How does it work?
The Club Grand Prix is open to anyone who is a fully paid up member of the Seaford Striders.
The method of scoring is as follows:
- Men and women are scored separately.
- The leading Strider in each case will be awarded 20 points, with 19 points for second, 18 for third and so on down to the last Strider to finish.
- A minimum of 6 races has to be completed to achieve a valid final score. Points will be awarded to each runner for up to 10 races maximum.
- Any runner exceeding 10 races will have their best ten results counted.
- In the event of a tie, the winning score will be based on the best average score achieved.

Why Join a Running Club?
There are many benefits to joining a running club here just a few reasons:
Meet like-minded people
Make lots of friends with people you already have running in common with and you can talk with people who understand your running interest/obsession! (blistered feet and all!)
Improve your running
You will always find someone who can run a little faster than you to be able to chase after. Organised sessions with interval training are designed to push you a little bit each week.
Support & Motivation
You will not only have your own personal bunch of cheerleaders but those days when you lack motivation become alot easier when there are others going out and getting it done and encouraging you. Just knowing other people will be there can make all the difference in lacing up your shoes and getting out that door!
"The obsession with running is really an obsession with the potential for more and more life."
