Virtual GP Guidance Notes

Events will be organised in line with Government guidelines at that time.

Courses will be marked with temporary spray paint and directions provided in advance.

You are encouraged to run in your red club vest/top.

No club standards will be awarded for virtual events.

Each runner is responsible for submitting their time with proof of time and distance (using Strava or equivalent). Results should be submitted by 12 midday on the day following the event.

You must complete 8 out of 16 events to complete the Grand Prix, with at least one event from each of the three categories. Cat 3 events will be selected later.

No decision has yet been made as to whether you will need to complete an event from each ‘type’ (road, XC, Trail, Fell) and this will depend on whether all types of event are available to enter in 2021.

We will look to introduce actual races into the Grand Prix when the time is right.

You can submit your time in several ways. Firstly, if you use Facebook you can put a post on the Clowne Road Runners Members Group page and share your achievement with fellow members. Please remember to include proof of your time/distance when posting. If you are too shy to do this, you can send details (and proof) to be via Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. And if you’re shy and only use email ….. my address is Please submit your time & proof no later than midday of the following day.

Finally, please bear in mind there will be no marshals on courses, ‘Beware Runners’ signage, or first aid. So take extra care, especially when running on or near roads.
