A Series of Summer evening Road Races
March1: We are planning to go ahead this year with the East Midland Grand Prix series of mid-week road races, starting towards the end of May and finishing in July. We are talking to chip-timing systems with a view to holding waves starts, with restricted fields. The additional expense of chip timing and wave starts is likely to result in higher entry fees for this year only. We will have more information at the end of March.
This race series consists of 8 road races, all on summer evenings.
Each runner’s finishing position is calculated by age category, aggregated, and carried forward to the next race in the series. Only the best 5 results are counted. Prizes are awarded, by the promoting Club on each race night, and for the series after the final race, covering age categories and teams. You can register for all eight road races in one go (£60 for England Athletics affiliated Members and £70 for unaffiliated runners) when you enter the first race at Silverstone. This offer closes on 1 May 2020. Pre-entries online only.
Race entry fees (to be reviewed)
- Silverstone: online affiliated/unaffiliated £13/£15; on the night £15/17
- Weedon: £8/£10 and £11/£13
- All other races: £9/£11 and £12/£14
Series Team results: Each event organizer can determine his/her prize structure, including team awards. However, for the Grand Prix Series, teams (Men/Vet Men – 4 to score, and Women/Vet Women – 3 to score) must consist of first-claim members of the same England Athletics affiliated club.
More details can be obtained from Mick Bromilow.
All races start at 7:45pm.
Dates for the 2020 Series (links to online entries will be added when known).
