The Grand Prix Series is a race circuit for IVS members that rewards participation in running and IVS events throughout the year. 15 IVS Grand Prix Series races offered $5.00 registration discounts to IVS Grand Prix Participants in 2019. (Many races were virtual or cancelled in 2020). Points are distributed across age groups and gender; age group is determined by participant’s age as of 31 December. Awards will be presented at the annual IVS meeting & awards ceremony (scheduled to be held in February of the following year) and are awarded based on the number of races and volunteer opportunities completed and total points accumulated.
Participants must complete three (live, not virtual) IVS Grand Prix Series Races and accumulate 20 volunteer points to be eligible for Annual Awards. All IVS Grand Prix Participants are eligible for IVS Grand Prix Series race discounts.
Grand Prix Race Discount Codes are available to all currently registered Grand Prix participants under the "Members" tab at IVS.org.
2020 Grand Prix participants registration has been extended through 2021 at no charge. New (additional) Grand Prix participants must register, but registration fees have been suspended for 2021. IVS membership required.
