2024 Grand Prix Series presented by Summit Coffee
Atlanta Track Club's Grand Prix Series 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.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why is my age group place in the series different from my race results?
Because the Grand Prix series covers the entire year, age groups are assigned based on your age on December 31, 2023.
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-person only) in the annual series schedule (a total of 6 events in 2023). Members who achieve this impressive accomplishment will have the option to receive a personalized glass award. The Grand Prix Series Finale is not included as one of the events.
