2015 Grand Prix Schedule
The 2015 Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix Competition schedule has been approved by the Board of Directors. This year's slate of races has something for everyone, as the distances range from 5k to 1/2 marathons. The first race of the year, the Old Fashioned Ten Miler in Foxboro, was postponed until Sunday, March 8th, the same days as the March Grand Prix race, the Raynham Knights of Columbus 5-Miler. Both races are still part of the Grand Prix; however, only points from one of the two races will be awarded. Hopefully, Mother Nature cooperates! Some old favorites remain, some old favorites return and some new favorites will be making their debut in the Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix! For complete details and schedule, be sure to visit the Competition page.
