The Maryland and DC RRCA clubs have decided to try to put on the 2021 Maryland / DC Grand Prix and Women’s Distance Festival series. This is all, of course, dependent on how the numbers go with the pandemic, but with the availability of vaccines, we are optimistic.
The Maryland Grand Prix series includes the races below from across the state. Runners who run
four (4) three (3) or more races qualify for awards which are given out at the following year’s RRCA Club Challenge in Columbia. [Note this is normally four or more, but in 2021 because of race cancellations throughout the season, it’s only three]
Top three (3) qualifying overall men and women, plus top two (2) qualifying men and women in each age group win an award.
Age groups are 19 and under, 20-24, … , 75-79, 80 and over. (Note 70-74 and 75-79 age groups are new starting in 2019 — for 2018 and earlier the age groups went up to 65-69, then 70 and over).
Please verify that your results are included in the standings as soon as possible after they’re posted (generally within a week from race day). We can take corrections until 40 days after the day of the race.
Please send corrections to email@example.com.
NOTE: availability of all races is subject to local COVID-19 restrictions
