Cambridge Harriers Road Running Grand Prix
Dear road runners,
The Big Half Marathon on Sunday 22nd August will mark the start of the Cambridge Harriers Grand Prix race series. The series will run from August 2021 to August 2022 and will consist of a range of race distances and terrains.
All you need to do to enter is run in the designated races and make sure when you sign up you put Cambridge Harriers as your club, so you are easy to find.
I will be using an age grading calculator to make it competitive for everyone taking part and the final result will come from an average of your best 6 races. This may mean that you get an email from me asking for your age at some point (please don’t be offended!).
This is a work in progress and some of the races may change as we progress through the year if there are lots of Cambridge Harriers entering a particular race.
I will accept your fastest parkrun time (and subsequent age grading) as one of your races but you must email me to tell me you would like to nominate one of your parkruns.
There will be medals and a prize for 1st, 2nd 3rd male and female athletes.
The first 7 races are as follows:
Big Half London (Half Marathon) Sunday 22nd August
Paddock Wood Half (Half Marathon) Sunday 5th September
Dartford Bridge 10km Sunday 26th September
London Marathon Sunday 3rd October
Battersea Park 10km (run through event) Saturday 13th November
Cambridge X-mas Handicap TBC
Gravesend Floodlit 10km Thursday 23rd December
I hope this all makes sense, please do email me any suggestions for races from Jan 2022 onwards.
