Strider Grand Prix Explained

 

Each year St Helens Striders hosts a number of internal club competitions including the Grand Prix, Mini Prix, Summer Handicap series and Christmas Handicap race.
Prizes will be awarded at the St Helens Striders Presentation event later in the year.

Mini Prix

This competition is open to all club members.  Over the course of the year, runners must run at least one 5km, 5 mile and 10km race. You can run each distance more than once but at the end of the year you must submit your best times for each distance which will be verified by the Club.
The runner in each category (men and ladies) with the lowest aggregate time (your best race times at each distance added together) will win.

 

 

Grand Prix 

The Grand Prix is a year long event and is aimed at all runners – the competition is levelled as it requires runners to perform well over a range of distances, and as we know those who are better at the shorter distances are not always as good at the longer distances and vice versa!
Over the course of the year, runners must run at least one 5 mile, 10km, 10mile and half marathon.  Just like the Mini Prix you can run each distance more than once but at the end of the year you must submit your best times for each distance which will be verified by the Club.
The runner in each category (men and ladies) with the lowest aggregate time (your best race times at each distance added together) will win.
