SE FITNESS GRAND PRIX – THE RULES!

The SE Fitness Grand Prix runs from September 2018 to July 2019 and is open to everyone at SE Fitness.

SCORING SYSTEM

  • The Grand Prix events are at the bottom of the page.  There are 15 in total to choose from including 5K, 10K and half marathon but only your best 5 count.
  • You enter as many as you like, share your times with me via notice board or message and I work out the points.
  • 5 points for best time, 4 for second, 3 for third and so on.  Women and men calculated separately.
  • Look out for the Grand Slam events:  Birmingham and Palma Half, Time Challenge in Spring and Great Midlands Fun Run.  10 points on Grand Slam events, 9 for second, 8 for third, etc.
  • Everyone who sends in a time for an event gets at least 1 point.
  • Pick up 5 extra points by running further than ever before.  So, for example, if you’ve never raced as far as 10K before get 5 extra points the first time you do it.  Likewise for your first half marathon.  Let me know it’s your furthest ever race when you send in your time.
  • Pick up 2 extra points for a Season’s best.  There are a few 5K events, several 10K events and two half marathons in the Grand Prix.  If you run two of the same distance in a season and the second one is faster then claim 2 extra points with your time for Season’s Best (SB).
  • Pick up 2 extra points for a Personal best.  On any event if you run it faster than you ever have before eg it’s your fastest ever 10K or your fastest ever Fun Run claim 2 extra points with your time for Personal Best (PB).  You can only claim PB or SB on any one race not both!
  • Only current members qualify to win.

TIPS

  • Some races do not have as many SE Fitness entrants as others.  These are a great way to pick up points!
  • Improving your speed over a season helps to earn points because you can win 2 extra points for a season’s best.
  • Look out for Grand Slam events with 10 points available.

PROGRESS

SE Fitness will update the Grand Prix points after each race and publish the current standings except for the last races of the season.  Winners are announced at the Summer Party!
