The Grand Prix proved to be a tremendous success in its first two years of existence. An average of over 700 more runners ran in series events in 1998 and 1999 than in 1997 (an increase of 63%) and contributed an additional sum of approximately $14,000 for race-supported recipient organizations.


  • It's FREE!!!
  • Participation in the 2000 Grand Prix is limited to runners only.
  • You must register separately for entrance to the Grand Prix. Entry forms will be available at the information table at any one of the first 11 series races. Once you enter, you are in for the year. Points will not be awarded retroactively for a race if you enter after you run that event.
  • Your final score will be the total points for your best 7 races. You must enter and finish a minimum of 5 races in the series to be included in the final standings.
  • The top 15 male and female series finishers will receive championship awards at the end of the year.
  • The overall male & female winners will receive Whitetail Cycle & Fitness gift certificates valued at $225 apiece.
  • In the event of a tie score among the top 15 finishers at the end of the series, the place of finish will be determined by the runner who has accumulated the most points for all races run (not just the points for the top 7 races).
  • Individuals who complete 10 out of the 15 races will receive a commemorative award at the end of the year.
  • All entrants who have entered and completed a minimum of 7 Grand Prix 2000 races will be eligible to win 1 of 2 Whitetail Cycle & Fitness gift certificates valued at $250 apiece. Winners will be selected by a random drawing at year end.
  • Scheduled races and race dates are subject to change. Reasonable efforts will be made to notify series entrants if and when such changes occur. Grand Prix officials do not assume responsibility for cancellation of individual member races.
The Point System
  • Finish Points = Your percentile place of finish. For example, if you win a race you would receive 100 points. If you finish in the middle of the pack, you would receive 50 points, etc. Percentiles will be rounded up to the nearest whole number for each race.
  • Age Points = You will receive 1 point for each year your age is over or under age 28.
  • Bonus Points = You will receive 3 points per race if you are a member of the Morgantown Roadrunners/West Virginia Track Club. You must become a club member before you will be awarded points for a race.

An Example A race has 150 finishers - Runner A is 28 years old, finishes in 11th place, and is not a WVTC member. Runner B is 53 years old, finishes in 53rd place and is a WVTC member. Points for this race are calculated as follows:

  A B
Finish Points 93 65
Age Points 0 25
Membership Points 0 3
    Total 93 93
It's a tie! A and B will have to duel it out in the next race!
