384 tot (444 last year)

*an unofficial “high five”, as colorful mugs went only to 1st, 2nd & 3rd places in age groups

“It’s about those few moments of glory after the end of the race, where the world around you is spinning and walking in a straight line is impossible–that moment when you can’t help but smile, because even though you may not have won or beaten anyone else, you know that you gave absolutely everything you possibly could into that race and there’s nothing that you could have done better.” – Laura Weisberger

“ftly” means faster than last year at this race

Age-graded time is done for the actual year of a racer’s age, rather than just by the 10-year age division the runner is in.

WAVA% 60-69.99 is locally competitive, 70-79.99 regionally competitve, 80 & above nationally competitive (“competitive” meaning that there would be a reasonable chance at placing 1st-3rd, 5th, or at least would be a threat to do so).

 If you ran this race but don’t see your name here, please contact Eric or Tom by January 1,

(Because this does happen — members not noticed in the results — the above point totals have to be considered tentative until well after the newsletter is out).

7th ANNUAL NATICK JINGLE BELL RUN (2-Miler)

2016-17 GFRC Grand Prix – Series XXIX Race #15 (can use only one per month for pts, but both count for Race Count if you do both in a month)

Brown School, Natick, MA, ~10:05 a.m. DJ music, chip-timed fore ‘n aft; Hot choc, bars, chowder

~40 degrees, almost no wind, sunny; postrace: bars, bananas, long, generous RAFFLE

[age-graded time and WAVA% based on distance of ~1.90 miles. Some had even shorter, some longer. Makes up for some of those “long” races!] Since race location within 5 miles of Framingham’s downtown, a “uniform point” (+1) given to those wearing club shirt, jacket, etc.

FTLY = Faster Than Last Year at this race

YOU CAN EARN POINTS ONLY ONCE PER MONTH (IF 2 RACES, THE HIGHER POINTS).

IF A MARATHON’S 22 POINTS OR A HALF’S 18 POINTS HIGHER THAN YOUR HIGHEST IN ANY GP RACE THAT MONTH, THEN THOSE POINTS WILL BE ADDED FOR MONTH.

OR, FOR TWO MONTHS IN THE SERIES, YOU CAN SKIP A GP RACE AND SUBSTITUTE A MARATHON’S 22 POINTS. OR FOR 3 DIFFERENT MONTHS, A HALF’S 18 POINTS.

Age-graded time is done for the actual year of a racer’s age, rather than just by the 10-year age division the runner is in.

WAVA% is World Association of Veteran Athletes, and a value of 60-69.99 percent = “competitive locally,” 70-79.99 competitive regionally

 If you ran this race but don’t see your name here, please contact Eric or Tom by Dec 21. (Because this does happen — members not noticed in the results — the above point totals have to be considered tentative until well after the newsletter is out)

Ages are calculated to one one-hundredth because there is often such a closeness in age-graded times that a finer age-graded computation than 2-digit ages is more accurate. Plus, you get a faster age-graded time and higher WAVA% this way!

If you do not see your name or correct time here, please let us (TomAbbott8 “at” gmail.com or Eric Jacobsen (Grandprix “at” GFRCRUN.org) before Dec. 15, beyond which we cannot change GP points.
