658 Tot

– 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.
– 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!

Notes: John Joyce was faster than last year here by 55 seconds, Bob Cargill by 28 seconds, Darlene Dearden was 6th of 90 in her age group. Others faster too, despite the wind. Watch this page.

“FT” means Faster Than (the year shown at this race);  “FTLY” means Faster Than Last year at this race.

GP rules say that points can be waived for someone if he or she requests it. This is done sometimes so that others’ points will be raised.

Natick’s 9th Annual Jingle Bell Run

Sunday, December 2, 2018, 10 a.m., Brown School, Natick; flat course through neighborhood, only off-and-on faint drizzle, 40-45 degrees, no wind, slightly less than 2 mi – and race officials have since declared that they made the course short – to 1.85 miles – because of that long, road-wide puddle at the original start. So essentially it was a 3K!  I’ve adjusted the paces accordingly (it’s been a 30-50 seconds difference for everyone); long, generous raffle, age group awards 1 deep (mug with kisses)

Tough Ten 10-Miler

November 25, 2018, 9 a.m., start and finish in a Marlboro CC parking lot across road from where we had our banquet 6 years ago. VERY hilly in stretches, a steep one for most of Mile 1, 2-3 in miles 4-5, and especially the “super longie” from Mile 7.5 to Mile 8.9? Water stops, mile splits called out for first few miles (incl 5K) and corner guides aplenty. Weather: only at times a very faint drizzle, 45 or so degrees, no wind. Postrace refreshments: choc chip cookies, bananas, Clif bars, GU Gels, clementines. Race put on by Highland City Striders – low key, but very well organized.

Any Half in October

This section has had evolving results and points during October, as members have reported their half marathons to our webpage’s General October half marathon results (they’ve had to do this to get points on this page). Although, normally, within GP-selected races we do look for, list, and point-award every member, for the halfs in October we have NOT chased down members’ half marathon times all over the state, New England and the Continental U.S.). Grand Prix points are awarded on THIS page, and have been changing week to week as new results have come in. These results we deem to be final as of November 9, except for any Ashland half (cancelled) pre-regitrants who would be eligible for their 15 GP points. …………………………………………….AGE…Age-grd’d Time…GP pts

Jack’s Abby 5K, October 13, 2018, Framingham, MA

At 10:13 a.m. “10 sharp” (ha-ha), course – with 17 turns – was quite similar to the Purple Passion 5K just across Bishop St. 3 weeks ago (one medium upgrade) – and same, very slightly-short length (IF you ran the tangents on each curve and corner). If your 3rd mile was slower than the first two, it was maybe because it INCLUDED that longish, DOGLEG HILL. Good racing conditions: 50’s, only light drizzle.

“FTLY” means Faster Than Last Year here at this race.
Notes: Phyllis hadn’t raced a 5K since Thanksgiving. Four of us who had also run that hot & humid Labor Day 5K were 1 1/2 to 2 minutes FASTER on this perfect weather day (and the courses had exact same length and degree of hills). This year’s course was slightly longer than last year’s (3.09 miles to 3.06) due to the turn on Loker Street (off Hartford St) rather than a block earlier on C Street. Ed Stoll, Bob Cargill, Mike Bower, Lisa and 13-year-old son Sam Burgess (who was 1st Overall!) had all run the Reach the Beach relay a week earlier (legs totalling at least a half-marathon distance apiece). And although John Joyce didn’t get a FTLY, his time was only :05 off last year here – so a FTLY age-graded!
Katie Scafaldi is the former Katie Sullivan (married recently!). Greg and Nicole Rotatori joined the GFRC just this month.
