***GRAND PIX UPDATE***

Due to the cancellation and rescheduling of the Radnor Run 5 Mile to now be held on the same date as the Run The Bridge 10K, the USATF Mid-Atlantic LDR Committee has made the following adjustments to Club Challenge and Grand Prix scoring.

Club Challenge: On Nov. 6, the best five WMA% scores for a club's members at the Radnor Run and Run The Bridge will be counted for a single team score. As there is effectively one less scoring "event" in the competition, a club's best six (instead of seven) events will be scored for the Club Challenge.

Grand Prix (individuals): As there is one less race opportunity, an athlete's best five (instead of best 6) WMA% scores from Grand Prix races will be counted in the overall Grand Prix and Age Graded competition.

Finisher plaque and certificate eligibility: As the number of races an individual can participate in has been reduced from nine to eight, those who complete eight (instead of nine) Grand Prix events will receive a plaque mounted certificate. Certificates (not plaque mounted) will be provided to individuals who complete 7 of the Grand Prix races (no change).

Grand Prix races at entry limit:

Purpose of the circuit:
The Grand Prix Circuit has been created to enhance the quality of road racing experiences for Mid-Atlantic athletes. These 9 race eventsrepresent popular distances, using USATF-certified courses and offering USATF sanctions. That means you can be assured that each race meets the highest standards of management this area can provide.
The circuit offers long distance runners an opportunity to participate throughout the calendar year at a variety of distances and in locations around the tri-state area. Whatever your level of ability, this circuit has something for you. Check www.mausatf.org for updates and results.
       
Rules of the Circuit:
1. Participants in the circuit must complete the respective entry forms for each race in which they wish to compete. Race entries that prove unreadable or contain missing information (e.g. age or gender) shall be considered void for purposes of the circuit.

2. USATF Mid-Atlantic 2011 members who pre-register for a circuit event by the initial deadline and mail their application with their Circuit Discount Coupon may deduct $2 from the stated entry fee. Coupons are non-transferable.

3. Individuals competing in the circuit must be registered as a USATF athlete member before their performances will be scored. Registrars will be available at each circuit race to facilitate purchase of USATF athlete memberships.

4. Individuals who register through another association shall not be eligible for circuit scoring until their membership has been received by the Mid-Atlantic membership chair.

5. Individuals shall be scored for age-group and age-graded competition up to a maximum of 6 performances from these 9event opportunities. Athletes may eliminate three events without age-group or age-graded penalty. Of course, participation credit will be scored according to all 9events.

6. Each of the races on the circuit retains the right to manage its entries, to determine whether to offer prize money, and to operate its own award ceremony. This Grand Prix Circuit will operate "after the fact" by using the official race results to determine overall standings. It is intended that current standings shall be on display at each circuit race.

7. The final event (Phila Marathon, Half marathon or Rothman 8K on Nov. 19 & 20) offers athletes an alternative. Any one race between Nov. 19 & 20 will score in all categories and may be chosen on the athlete's preference for racing distance.

8. A Mid-Atlantic long-distance running representative shall be present at each circuit race to answer questions, interpret rules, and assist in purchasing USATF memberships.

9. The 2011 circuit offers Mid-Atlantic clubs a team challenge independent of the individual competition. See the club challenge brochure or Grand Prix coordinator for details.
       
Scoring the Circuit:

1. The 2006 Masters Age-Graded Tables developed by World Masters Athletics (WMA) will be used to score results in each race. Each finisher's time will be divided into the standard for his/her age and gender; this calculation produces a performance percentage used in the Age-Graded competition.

2. The sum of Age-Graded percentages for each individual from his/her 6best events will be used in the Age-Graded competition. The top ten males and the top ten females will receive Age-Graded awards.

3. The circuit will also feature Age-Group competition. Age-groups will be in 5-year intervals beginning at age 15. The sum of age-group placement for each person's 6 best events will be used to determine this competition. Awards in each age group will be based on the number of competitors, with a minimum of one.

4. Certificates of participation shall be awarded to every individual who completes in 7 of the circuit races. Those who compete in all 8 races shall be given particular recognition at the next award luncheon and shall receive their personalized certificate mounted for wall display.
