The Arkansas RRCA Grand Prix
The Arkansas Grand Prix is a year long series of road and cross country races administered by the Arkansas chapter of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). To enter the Arkansas Grand Prix, a runner must first belong to one of the Arkansas RRCA Running Clubs, located throughout the state. The clubs also compete against one another in the Team Competition.
Runners and clubs accumulate points based on finishing order in each race. Awards are given to top runners and teams at an annual awards ceremony in February following the conclusion of the Grand Prix Series. Registration is open for the 2012 Grand Prix season, check our homepage for links to online registration or a mail-in entry form.
