THE GRAND PRIX MISSION
The object of this series is to promote increased participation in member 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 eight years of the Grand Prix's existence. Participation in events that were series races from 1998 through 2005 increased by 58% 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 nearly $33,000 over the eight-year period for the recipient organizations. With the continued support of area runners and event sponsors, the Grand Prix will strive to improve upon this achievement in 2006.

We also have an Age Grading Race Calculator for you.
- Age Graded Points =
We are using the WMA age grading system. Your time will be age graded
using factors that depend upon your age and the distance of the race.
We then take the theoretical world record (for the distance, your age
& sex) and divide it by your time to get a percentage. We multiply by
100 to get an integer. Points will be rounded to the nearest whole
If a 10-year-old male runs a 10K in 42:30 (2550 seconds) his score is 1972/2550 x 100 = 77
If a 55-year-old female runs a 10K in 47:50 (2870 seconds) her score is 2219/2870 x 100 = 77
It's a tie.
