This Saturday marks the very first race of our GP series (more events to be announced soon). The brand new Tyne Bridge Harriers parkrun GP 2011 will consist of a series of 6 races held over the Summer months with the best 4 performances counting towards the final result.
All races in the series will take place at Newcastle parkrun in Exhibition Park / Town Moor on the following dates;
Sat April 2nd
Sat May 7th
Sat June 4th
Sat July 2nd
Sat August 6th
Sat September 3rd
Allocation of Points
Each competitor will receive 10 points for completing a race (up to a maximum of 40 points) and 5 bonus points will be awarded to any competitor who completes all six races.
The Grand Prix scoring system will use the parkrun ‘Age Grading’ system to determine how well a competitor has performed in each race.
Points will be allocated as follows;
5 pts > 55%
10pts > 60%
15pts > 65%
20pts > 70%
25pts > 75%
30pts > 80%
40pts > 85%
50pts > 90%
so if a competitor recorded an age grading of 77.5% they would receive 25 points.
To stop a competitor from gaining an unfair advantage, only races which place at Newcastle parkrun on the dates shown above will qualify towards the Grand Prix. Best 4 races will count.
