  • Racing Season 2014!
    1/20/2014 11:18:46 AM

    Get Ready, Get Set, GO! Participants of last year’s Grand Prix Run/Walk Race Series will need to log in to this website and verify their account information for the start of the 2014 season.

    This year, The Health Plan, CentreTown Fitness, Hole-n-Run, Undo's, Ryan Ferns Healthplex, Main Street Bank, Home Pizza, Ogden Newspapers, Runner's Connection and the Ohio Valley Runners’ and Walkers’ Club are teaming up in an effort to promote healthy lifestyles throughout the Ohio Valley with the Ohio Valley Grand Prix Run/Walk Race Series.

    Once you have verified your information for the series, DO NOT forget to select which events you are participating in so we can verify your participation and competition points. You will still need to fill out whatever forms the event itself requires, but as event registration forms become available we will link them to our site.

    Runners and walkers will accumulate participation points for every 5K they complete in the participation category. Once an entrant accumulates 10 points within their category, they are automatically eligible to attend and receive awards at the annual “Taking Strides Towards Better Health” Grand Prix Race Series banquet.

    Competition Points will also be awarded at the majority of the Grand Prix events to the top 10 finishers based on Grand Prix age categories. Events that are Participation Points only are marked on the schedule with an asterisk. This year, we will be utilizing a participant’s best 10 Competition Points for age category awards at the end of the series.

    NEW this year, we will have drawings for CentreTown memberships, Ryan Ferns HealthPlex memberships, Runner’s Connection certificates and more for our Iron Man and Woman category. To attain this level, participants have to accumulate 20 or more participation points for the 2014 Grand Prix racing season. We encourage you to get out there and run or walk. The more you do, the closer to the Iron Man/Woman category you get!

    You can find a complete set of rules and points system on this website. You can also find the race series calendar and important news updates.

    We look forward to seeing you at one of the many races in the series and we hope to help you “stride towards your better health” in 2014.
