Grand Prix Series presented by Piedmont Healthcare

Atlanta Track Club's Grand Prix Series Presented by Piedmont Healthcare consists of events where Atlanta Track Club members earn points in two categories: performance and participation. The points are tracked, compiled and posted after each Grand Prix event and awards are given out at the Grand Prix Finale. Eight of the 10 events in 2020 are free to Atlanta Track Club members

Due to COVID, Atlanta Track Club has suspended age group, age-graded and overall awards for the 2020 series. Atlanta Track Club will continue to award participant points. Competitors who completed 6 or more races will receive a participation shirt at the Grand Prix Series Finale event in November.

Participating in the Grand Prix is an excellent way for members to challenge themselves while taking advantage of the events Atlanta Track Club produces around the metro Atlanta area. For more detailed information and Grand Prix Series rules, please see the Frequently Asked Questions section below.

Grand Prix Series Frequently Asked Questions

How does a member participate in the Grand Prix?

No enrollment is required to participate in the Grand Prix Series presented by Piedmont Healthcare and there are no minimum event requirements. In other words, all Atlanta Track Club members who participate in at least one event are included in the standings for the Grand Prix season.

Why are race day results/awards and Grand Prix event results different?

Every Grand Prix series event has two sets of results - race day results and Grand Prix member results. Race day results are comprised of ALL participants in the event, whether the participant is an Atlanta Track Club member or not. Race day results use the participant's age on race day to determine his/her age group division. Grand Prix results, however, encompass only current Atlanta Track Club members. A participant's age division in the Grand Prix series is determined using December 31, 2020 as the age base date. For example, if you are currently 34 years old but will be turning 35 at the end of November, your age will appear as 35 in the standings and you will compete in the 35-39 age division for the entire Grand Prix season. Because of these two factors (member status and age base date of December 31), race day results and Grand Prix results differ for the same event.

Who is David Jordan and what is the David Jordan Award?

For ten years, from 1999 through 2008, David Jordan ran every single race in the Atlanta Track Club Grand Prix Series--a feat made even more remarkable by the fact that David is a survivor of childhood polio. He is the embodiment of dedication and determination and proof that "the race is not always to the swift".

The David Jordan Award is presented to all Grand Prix participants who successfully complete every race in the annual series schedule (a total of 9 events in 2020). Members who achieve this impressive accomplishment will have the option to receive a personalized glass award.
