Each division has a male and a female section.  Divisions for adults may be split into 5-year age divisions if entries warrant.  This has been the case for several divisions in the last four years.


All runners in each division, not including single race entrants, are ranked and awarded points, with 10 for first, 9 for second, down to 1 for tenth.  One point is also given to all finishers in that division not in the top ten.

You must finish four races to score.  If you run more than four races, your best four point totals count toward your standings.  A perfect score is 40, and we are devising special ways to embarrass – err, honor – someone so dominant in their division!

Tie-breakers include the winner being the person who: runs more races; or has a higher place in a fifth race or in the fifth and sixth races combined.  We generally don’t have to go beyond those tie-breakers.


December 15 • Holiday Event

We will have some fun "spot prizes" to give away at the end of the race!

January 5 • Alumni Day

We will score the second road race for your high school team – whether you are a current or past team member, or the parent of a current team member.  The top 15 male and female runners will each earn extra points for their team, but every participant for each school earns one point for their school!  This year we are giving the winning school $150 toward a pizza party, followed by their own team night at Super Jock ‘n Jill!  Previous winners have included Redmond HS, Edmonds-Woodway HS, and Jackson HS.

February 2 • Old tee-shirt or jersey day

Wear the oldest Winter Grand Prix shirt you have to race, or just the oldest dated jersey or tee-shirt (the year must be printed on the shirt as part of the original design)!  We take photos for the web site and post you in all your glory!


All races start at 9 a.m., unless the number of registrants requires dividing into two or more races.  If the race is too large for our manual finish line, all women and girls and boys under 14 and men over 59 will run a second race at approximately 9:20.  The track races – held in five or more heats – start with the first heat at 9 a.m.

All races start near the beach house on the Waterfront Promenade at Sand Point Magnuson Park in northeast Seattle, except the track races which are held at the Nathan Hale High School track in northeast Seattle, at the corner of 35th Ave NE and NE 110th St.
