Grand Prix Update as of September 14

Like so many other things in 2020 the Coldwell Banker Elite Grand Prix has needed to adapt to the impacts of COVID. Several races were canceled or went virtual this year. The Grand Prix Directors have been working diligently to provide runners the ability to compete/participate even with the loss of races. Be sure to stay up-to-date by following us on Facebook or by checking theRunFarc website.

There have been several posts that provided key pieces of information that we hope to bring together and provide a clear picture. Runners have 2 options available to them in 2020:

  1. Receive recognition for completing the Grand Prix by completing 6 live or virtual events
  2. Compete for a Grand Prix Points Award by completing at least 4 live events

The below graphic summarizes the Grand Prix status and requirements for 2020:
