Merseyside Grand Prix
The Merseyside Grand Prix is promoted and financed jointly by Merseyside Athletics Forum and the Merseyside County Athletics Association. Each of the participating clubs appoints up to 2 club contacts whose role is to liaise with the Co-ordinator over questions of eligibility, and to publicise races and results within their clubs.
The Grand Prix is open to members of affiliated clubs in Merseyside. It consists of a number of races within Merseyside, with the first 6 men and the first 4 women from each club to count in the team event in each race. There are trophies for the overall first 3 men and women (based on best 5 results), the first 3 Men’s and Women’s teams (based on best 6 results) and the winners in each of the Men’s and Women’s vet categories (based on best 5 results).
