Grand Prix Rules


Question? Errors? Please send an email to TCRR using the link on the Contact Us menu.


  • Runner must be a member of TCRR Club with a current membership (only races run as a member will count toward Grand Prix).
  • Runner must volunteer at least 1 time and complete at least 1 race, with a total of 4 races and/or volunteering in any combination (i.e. completing 1 race + volunteering 3 times, or completing 3 races + volunteering 1 time)
  • Runner may run in the race in which he/she volunteers (scroll down for updated info on volunteer opportunities)




Points will be awarded in the following manner:

  • For every race that you run, you will be awarded 1 point.  Regardless of where you place in that race.
  • For every race at which you volunteer, you will be awarded 2 points.  Please remember to sign the volunteer sheet at each race in order to get credit!
  • For every new member/family that you refer that joins the club, you will be awarded 3 points.  There is now a place on the membership application for new members to write in the name of the person who referred them.
  • For every corporate/business sponsorship of $100 or more that you get for a race, you will be awarded 5 points.

All TCRR Contract Races are Grand Prix races!!  Some may be added during the year, so keep an eye on our schedule.  We will also be sending periodic e-mails.

Awards will be given to the top three point achievers in each 5- year age group.  Your Grand Prix age will be determined by your age at the first race of the calendar year.  The top 3 runners with the most points (male and female) will receive additional awards.

Awards will be given at next year’s White Bank Classic (this will be announced on website).
