Illinois Valley Striders is excited to present the IVS 50k Challenge as a new IVS Grand Prix event in 2019!
The rules are simple:
(#1) Be a club member and entered in the Grand Prix. The website is https://www.ivs.org/join for non-members and https://www.ivs.org/Renew-Membership if you haven't renewed yet. Grand Prix registration is at https://www.ivs.org/event-3099111.
(#2) Complete IVS Grand Prix races totaling at least 50k in 2019: this can be any combination of 5k, 10K, 10 miles, half marathon or trail race.
What do we mean by "Grand Prix" race? There are a number of official IVS Grand Prix Series races every year. These are the races that are officially recognized as Grand Prix races by our running club. Non Grand Prix races won't count toward the total for this challenge.
IVS Grand Prix Races are labelled "GP" on line 2 of the IVS Grand Prix Schedule.
When you have completed any combination of Grand Prix races totaling at least 50k, you will get a SWEET finisher's prize for your efforts! (This will be awarded during our annual Awards meeting in February.)
We hope you will join us for this new challenge in 2019! See you at the starting line!
