TWH 2023 Club Grand Prix Trophy – final results

Club Events
Hi Harriers
Farrall finds first forthcoming (frequently)

With the first KGP race of the season on Sunday I finally had to admit defeat and publish the final results for 2023.

Despite putting in 8 heroic able-bodied appearances I was unable to catch the queen of one arm banditry.

The Tuesday Tonbridge Internal Session crew continued to dominate the top placings (anyone welcome to come along btw).

I’m sure former Tuesday coaches Mike and Bob are looking down on us with a smile as well as their stop watch.

Here is the list for the overall for those that ran five or more KGP events.

Congratulations to newish members Clifford, Mark, Robin and Kannan who made the list for the first time.

Full results are attached.
Colin Ricketts and myself are the only survivors of the 2013 finalists (I’ll spare you all the aging well cliches)
 The first race for 2024 will be the Canterbury 10 on 21st January. You know you want to ……..
It’s time to commit. 
 
 
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 ten 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 2015 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.
 
Age graded Percentage guidelines:-
100% Approximate world record level
Above 90% World Class Level
Above 80% National Class Level
Above 70% Regional Class Level

Above 60% Local Class Level
