HRC GP 2014/15

WS Martin road runner

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

As GP uses the WAVA (see below) age grading system and has races over different distances and terrain, its the true leveler of ability!

At the end of the Grand Prix the awards will be given to top male and female.

Good luck and happy running, Martin.

  • The scoring will be done by the WAVA age grading system so that it gives a fairer chance to all.
  • The best six races will be scored from all the races you choose to do plus….
  • a bonus race which you may choose yourself, The race you choose as your bonus must notified to me before the event. Please use the form to the right.
  • A maximum of two XC races can count no more!
  • The Kevin Henry series and Suffolk Grand Prix will score you an extra 20 points per race.
  • To be in the HRC Grand Prix series you must be a paid up member and wear your club vest when racing.
  • If you have any questions email me directly – happy to help!

Only the 7 highest (6 + your bonus race) will ever count towards the final score – a runner might have more races, and the scores can still change if another GP race scores higher then an existing one. I.E Andrew Bell’s 6 races still include a XC race, his next race (with luck) will score higher.

Max of 2 XC races included unless other races scored higher – and /or total points if less then 6 races

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”
