Grand Prix 2020 One-off Registration

IMPORTANT!  On the day registrations no longer accepted.

On the day registrations for Grand Prix races were scrapped in 2018.  This continues indefinitely.  Everything else remains the same.  A one-off series registration must be received online at least 12 hours before your first intended race.  The change was necessary due to time available, resources and a vastly increasing number of runners, particularly on evening races.


The one-off registration for the 2020 race programme will be available 3 weeks before the first race of the new year via a form which will appear below.  You need not register until your first race approaches.  For example if your first race will be race 3 you do not need to register until race 2 has passed.  Your registration will then last the rest of the GP series.

The most important factor in producing fast and accurate results is the neatness of the written results at the finish line.  These sheets each show a grid for 25 finishers where times OR vest numbers should be recorded.  A separate set for each duty is recommended.
