ABOUT THE SERIES

  • The 2007 MAGP consists of two different race series: Ten 5Ks make up the SPRINT SERIES and ten longer events make up the ENDURANCE SERIES. Each series is open to runners in the listed races. Just run a race and youíre automatically entered in the series. You may participate in both MAGP series!
  • 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 in each series. Each series is scored independently. You must run 6 of a series races to be eligible for year-end awards for that series.
  • 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 at the end of the year will be ineligible to receive any series competition award of monetary value.

THE GRAND PRIX MISSION

The object of the series is to promote increased participation in member races and, as a result, heighten the awareness of and funding for various race-supported causes. With continued support of area runners and event sponsors the Grand Prix strives to continue our success.

AWARDS

  • Individuals who complete 8 out of the 10 races in either series will receive a commemorative award at the end of the year.
  • The top 10 male and female finishers in each series will receive championship awards at the end of the year.
  • The male and female overall winners in each series will receive free registration at the respective 2008 MAGP events.
  • Awards will be given for the best age-graded performances (male/female) at the 5K, 10K, and half marathon distances.

THE POINT SYSTEM

Everything you ever wanted to know about Age Grading Running Races is here: http://www.eliteracingsystems.com/2007_roadraces_results/agegrade.html. Use the Age Grading Race Calculator.

  • 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 number for display purposes, but fractions of points will be used to determine the standings.

    EXAMPLE
    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
    Result: Itís a tie.
