2015-2016

CONDUCTED BY: 1ST PLACE SPORTS GRAND PRIX INFORMATION The Jacksonville Grand Prix will consist of 18 races this season. The series will start with the Celebration Run on July 4th and will end with the Run for the Pies the following June. Overall scoring will be determined by using age-graded performance factors (these factors are determined as a percentage of the current age record for each age based on information supplied by USA Track and Field). Age group points are based on scoring in the top ten of each age group.

NEW FOR THIS SEASON! The Grand Prix will be divided into two halves. Nine races in the first half of the season and nine races in the second half. An individual’s grand prix points for overall or age-group awards will be calculated based on the highest total points accumulated for either the first half or second half.

ANOTHER WAY TO BE A WINNER! If you finish ten of the 18 races during the season, you will receive a custom designed glass mug.

WHAT MAKES A JGP EVENT? The Jacksonville Grand Prix is a series of Jacksonville's best road races. These races are top quality, established events. The courses are measured accurately. Each event offers race results to their finishers, and they are conducted by groups or individuals that have experience and expertise in the field of road racing. As a participant in a Grand Prix event you can rest assured that you are running a worthwhile race.

HOW DOES IT WORK? Any runner can compete in the Jacksonville Grand Prix. You do not have to register to take part. All you have to do is run the events. 1st Place Sports will score each race to see if you have accumulated points in the series. The Grand Prix is designed to determine who the top Jacksonville area runners are, given the age differences. There are two ways to score points. First, in the overall competition based on age-graded performances and second, by finishing in the top ten in your age group. The age group and overall competition are scored separately. The scores are not combined!

AWARDS Cash awards will be given to the top five overall finishers. It is important to note that in this scoring system, males and females are combined. The cash awards are as follows: 1st place: $1,000, 2nd place: $600, 3rd place: $400, 4th place: $200, 5th place: $100. Prize money will not be awarded to anyone below the 20-24 age group unless they have completed their college eligibility. Points will be awarded ten deep in each age group. After we have determined who the top five runners are for the cash awards we will determine an age-group champion in each of the age-groups as outlined in the rules section. Grand Prix awards will be given to the top three of each age group, but to qualify a runner must accumulate at least 200 points in either the first or second half of the season.

RULES 1. A  ll runners will compete for points in their age-groups. Points are earned by placing in the top ten of the male and female divisions. 2. The points scored for placing in the top ten of an age-group are: 1st: 100, 2nd: 85, 3rd: 70, 4th: 55, 5th: 45, 6th: 35, 7th: 25, 8th: 20, 9th: 15, 10th: 10. 3. O verall scoring will be based on age-graded performance factors as determined by USA Track and Field. 4. P oints as calculated by 1st Place Sports will be official. 5. Points for the 10 and under and 11-13 age-groups will be based on the accompanying 6K race with the Subaru Distance Classic 1/2 Marathon, the 5 mile in the Winter Beach Run, the 5K in the Pumpkin Run, the 5K in the Run 13.1, and the 5K in hte Jacksonville Bank Marathon. We do not encourage 13 and under participation in races over 10 miles. 6. Double points will be awarded for the Jacksonville Bank Full Marathon and the Run 13.1 Half Marathon. 7. A runner’s score is the highest point total from either the first or second half of the season. 8. A ll runners will count in scoring no matter where they reside, unless the runner is receiving financial assistance from the race as an invited runner. 9. There will be two separate competitions: Overall & Age Group. Overall points will be scored by agegraded factors. Points scored in the age groups will be to the top ten finishers in each age group. There will be no bonus points and there does not have to be ten runners in an age group. 10. I n the case of ties at the end of the season. The runner with the best finish overall will be the winner. 11. The schedule of events and the dates of these events as outlined are tentative. 12. A runner's age-group for age-group championship tabulations will be the age of that runner on the date of his or her first Grand Prix race. 13. Prize money will not be paid to anyone under the age of 21 years. 14. Overall winners will be removed from the age-groups at the end of a season. 15. To qualify for an age-group award, a runner must accumulate 200 points in either the first or second half of the season.

1 /2 MARATHON TRAINING SCHEDULE

Here is a training schedule designed to help you complete a half marathon. This schedule assumes that you are currently running three miles, three or four times a week. The days of the week can be rotated to fit your schedule. The most important point to remember is to not miss the weekly long run.

HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER AND USE ON RACE DAY: 1. Don’t start out too fast. The best way to have a successful race is to run an even pace. Run at the pace that you ran your long runs.

4. Don’t do anything new on race day. Eat and drink what you usually do before your long run.

2. W  ear the same shoes that you used to do your long runs. Do not buy a new pair of shoes to use in the race unless you can run at least three of your long runs in them.

5. G et up early on race day and give yourself plenty of time to get to the starting line.

3. D  rink water before, during and after the race. Don’t wait until you are thirsty to get water. Start drinking a few hours before the race and drink at every opportunity during the event.

6. L  ine up at the starting line in the area not to close to the front. This will help keep you at a reasonable pace. 7. R  ead the race instructions in your race packet prior to reporting to the starting line. The information they contain can be very helpful to your having a good safe race.
