RRRC offers members two types of annual competition.
Grand Prix 2021 Changes because of COVID-19
We anticipate that COVID-19 will impact RRRC races into 2021. We hope to host many of our club races in-person, but each of those races will have a virtual option if local or state directives require limits on participation or continue to recommend the wearing of masks and social distancing. If a 2021 Grand Prix club race cannot be held in-person, RRRC will host a virtual race.
RRRC will have the Grand Prix (GP) Competition and Iron Runner Competition in 2021. We will use the 2020 criteria and cancel the Iron Runner Competition if we miss more than 3 in-person GP club races. We will cancel the GP Competition if we miss more than 6 in-person GP club races. There will be no Titanium Runner recognition for 2021.
Participation in a virtual club race will earn 1 GP point for finishing the race, but no placement points will be awarded because the times are self-reported. You must self-report your race completion time within the time period allotted by the race or you will not get the point.
We hope to have contract events in 2021 that will provide volunteer opportunities to meet the contract race volunteer requirement for GP Finalist and Iron Runner. If we don't secure enough contract races to provide volunteer opportunities, there may be an impact on the GP and Iron Runner Competitions. As always, if you need a point for anything and the volunteer sign up is full, you may show up. Just make sure you sign in on the pre-printed sheet that the Volunteer Coordinator will have, or if need be, email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know immediately.
Each year several Club races are designated RRRC Championship events. Because of COVID-19 and race cancellations, there was no recognition for club championship races in 2020.
