The events that comprise the grand prix are different lengths from 1 mile to full marathon. We have divided the state into three regions: west, middle, and east. We endeavor to have no more than one event in a particular region on the same date and time (there could be races in the morning, afternoon or evening---just not two at the same time) within a particular region of the state.
At the events that comprise our grand prix, runners are eligible to earn points by placing in the top ten finishers of their age group. The points are awarded in sixteen different age groups: 10 & under, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, and 80 & over. These are the age groups that are recognized by the grand prix series regardless of the age groups that may be utilized at a particular race.
The first place finisher in an age group earns 10 points; the second place finisher earns 9 points, etc with the tenth place finisher earning 1 point. Different length events receive a multiplier to the points awarded as follows: 1 mile to 6.2 miles (10K) award points
earned times 1, above 6.2 miles to 13.1 miles (half marathon) award points earned times 2, and above 13.1 miles award points earned times 3. In other words, a first place age group finisher in a 10K earns 10 points, a first place age group finisher in a 15K receives 20 points, and a first place age group finisher in a marathon receives 30 points.
The age group for a participant is established by the age recorded at each event that they qualify by finishing in the top ten for their age group. This will mean that some participants may accumulate points in different age groups based on their individual age and birth date.
Participants accumulate points between August 1 of one year and July 31 of the next year. During the month of August, we will have an awards ceremony to recognize the top ten point leaders in each age group for the previous twelve months. In order to qualify, a participant must have participated in at least three Run and See Tennessee Grand Prix© events. There is no maximum number of events that a participant may use to accumulate against their Grand Prix Total.
TRS publishes the individual points total for each qualifying participant and the complete results for each series event on the Total Race Solutions website (the url is http://www.totalracesolutions.com
