Grand Prix

About the Grand Prix

The Grand Prix is a friendly competition open to all current Utica Roadrunners Club members. Members receive points for each Grand Prix race they complete based on their order of finish among club members competing in the same age group. It’s a fun way to encourage members to participate in more local races and to keep training throughout the racing season. At the end of the season, the points are tallied up and the top three runners in each age group are presented awards at the club’s annual awards banquet. In order to qualify for the 2018 Grand Prix, you must pay your annual dues by 3/31/2018.
