A brand new challenge  - EITHER LOGIN TO ENTER

Or follow this link to the Entry Form Page

 

In an effort to open up the Grand Prix and get more of members involved in the race for the Trophy, the competition period commenced on 1st May 2022 and end on the last weekend in November and be for a period of 7 months.  

NOTE: This will allow time at the end of the year for points verification prior to the end of year Awards Evening.  Club Grand Prix standings shall be reviewed at each committee meeting to ensure fair competition.

Rules:

The reduced competition year will run from the 1st May 2022 for a 7 month period.

Any race you enter, as a Plymouth Coaster as a first claim club, up to Ultra distance, can count.  Points (1 point for each Km of the event) will be awarded based on distance raced, not on your relative position to others.

Equivalent points will also be awarded for volunteering at races.

For the activity to count the athlete / volunteer must enter via the Plymouth Coasters website to the committee know you’ve raced (see Note 1 below), and to have raced as Plymouth Coaster (see also Note 2 below).   

Points for all races up to and including Marathon /Ultra distance will be awarded based on the rounded down distance in km of the event.  

Volunteering at Races attracts same points as for the race distance as the committee recognise that additional effort and time that you have given up.

The participating athlete  / volunteer should make every effort to wear Plymouth Coaster’s apparel.

We will make the points total available at convenient intervals during the year so you can see how you’re doing against your club mates / spot any missed races.

Lastly, but by no means least, please use social media, face to face conversations etc to share what races you’ve entered so that we can join you / car share / story share and please take some photos for sharing on the website.  

 Note 1: Races include any ParkRun or Trust 10K events which aren’t strictly races but…

Note 2: You may, of course, enter races and run for “other” clubs (yes there are some!) but if you enter as a team member of that club, it won’t count for the Plymouth Coasters Grand Prix.
