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)
