LMJS RACING TEAM
The Pacific Association sponsors individual and team competition in road racing, mountain ultra trail running and cross country racing called the Grand Prix Series with prize money. These each consist of twelve to sixteen races spread around Northern California throughout the year.
The purpose of fielding our age-group teams in this competition is not as much about winning, but about trying your best, promoting camaraderie in LMJS, and getting a little outside your comfort zone by racing against the most competitive runners in Northern California.
The races range in length from 1 mile to the marathon with point totals being kept over the race series for both individuals and teams. To view a schedule for the 2019 Road Race Grand Prix Series

To compete for the club, you must join the Pacific Association USATF, a cost of $35 per year. If you are already a PA member and race for another team, all you have to do to compete for LMJS is to change your affiliation and you can race for us after 90 days. The team funds a few races for everyone that wants to race, pays gas toward carpools of 3, and renews the PA membership for the following year for any team member having raced 3 times the preceding year.
