MDRA 2010 Grand Prix Join the MDRA Grand Prix Compete against the best in your age group for fun and fame How it works: 1. Cost is $5.00 for the entire series. This is above and beyond the race entry fees, and is a one-time fee paid to the MDRA. Scoring will include only GP registrants who are registered finishers of a GP race. No retroactive registration; runners registering after Human Race, for example, will not be counted in Human Race’s GP results even if they ran it. 2. Runners score according to their finish place out of all GP registered finishers each race. The first GP runner in each race will score 1,000 points. All others will score based upon the percentile in which the runners finish such that the middle finisher will always score 500 points. Points are awarded without regard to age or sex. In scoring races we use USATF rules (thus gun time is used rather than chip time). 3. There are 13 GP races. A runner may compete in as few or as many of the races as they choose; however, results from only 10 races will count. If a runner runs more than 10 races, only their 10 highest scores will count. Anyone running in 10 or fewer races will have all of their scores included. 4. Scores are tallied within age division for each sex. Runners do not change age divisions during the year. A runner’s division is set according to his division on the day of his first GP score. For example, a runner turning 50 on April 1 would be scored all year in the 45-49 bracket if she runs Human Race as a GP registrant, but would score all year in the 50-54 bracket if her first GP score is after April 1. 5. Age groups for both male and females are 0-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85+. In order for an age group to exist, it must have at least two participants, and each participant must complete 2 races. In order for any individual to win an age group, they must run in at least 2 races. 6. There will be awards for each age group winner, which will be presented at the MDRA annual party held in January 2011. Also, Strands will present a special award to anyone who participates in all 13 races. Anyone participating in at least 10 of the races will get a nice MDRA technical shirt. 7.

The 4th Annual Wild Goose Chase is a small iconic run in West Central Minnesota around Lac Qui Parle Lake. Some people say the race is for the birds because the whole lake is a wildlife sanctuary for numerous migratory birds. But for others, the Goose Chase is a race of a different feather. It's a chance to run with a new flock in a far out place with small town affordability and hospitality.
