Grand Prix Rule Summary

The Peninsula Track Club Grand Prix Race Series is designed to encourage participation in PTC events, promote competition, and reward long-term performance and volunteerism. Grand Prix points are earned based on the racing results of designated Grand Prix races and by volunteering for any PTC race. You don’t have to sign up for the Grand Prix. If you are a member and you run a Grand Prix race or volunteer, you automatically earn points. However, in order to qualify for a Grand Prix racing award, you must volunteer for a race at least once during the year.


Points are awarded to the top ten (10) male and female runners in each age group. Scoring is as follows: 1st place in each age group receives 10 points, 2nd place receives 9, 3rd gets 8 and so on down to the 10th place runner who receives 1 Grand Prix point.
Overall winners receive 10 points plus bonus points based on the overall place awarded. For example, if awards go to the top 3 overall, the first place man and first place woman receive 10 points plus 3 bonus points (total of 13) Grand Prix points. 2nd overall receives a total of 12 points and 3rd receives 11.
There is no limit to the number of racing points that can be earned. However, you must be a PTC member in good standing when the Grand Prix event is held.

The PTC Grand Prix is unique in that points can be earned through volunteering. Every time a member volunteers for an event, race or litter-getter they receive a three (3) Grand Prix volunteer points. Additionally bonus volunteer points are awarded for the following conditions:

1) Double points for two race events or extended events like Mulberry Island or the Virginia 24 Hour Run count as two races – you get 6 volunteer points.
2) Volunteer to be a Race Director or Race Coordinator for a race. The Race Director receives 10 bonus points (13 points total), Race Coordinator gets 5 bonus points (8 points total).

3) Volunteer Bonus: Members also receive a one-time bonus of 7 points (10 points total) for their third volunteer effort.

To volunteer for a race simply contact our Volunteer Coordinator (Jaime Cox, 817-1221 or e-mail: to officially volunteer for the race of your choice. On race day, show up one (1) hour prior to race time and check in with the Volunteer Coordinator.
There is no limit to the number of volunteer points that can be earned, although no more than 6 volunteer points can be earned for a single event. Also when the Grand Prix points are totaled, volunteer points cannot exceed the racing point total. The member with the highest Grand Prix point total (combined racing and volunteering) at the end of the year becomes PTC Grand Prix Champion. Good Luck!
