Mold your running in 2024

Like its predecessor the Hudson Valley Grand Prix, this year-long race series is designed to encourage friendly competition and help us to achieve personal goals interspersing the excitement and suspense that motivates participants to a higher performance level than running alone would provide.

With a variety of distances and difficulty levels to challenge runners to both change and adapt their running strategy and styles. We hope to encourage goal inspiring performances and the exercising of perseverance, patience, and vigilance along the way.

FAQ - EXPLAINATION THE GRAND PRIX vs K&Qs RACE SERIES

GRAND PRIX RACE SERIES

The Grand Prix 2024 consists of 15 races with any 8 required
to qualify for the awards.

KING & QUEEN OF THE MOUNTAIN SERIES
The King and Queen of the mountain series is completely separate from the Grand Prix series and is unscored point-wise.

The King and Queen of the Mountains series is a participation only series. So you must complete ALL the races in this series to qualify for the award. - Yes! It has traditionally been made up of the longer and harder races, either in the duration of the event, the hills or both - No Wimps!!

BOTTOM LINE
So even if you don’t run ANY K&Q events that does nothing to your Grand Prix score or your qualification for the Iron Runner Award. 
These two series are totally separate!

 

Fees :
See Registration Form
