Each member turns in their time to Grand Prix Meister Mike Friedl. Your score is computed by dividing your time by the American Road Record and multiplying by 1000. For example, if a 42-year old man ran 20:30 for a 5k and the American Road Record for 5k was 14:18, his score would be computed as follows:
14:18 / 20:30 = 0.698
0.698*1000 = 698 points
The South Coast Grand Prix is the Club's annual series of twelve monthly races where members earn scores based on their performances. Dropping the three lowest scores for each, the winner is the member who has accumulated the most net points. Each Grand Prix begins with the July race and finishes with the June race the following year. The winner of the South Coast Grand Prix receives the prestigious Lois Edds Award, named for our own Grand Prix MVP, five-time winner Lois Edds. The 2008-2007 series is the thirteenth year for this prestigious competition.
If you have any questions or want to report your time, send Mike email or buy him a beer some Thursday. He'll be happy to bore you with all kinds of trivia. Remember, only the Race of the Month will count in the Grand Prix!
