* Mid-Atlantic Championship Race
     
Purpose of the circuit:
The Grand Prix Circuit has been created to enhance the quality of road racing experiences for Mid-Atlantic athletes. These 9 race events represent popular distances, using USATF-certified courses and offering USATF sanctions. That means you can be assured that each race meets the highest standards of management this area can provide.
The circuit offers long distance runners an opportunity to participate throughout the calendar year at a variety of distances and in locations around the tri-state area. Whatever your level of ability, this circuit has something for you. Check this page for updates and results.
       
Rules of the Circuit:
1. Participants in the circuit must complete the respective entry forms for each race in which they wish to compete. Race entries that prove unreadable or contain missing information (e.g. age or gender) shall be considered void for purposes of the circuit.

2. USATF Mid-Atlantic 2012 members who pre-register for a circuit event by the initial deadline and mail their application with their Circuit Discount Coupon may deduct $2 from the stated entry fee. Coupons are non-transferable.

3. Individuals competing in the circuit must be registered as a USATF athlete member before their performances will be scored. Registrars will be available at each circuit race to facilitate purchase of USATF athlete memberships.

4. Individuals who register through another association shall not be eligible for circuit scoring until their membership has been received by the Mid-Atlantic membership chair.

5. Individuals shall be scored for age-group and age-graded competition up to a maximum of 6 performances from these 9 event opportunities. Athletes may eliminate three events without age-group or age-graded penalty. Of course, participation credit will be scored according to all 9 events.

6. Each of the races on the circuit retains the right to manage its entries, to determine whether to offer prize money, and to operate its own award ceremony. This Grand Prix Circuit will operate "after the fact" by using the official race results to determine overall standings. It is intended that current standings shall be on display at each circuit race.

7. The final event (Phila Marathon, Half marathon or Rothman 8K on Nov. 17 & 18) offers athletes an alternative. Any one race between Nov. 17 & 18will score in all categories and may be chosen on the athlete's preference for racing distance.

8. A Mid-Atlantic long-distance running representative shall be present at each circuit race to answer questions, interpret rules, and assist in purchasing USATF memberships.

9. The 2012 circuit offers Mid-Atlantic clubs a team challenge independent of the individual competition. See the club challenge brochure or Grand Prix coordinator for details.
       
Scoring the Circuit:

1. The 2006 Masters Age-Graded Tables, updated in 2010, developed by World Masters Athletics (WMA) will be used to score results in each race. Each finisher's time will be divided into the standard for his/her age and gender; this calculation produces a performance percentage used in the Age-Graded competition.

2. The sum of Age-Graded percentages for each individual from his/her 6 best events will be used in the Age-Graded competition. The top ten males and the top ten females will receive Age-Graded awards.

3. The circuit will also feature Age-Group competition. Age-groups will be in 5-year intervals beginning at age 15. The sum of age-group placement for each person's 6 best events will be used to determine this competition. Awards in each age group will be based on the number of competitors, with a minimum of one. Athletes must complete at least two Grand Prix races in the current year to be eligible for an Age Group award.
**Additional scoring information: WMA% will be used to determine age-grop placement in each event. Points are awarded on a 5-3-1 scale to first through third places in each age-group beginning at age 15. For competition purposes, athletes remain in the age-group they are in as of the first Grand Prix race they complete in for a given year. If an athlete competes in both the Rothman 8K and either the Philadelphia Marathon or Half Marathon the next day, only their better age-group placement from the two races will be used to award their points.**

4. Certificates of participation shall be awarded to every individual who completes in 8 of the circuit races. Those who compete in all 9races shall be given particular recognition at the next award luncheon and shall receive their personalized certificate mounted for wall display.
