Welcome to the ATC!

The 2004-2005 ATC Grand Prix series is now complete. Click here for final standings. The Grand Prix was sponsored by Jus' Running.

The Grand Prix will return in February, 2006. The ATC's competition committee will release updated rules and schedule for the Grand Prix prior to the start of the next season.

The rules for 2004-05 Grand Prix:
  1. You must be an ATC member to participate in the Grand Prix. Your membership will be verified as we start the new series and as we progress through the 2005 year.

  2. Points will be awarded only for your position in the race designated on the Grand Prix schedule. For example, if the Spring Fling 10k is on the schedule, no points will be awarded in the Spring Fling 5k.

  3. The Grand Prix will consist of a fall season and a spring season. The fall season will run from July-November and the spring season will run from February-June. There will be no Grand Prix races in December or January. There will be 18 races on the Grand Prix schedule nine in the fall and nine in the spring.

  4. Adults must compete in at least three fall races and three spring races to qualify for the points competition. Only your three best finishes will be scored. Runners 19 and under must compete in two races each season due to school cross country and track seasons.

  5. The Grand Prix will be scored like a cross country race, with the first ATC member to finish receiving one point, the second two points, and so on. The participants with the lowest score will be the Grand Prix winners. The combined totals from both seasons will determine the Grand Prix champions.

  6. If you change age groups during the Grand Prix season, you will compete in your new age group. Points will be transferred from your original age group to your new age group.

  7. The age groups are as follows: 14 & Under,15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & Over.

  8. Masters are any runners aged 40 and older.
