Revision to the Grand Prix series 2011. Note update re: Shakespeare Half below.
Please have a read of the revised document (PDF) and note:
1 / We have decided to change the scoring system. First home will still score 30 points, each following member scoring one point less for the first ten members to finish, but thereafter EVERY finishing member will score 20 points. This means that the minimum that can be scored for participating in a GP event is now 20 points (with the opportunity to score bonus points as before
The Shakespeare Half Marathon is now FULL. We have found the nearest like for like half marathon and are replacing it with the Lichfield Marathon on Sunday 1st May. I believe this has an entry capacity of 2500 runners and is being organised by the same guys who organise Fradley, so it should be a fine event.
UPDATE: GP 2011 Update on Lichfield Half Marathon / Shakespeare Half Marathon:
As previously announced, the Lichfield Half Marathon on Sunday 1st May has replaced the Shakespeare Half Marathon on the GP owing to the fact that the Stratford Shakespeare Half is already closed to entries. However, a few people have already entered Stratford in the expectation that it would be on the GP (as it has in previous years) so as a one-off, we are going to amalgamate the results for these two events in calculating points for the GP. ie. somebody racing 1.45 at Lichfield will score more points than somebody racing 1.50 at Stratford, but both will count on the GP for this race (Race No.4). However, should you be racing both of these events, your time in the first event (Lichfield) will be the one that counts. PB points will score, but as Lichfield is a first-time run race, beating last years time for Stratford will not gain extra points.
3/ Please note that entries are now being accepted online for Ashby 20 (13 March), DK10km (Wed 4th May), Lichfield 1/2 marathon (1st May), Black Country 1/2 marathon (2 July) and Frampton 10km (11th July). Some of these, like Frampton, fill really quickly so please enter as early as you can
4/ There was an error on the prize information in the last version. This has been ammended.
Any questions please see me on club night or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
