All new for Autumn 2019! SE Fitness Grand Prix Mini Series!! Could you be the next winner?
Wanted to encourage more SE Runners (and Walkers) to join in. Less about speed and more about taking part. Hope you will use the Grand Prix to inspire you and motivate you this autumn. You might be entering your first event, taking on more than one 5K and aiming to improve or just going for something new.
The Winners will be those with the most points and will be announced at the Christmas Party. Men and Women competitions separate.
See list of events below. We have kept some of the old favourites but also added some new ones. Range of distances and type of events from 5K to ‘Any Half Marathon’ and mix of road or trail. Points also on offer for helping out / volunteering.
Come and join in and it could be you lifting the trophy at the Christmas Party!

How it works
- Separate competitions for Men and Women.
- Points awarded for every event completed. Sometimes points for time, sometimes for finishing see table below. Points for volunteering.
- Points for Personal Best eg your fastest ever. If it’s your first race at that distance it’s automatically a PB!
- Points for improvement. There are three 5K events and 3 10K events in the series. If you get faster claim points when you improve.
- The winners are those with the most points in total.
- Last event SE Fitness parkrun (C25K graduation) on 16th
- Prizes for 1st and 2nd in both categories awarded at Christmas Party 5th
Time points are awarded based on your time compared to other SE Fitness runners in the same event. Send your time to firstname.lastname@example.org or message 07788 628755 after the event and I’ll work out the points. Men and Women points awarded separately.
- 5 points for the fastest
- 4 points for second fastest
- 3 points for third
- 2 points for finishing.
You can claim 5 points for a personal best (PB) if it’s your fastest ever run at that distance. If it’s your first race at that distance it is automatically a PB! You have to claim your points when you submit your time.
In our mini-series there are three 5K events and three 10K events. If you do two events and your second one is quicker claim 3 ‘improvement’ points with your time. You can claim 3 points each time you improve.
