New Team Scoring Guidelines for 2019 Road Race Grand Prix

2019 brings new team scoring rules for women's team in the Road Race Grand Prix!  
Starting with the New Bedford Half Marathon, Open Women's teams will require 5 runners to score for a team at distances through 25km - that matches open men's scoring requirements.   

Women's age 40+ and 50+ teams will need 5 runners to score at the 5km / 8km / 10km distances; but only 3 runners are still needed for distances longer then 10km. 

W60+ and W70+ remain scoring 3 runners at all distances, and runners can still "score down" in a younger age group. 

The decision was made after a poll of participating clubs in the 2018 Grand Prix.
