New England Walkers members have discussed changing the format for our Grand Prix, which in recent years has let walkers select their four best races from nearly a dozen possible events, most of them short. One possibility is to narrow the list of events, selecting perhaps four major races, each a different distance, and encouraging walkers to complete the full circuit.
