This series of 5 trail races, held every Tuesday evening between June 29 and July 27, benefits Kayhi’s XC team. Come out to Ward Lake every week to get in a run and support our high school athletes! All races begin at the main Ward Lake beach at 6pm. The route and distance will change each week. See below for rough plans for the series, but please know that routes are subject to change.
What is a Grand Prix?
A Grand Prix is a series of races, in which runners compete for points throughout the series, rather than placement in one single race. The top three male and female, plus the top U18 male and female point earners, will win prizes (to be awarded at the completion of the series). You get points for placement in the race, plus points for just showing up! Bonus points available. See below for more information on the point system and prizes.
Points are awarded to the first 20 men and women in each race.
Placement points for each race are as follows:
But you don't just earn points for your placement in the race! Other ways to earn points include:
Prizes awarded to top three male and female point earners, and top U18 male and female point earners. Prizes include: Bigfoot Pottery pieces made by Leif Sivertsen for 1st-3rd places, plus free entry in any 2021/2022 KRC race for 1st place point holders.
