FTLY = Faster Than Last Year – at THIS race.

Age-graded time is done for the exact year (with 2 decimal positions) of racer’s age, rather than by the 10-year age division the runner is in, calculated on WMA website, choose correct distance (e.g., “5 mile road” if a road, not track, race); fill in other appropriate fields, separating hours, minutes and seconds by colons; 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 this way!
– 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 pts are higher.
Did We Miss You?
If you ran this race but don’t see your name here, please contact Tom or Eric (GrandPrix@gfrcrun.org) by Aug. 10, the date beyond which GP points will not be awarded (contact us at grandprix [at] gfrcrun.com) Because this does happen — members not noticed in the results — the above point totals usually have to be considered tentative for the next week.
