Age-graded time is done for the year of racer’s age, rather than by the 10-year age division the runner is in, calculated on WAVA website.

If you ran this race but don’t see your name here, please contact Tom Abbott or Eric Jacobsen by Feb. 15th at grandprix@gfrcrun.org
(Because this does happen — members not noticed in the results — the above point totals
therefore have to be considered tentative for 2 weeks.)

WAVA percentiles: 60-69.9 = competitive locally, 70-79.9 = competitive regionally; 80-89.9 = competitive nationally;

POINTS for ONLY ONE GP RACE per MONTH are counted towards your total; if you run a marathon, half-m, or ultra, then the points for any one of those are to be used IN PLACE of that month’s GP race points – unless that race’s points are higher.

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 “ompetitive 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)
