Annual “GPGP” Champions- announced at GP Banquet

Age-graded results. Each year we give a “Grand Prix grand prize,” the GP GP, for the runner the highest average on the age-graded tables. It’s a chance to award the woman and the man who perform at the highest level over the course of the year when compared to everyone in the GP, regardless of age. Running attracts geeks, including lots of statisticians. They read and collate certified results form all over, the average, interpolate, occasionally discard, argue (a lot of this) and come up with standards. These (statistically) meld the best performances for your age and sex from all over the world to set targets. As all know who’ve looked, the targets are hard. Our GP GP winners are the two runners who’ve performed best, compared to their worldwide sex and age peers, over the full racing season.
