IF you don’t see your name here – and it should be – let us know at GrandPrix@gfrcrun.org
– POINTS for ONLY ONE GP RACE per MONTH are counted towards your GP year’s 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.
Grand Prix points are based on male & female Age-graded times
