The competition aims to encourage club members to race regularly, especially where team, as well as individual, performance is important.

Key fixtures are the Chingford League and Essex League races, and especially the three traditional mob matches against Blackheath, Ranelagh, and South London Harriers. Double points are awarded for away mob matches, reflecting their key role in the club’s history.

The format of the Grand Prix has evolved over the years, and has recently been expanded to reflect the growing importance of the Essex League. Formerly the best 8 from 10 races would count. Then best 10 from 15. Current season (2015-16) best 10 from 16 count!

Top 3 runners are promoted from lower divisions. Bottom 3 (point scorers) are relegated in addition to runners who do not race at all in the season who are relegated 2 divisions.

Second claim tables are based on a smaller number of races, since many runners are representing their First Claim club in Chingford and Essex League races.
