The Grand Grand Prix Series started in 2002 and is organised by the Oxfordshire AA. In the competition most Oxfordshire Clubs compete against each other in a series of 14 road races over various distances.
In the team competition the first four runners for each club score and the teams are then awarded points according to their position on a sliding scale (1st 25 points, 2nd 22 points, 3rd 20points, 4th 19 points, 5th 18 points....). The best 12 results from the 14 races in the series count towards the teams overall score.
Oxford City won the competition in 2011, were runners up in 2009 and 2012, and finished in 3rd place in 2006 and 2010.
In the individual competition finishers are awarded a point for every other Oxon club runner that they beat. All 14 races in the series count towards the overall individuals score so the more races completed the more points you will score. In 2006 Trevor Dixon won the Men's individual competition, Steve Male was the winner in 2011 and Aaron Burgess was runner-up in 2012.
