Anyone can take part in the Grand Prix Series; members of clubs affiliated to Athletics Norfolk, members of clubs not affiliated to Athletics Norfolk, unattached runners - all are welcome. You don't even need to live in Norfolk - just enter the Grand Prix races in the normal way and then look out for your name in the Series standings ... 

All ages are taken as at 31 December with masters in five year age groups from 40 to 70+.

We have also introduced a new junior GP age group for those aged 15 & 16 on race day for distances up to & including 10k.

At every Grand Prix race the winner in each GP age group scores 100 points, second place scores 99 points and so on.

The final standings will aggregate your best seven performances from any of the eleven Grand Prix races (best four from seven for juniors) in this year's Series.

If you don't manage to complete the minimum of seven races (minimum of four for juniors) you will still count in the final standings but clearly it's a good idea to do as many as possible.

At the end of each season the Series awards will be presented at the Night of Celebrations when the Norfolk Road Runners of the Year and the winners of the Norfolk Postal Marathon will also be announced.
