          Grand Prix Principles
  1. To ensure that Worksop Harriers are motivated to turn out, in force, in Team Races (especially in League and
    Championship Events)
  2. To encourage Worksop Harriers to turn out in Championship Races, and give them additional rewards for
    medal winning performances, both as Individuals and as a Team
  3. To reward Athletes who wish to enter races over and above those designated, but not to make those rewards
    so great that they take undue preference over designated races
  4. To enable all Athletes to run a Marathon, at a time and place that suits them, and to have points awarded
    for their efforts. No more than 3 Marathons can be included, in an Athletes submission, for a Grand Prix season.
