Graded Scoring allows all individuals within a race to be “scored” against each other. That is done by first comparing the individual’s finish time at that particular race distance to an “ideal” or best time (not necessarily the “world record”) achievable for that individual’s age and gender.” For a full explanation (from the web) click here

“WAVA has also developed the following broad “Achievement Levels” for use with Age-Graded Scoring. A score within each range indicates the level of performance achieved by an athlete.

  • 100% = Approximate World Record Level
  • 90-99% = World Class
  • 80-89% = National Class
  • 70-79% = Regional Class
  • 60-69% = Local Class”
