So what exactly is a Grand Prix Series? Take a bunch of LAFR members, a variety of races over the course of 12 months, and award points to each person for their performance. Points are awarded in each division and additional points can be earned for setting a PR, wearing your LAFR uniform, or just finishing a race!
There are four divisions of competition in the Grand Prix:
Champions Race: The Champions Race determines overall Grand Prix Champions. Scores are calculated using the WAVA Age-Graded tables.
Trail Master Race: The Trail Master Race is a combination points & age-graded competition that determines the club Trail Champ.
Age-Group: Points are awarded according to how you place in your age group compared to other LAFR members.
Club Challenge: The 2019 LAFR Club Challenge has three categories: Most Races, Most Miles Road, and Most Miles Trail.

The Grand Prix Series is open to all members regardless of age or experience. Whether you’re a new runner looking to enter your first race or an experienced competitor looking for your next big challenge — everyone is welcome!
