Saturday 20 January Hove Park (This will be a naked run)*
Saturday 3 February Bevendean Down

* For the naked run, please provide Peter Hedgethorne with your estimated finish time by Friday 19 January. Please ensure that you do not wear a watch whilst participating in this event.

Your four best results will count for your final score and the winners of both the men’s and women’s categories will receive a trophy at the club’s Christmas party.

The scoring system is based on our WWUL system of one point for the first, two for second etc. and 30 points for a non-runner. For three of events the scoring is based on first receiving one point etc. For the other events the scoring will be based on the Age Grading percentage you receive in the parkrun results. So the higher the percentage the better you finish place.

Runners are invited to take part in their club vest and if their parkrun registration is with another club, to let Peter Hedgethorne know that they have taken part, so that he can look out for you in the results.

Most importantly, when participating in events in this series please remember to take your barcode to each event. No barcode, No time, No result. It is your responsibility to remember your barcode.

Please note that all parkruns start at 9am.

A little bit of the history behind the Hedgehoppers parkrun Grand Prix Series

Launched In January 2017, the Hedgehoppers parkrun Grand Prix Series is to open to both runners and walkers at the club and follows the parkrun ethos of being open to all – whether you like to run, walk or volunteer at one of the events

The series is based on six parkrun events involving all of the Brighton ones and Peacehaven and Worthing.  All parkruns start at 9am.

The Hedgehoppers parkrun Grand Prix was developed from suggestions by Bob Page to mirror in some form Arena 80’s super series, and Roy Taylor to fill in a long gap between WSFRL races in the first months of the year caused by various changes to their calendar.  The parkrun Grand Prix has developed into an annual competition enabling Hedgehoppers to meet up, run, and socialise at all the local parkruns.
