RRRC Grand Prix Competition 2023

2023 Richmond, VA 23230 US


The Grand Prix is Richmond Road Runners Club's free-running competition for RRRC members that encourages and rewards speed, participation, and volunteerism. The Grand Prix is a great way to keep your motivation up throughout the year and rewards you at the end for completing the challenge.

This program rewards you for activities you are already doing -- running and volunteering. Generally, to become a Grand Prix Finalist, you must run in 5 club races, volunteer at one club race, and one contract race. The number of races required varies for our Grand Master runners.

Updated rules for 2023 rules are here.

You must be an RRRC member to compete in the Grand Prix.

The 2022 Grand Prix year is December 31, 2022, to December 30, 2023, but you must Sign Up to be a Grand Prix competitor by February 12, 2022, to earn points to become a 2023 Grand Prix Finalist.

Grand Prix 2023

We anticipate that COVID-19 will continue to impact RRRC races into 2023. We hope to host all of our club races in person. Still, each race will have a virtual option if local or state directives require limits on participation or continue to recommend wearing masks and social distancing. For example, if a 2023 Grand Prix club race cannot be held in person, RRRC will host a virtual race. 
RRRC will have the Grand Prix (GP) Competition and Iron Runner Competition in 2023. If we miss more than three in-person GP club races, we will cancel the Iron Runner Competition. If we miss more than six in-person GP club races, we will cancel the GP Competition. 

Participation in a virtual club race will earn 1 GP point for finishing the race, but no placement points will be awarded because the times are self-reported. Therefore, you must self-report your race completion time within the time allotted by the race, or you will not get the point. 
We hope to have contract events in 2022 to allow volunteers to meet the contract race volunteer requirement for GP Finalist and Iron Runner. However, if we don't secure enough contract races to provide volunteer opportunities, there may impact on the GP and Iron Runner Competitions.

If you have any questions about these changes, please email grandprix@rrrc.org.
