USATF New England 2017 Grand Prix Race Series
The USATF New England Grand Prix is a series of seven championship races through a year (generally March through October) ranging from a 5K to a marathon.
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."
SRR is USATF-NE Club #131.
Full number, including the New-England region code, is #02-131
Benefits to you
- Free USATF-NE membership: If you run at least five of the seven USATF Grand Prix Races as a USATF member (and with SRR as your member club), SRR will reimburse your USATF membership.
- Free Entry to Select Races: Each year the club chooses a few races and pays all entry fees for all club members who are also USATF members.
- Iron Runner Jackets: Each Year, USATF awards nice, custom jackets to each USATF member who has run all 7 Grand Prix Races.
The intangible benefits are supporting your club and your teammates. Running for a team in a race adds a whole new dimension to your racing. You will be surprised how much tougher you can be when you know you might score for the club. And every year a number of people who think they can't score for the club will be pleasantly surprised to find that they can. Remember, teams are scored in age-group divisions (Open, 40+, 50+, 60+, 70+).
