Grand Prix points: Overall Grand Prix Points will be awarded to all finishers. To encourage running more than just the 1600 meters - 5 additional points per minute the runner is under 23 minutes will be added to each participants Grand Prix points when you finish the 3200m for each event you run – regardless of your finish place in the 1600 meter. If you run in the between 12:00 and 12:59.9 – that is 11 minutes faster – so 5pts X 11 = 55 bonus points. As long as you finish the 3200m – you are assured 5 extra bonus points.
