Awards determined by points accumulated in each race. Points in the overall category will go 10 deep in each race (10 for 1st, 9 for 2nd, etc.). Points in the Masters, age group and race walking categories will go 5-deep (5 for 1st, 4 for 2nd, etc.). Points will be totaled from each race in overall, Masters, age group and race walking categories, but there is no duplication of Grand Prix series awards.
A maximum of the 12 best races count in the point standings (note that this has changed from the maximum of ten races from the 2016 and earlier CRR Grand Prix series, and was based on a vote of the CRR membership) . Note that there were a total of 21 CRR Grand Prix races for 2016, and 20+ are expected for 2017. Ties broken by CRR membership, head-to-head competition, fastest 5K times, and CRR race volunteer points, in that order. Starting in 2016, although points will be tallied for all runners and walkers throughout the year, all Grand Prix award winners must join or renew with the CRR sometime during the Grand Prix year.
Updated 2017 CRR Grand Prix point standings will be available on the CRR website, and at each CRR race. The Grand Prix awards for 2017 will be given out at the annual CRR Awards Banquet, tentatively the final Saturday in January, 2018.
