Congratulations to all of those above with a special nod to those who had also run in The Southern Cross Country Champs the day before.

The club road Grand Prix Trophy is designed to encourage Harriers to race more often, and on equal terms with all other members as the results are adjusted for age and gender. Each race of the 10 Kent Grand Prix series counts towards our club road grand prix with a percentage result based on finishing time, age and gender. This percentage is calculated according to the 2010 WAVA scale. The winner is the runner with the best score at the end of the season, that is the average of their best five percentages over the series.

The same results as above, now in Age Grading order.
