Grand Prix Olympics
Each runner will be asked to submit their nationality on registration. To qualify for the Grand Prix Olympics, six runners from a nation must complete the Grand Prix - three women and three men in any age category. The Grand Prix Olympics results will be calculated by the accumulative time of the three fastest men and three fastest women in the Grand Prix from each country.
