Grand Prix 2021

$0 Registration ends February 28, 2021 at 11:59pm EST
Description

The Grand Prix is Richmond Road Runners Club's free running competition for RRRC members that encourages and rewards speed, participation and volunteerism. This is an wonderful 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 that you are already doing -- running and volunteering. Generally, to become a Grand Prix Finalist, you must run in 5 club races, volunteer at 1 club race, and volunteer at the finish line of 1 contract race. The number of races required varies for our Grand Master runners.

Updated rules for 2021 rules are here.

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

The 2021 Grand Prix year is December 31, 2020 to December 30, 2021, but you must Sign Up to be a Grand Prix competitor by February 28, 2020 to earn points to become a 2021 Grand Prix Finalist.

Grand Prix 2021 Changes because of COVID-19

We anticipate that COVID-19 will impact RRRC races into 2021. We hope to host many of our club races in-person, but each of those races will have a virtual option if local or state directives require limits on participation or continue to recommend the wearing of masks and social distancing. If a 2021 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 2021. We will use the 2020 criteria and cancel the Iron Runner Competition if we miss more than 3 in-person GP club races. We will cancel the GP Competition if we miss more than 6 in-person GP club races. There will be no Titanium Runner recognition for 2021. 
 
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. You must self-report your race completion time within the time period allotted by the race or you will not get the point. 
 
We hope to have contract events in 2021 that will provide volunteer opportunities to meet the contract race volunteer requirement for GP Finalist and Iron Runner. If we don't secure enough contract races to provide volunteer opportunities, there may be an impact on the GP and Iron Runner Competitions.

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