In an attempt to encourage more members to participate in the Hill Running Grand Prix events, for 2019 the committee agreed to increase the overall number of races in the Grand Prix and to include all six Scottish Hill Running Championship events. This means that for 2019 there will be a total of 17 races in the Hill Running Grand Prix. In the event of any of the designated events not proceeding, an equivalent alternative will be substituted.
The selection of races has been carefully considered to tempt more of you to try out hill running. We have deliberately chosen mainly shorter races in the first few months of the year to give you an opportunity to gain experience and increase your confidence in running in the hills.
The Grand Prix series is open to all members, regardless of ability. We would encourage people to take part in the races and enjoy a day out in the company of other club members.
To qualify as a completer at the end of the year members must complete 7 races, of which one must be a medium race and another a long race (or medium race of at least 9 miles). Remember you need to complete at least one medium race to qualify for the ARC.
We hope that these changes will make it easier for members to fit in the required number of races. As in previous years, club vests must be worn for points to be awarded.
Please do not hesitate to speak to any of the committee if you have queries about the Grand Prix or send an email to [email protected].
