Get ready for the autumn Grand Prix series

With three of the Grand Prix races now behind us we are looking forward to the final three races that make up the autumn series.

The Bristol 10k was the third race in the Grand Prix and brought the spring series to a close whilst shuffling the positions at the top of the table. Currently John Beattie (handicap -4.9) is at the top of the table with a good lead and 1035 points. Emma Stepto (handicap -0.5) is at the top of the women's table with 732 points and just 4 points ahead of Georgie Bruinvels (handicap 0.3)

Grand Prix points are awarded for the first 250 finishing positions in the six races that are in the series. 250 points are awarded to the first British finisher, down to 1 point for the 250th British finisher and there are extra points available for fast times. Up to the best four scores from the six available races count at the end of the series. If the athlete scores points in less than four Grand Prix events, their best two, three or single score will count towards the final standings. Prize money totals £18,000 and is shared by the top 10 male and female British runners at the end of the series.

At this half-way point, some runners have done all three races, some have done two and some only one and so all eyes are now on the autumn series that gets underway with the Cardiff 10k on 6th September.

The autumn series is made up of:

Cardiff 10k - 6th September

Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon  - 4th October, incorporating British Championships

Age UK Leeds Abbey Dash 10k - 15th November, incorporating English Championships
