Road Running “Grand Prix” 2023

The “Grand Prix” – What is it?

It’s a series of races taking place from January through to the end of September that are selected to challenge you. It’s an opportunity to run in different locations (mostly local) with your Bexley AC team mates. Prizes will be awarded at the 2023 Presentation Night.

Thank you to all who took part in 2022 Grand Prix, helping to promote our Club and leave a good impression of Bexley AC amongst the wider running community.

Congratulations to our 2022 winners:

  • Christina Fleetwood
  • Simon Wells

Who can enter?

Any Bexley AC Road Runner. We will calculate our points system based on the related group you run in, so there’s every chance for people to run in the same event as those in other groups and not be worried about ability.

When is it?

There is roughly one race/event per month.

What distance are the races?

They differ. In order to challenge you and to make this cater for all Road Runners the distances vary between parkrun (5km) right up to a marathon (26.2 miles), giving a good range of choice.

Do I need to enter every event?

No. However, we do ask that to qualify you compete in a minimum of 5 events.

How is the scoring calculated?

Anyone participating (whilst wearing a Club vest and in their own name) will receive a minimum of 1 point.

Divisions set based on your coaching group, so everyone has a fair chance in each event. 10 points will go to the first place, 9 points to second place, etc.

If chip timing is provided, this will be used for calculating points – otherwise it will be gun time race position.
