USATF Grand Prix Race Series 2008

News Flash!
It may be snowing. It may be raining. The blood of a Communist revolution may be flowing through the streets. The Somerville Road Runners will field Grand prix teams, no matter what!

The USATF New England Grand Prix is a series of 7 championship races through a year (generally March through October) ranging from 5K to the marathon.

Club teams and individual runners score points in each race during the season (10 individual places, and as many places as there are scoring teams). The primary emphasis from year one (now approaching 20) is on USATF New England club participation, and scoring includes divisions for open, age 40+, and age 50+ teams. Individual scoring is kept in four divisions for both men and women; open, age 40-49, age 50-59, and age 60+, and for men age 70+. Races enjoy increased participation as a result of their championship status.

The series races' prize money usually emphasizes team over individual money, team money being limited to USATF-NE clubs. Other awards may also be limited to NE competitors.

Additionally, special awards - jackets - go to individual runners who complete all seven of the USATF-NE championship events. .

Scoring team runners, Individual scoring runners, and "Ironrunners" must be USATF members. There are no other fees beyond the race entry fees. Many clubs use the series as part of their own internal club grand prix, and they may also subsidize entry fees if they use it as a club "race of the month."
