General Discussion / VERY INTERESTING - Please read
« Last post by Bill Wright on April 24, 2016, 11:24:09 AM »
Following all the kerfuffle about EA and their diktat that you must be an EA member to run for your club in GP races, I have just entered the Deal Dinosaur 10k on 24th July, which is a GP race. I entered via Runners World, who of course charge you £2 for the privelege. I entered as affilated, put TRAC down as my club and then was asked, in a non-mandatory box, for affiliation number "if known". I did not put anything in and my entry was accepted.

For years I have suspected that the RW site works on the basis of the Club being affiliated not the individual. If you book a race through RW at the £2 cheaper affiliated rate you must put down a club name, but you do not have to put an affiliation number because, presumably, they know that most members will not know what their club's affiliation number is. This might be a way for folk like Andy to continue to score points in the GP races without being an EA member.

The Grand Prix races are also our club championship races, so taking part in them increases your chances of winning one of the club awards at the end of the year. There are still 6 of the 10 races left this year and the next one is the Staplehurst 10k on the 5th of June which is supposed to be a nice flat and potentially fast course, so why not give it a go.

Hi Sarah

GP races are Grand Prix events.  If you run in them you can get points for the club and at the end of the season the club with the most points win.  They are a good way of meeting other club members and often people will car share etc  :)

Hi

I was just looking through the forum at the EA information and saw GP races mentioned.  Can I just ask what are they? I only joined in October so am a bit of a newbie.  Sorry  if it is a stupid question.

Thanks

If we can get somebody else to act as Webmaster I am quite happy to take over the spreadsheet. After all, spreadsheets were my "bread and butter" for the whole of my working life.

Hi Ian,
No panic, for now at least! I'm happy to see this year's champs through. But then someone else will have to take it over next year....
