NEHL 2018-19 Individual Grand Prix

As we head towards the final fixture of the 2018-19 Season at Alnwick next month, positions at the top of the individual grand prix are hotting up.

Grand Prix points are awarded for fastest finishing time (taking off the runners handicap to get their actual time).  1st place gets 1000 points, 2nd place 999 points etc. and the best four placings from the six fixtures are used.

This means that although runners at the top of each category at the moment may look in strong positions, they have to check out the folks who have only ran three fixtures and may be waiting in the wings, ready to fly round the Alnwick Pastures course.

All of the GP points for every league runner may be found on the harrier league website, but here are your highlights:
