All of the member races of the Grand Prix benefit, directly or indirectly, a deserving community service organization. The mission of this series is to promote increased participation in associated races and, as a result, heighten public awareness of and funding for the various race-supported causes. This effort has met with tremendous success in the first four years of the Grand Prix's existence. Participation in the 7 events that were series races from 1998 through 2001 increased by 61% over that of the year before the series began. At an average of almost 500 additional participants per year, this translates into a contribution of approximately $20,000 over the four-year period for the recipient organizations. With the continued support of its sponsors, the Grand Prix will strive to improve upon this achievement in 2002.


  • It's FREE!!!
  • Participation in the 2002 Grand Prix is limited to runners only.
  • You must complete a separate registration form to enter the Grand Prix. Entry forms will be available at all of the first 6 series races. Once you enter, you are in for the year. Points will not be awarded retroactively for a race if you enter the series after the date of that race.
  • Scheduled races & race dates are subject to change. Reasonable efforts will be made to notify series entrants if & when such changes occur. Grand Prix officials do not assume responsibility for date changes or cancellations of affiliate races.
  • Your final score will be the total points for your best 6 races. There is no minimum number of series races in which you must enter to be included in the final standings.
  • In the event of a tie score among the top finishers at the end of the series, the place of finish will be determined by the runner who has accumulated the most points for all races run (not just points for the top 6 races).
  • Guidelines issued by the West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission limit the type of awards that students may accept to plaques, trophies, certificates, etc. To protect the status of student athletes, all entrants who are enrolled in grades 6 through 12 during the year will automatically be entered into the Scholastic Division and will be ineligible to receive any series competition award of monetary value. Age points will not be awarded to entrants in the Scholastic Division.


  • All entrants in the Open and Scholastic Divisions who have entered and completed a minimum of 6 Grand Prix 2002 races will be eligible to win 1 of 5 gift certificates valued at $100 apiece. Winners will be selected by a random drawing.
  • Individuals in the Open and Scholastic Divisions who complete 8 out of the 10 races will receive a commemorative award at the end of the year.
  • Competition awards, recognition awards and random prizes will be presented at a recaption hasted by the Mon General Hospital & Hazel Ruby MbQuain Conference Center, tentatively scheduled for 6pm, December 18, 2002.


  • The top 15 male and female finishers will receive championship awards at the end of the year.
  • The top 4 male & female winners will receive the following cash awards: 1st $200; 2nd $150; 3rd $100; 4th $50.


  • The top 5 male and female finishers will receive championship awards at the end of the year.
  • Finish Points = Your percentile place of finish. For example, if you win a race you would receive 100 points. If you finish in the middl e of the pack, you would receive 50 points, etc. Percentiles will be rounded up to the nearest whole number for each race.
  • Bonus Points = You will receive 3 points per race if you are a member of the Morgantown Roadrunners/West Virginia Track Club. You must become a club member before you will be awarded points for a race.
  • FOR OPEN DIVISION ENTRANTS ONLY = Age Points: You will receive 1 point for each year your age (as of 1/1/02) is over or under age 28.

An Example A race has 150 finishers - Runner A is 28 years old, finishes in 11th place, and is not a WVTC member. Runner B is 53 years old, finishes in 53rd place and is a WVTC member. Points for this race are calculated as follows:

  A B
Finish Points 93 65
Age Points 0 25
Membership Points 0 3
    Total 93 93
It's a tie! A and B will have to duel it out in the next race!
