COMPETITORS RULES AND REGULATIONS
1. The Grand Prix series is open to all runners who are paid up members of a running club that is affiliated to the Cornwall A.A.A.
2. To qualify for a series award, a competitor must complete the minimum number of races as determined by the committee each year. Of this number, at least two races must be of 10 miles or more.
3. In the Open categories, each competitor will be awarded 200 points, diminishing in relation to their finishing position in the race, (100 points diminishing in the Veteran and Team categories).
4. Grand Prix series prizes will be awarded to the top three in every category. In the event of a tie, there will be no “count back” rule used, instead a “joint” 1st, 2nd, or 3rd award presented.
5. All competitors are advised to check that his or her points have been allocated correctly on a regular basis. Any errors will only be amended in the two most recent races. Anyone finding an error must report it to their own clubs representative, who will then deal with it on your behalf. Under no circumstances should you contact the G.P. controllers direct.
6. A runners age on the 1st of January each year will determine that runners age category in the G.P. series for the duration of the year, Awards in age categories at races will be determined by the runners age on race day (as normal).
7. Grand Prix club runners must wear their club vests in GP events. Failure to do so will result in their disqualification from the GP results for that race and therefore zero points. (In accordance with UKA rules they will also be disqualified from all team results.) 8. Any runner who a enters a GP race via their own clubs “bulk entry system” ( and has not therefore completed a “signed” entry form for that race ), is deemed to have accepted and agreed to that race organisers responsibilities regarding Data Protection and a Declaration regarding their own personal health and safety.
Referring to the Grand Prix Series results ONLY, and NOT ‘race day’ results, all competitors shall remain in the same age group category that they were in on January 1st, for the duration of the year.
To enable you to check that you have been allocated the correct number of points by the GP results compilers after each race that you have taken part in, a separate set of results will now be produced for each race dated ‘As at 1st Jan.’ Because the computer has in fact ‘back-dated’ the results to January 1st, any competitor who has moved into a new age group since their previous race, will still be shown in the category that they started the year in, ie. on 1st Jan.
The ‘As at 1st Jan’ results will therefore, make it straightforward and simple for you to check that your points are correct, which would not be possible to do by using the actual ‘race day’ results, because of anyone having had a birthday and possibly changing their category.
