Awards, Parking, Toilets, Hydration Stations, & Prohibited Items

Awards and Ceremony

Awards will be handed out to winners from each age division in both the 5k and half marathon. Runners with the top 3 fastest times from each age group and gender will be given a plaque along with their finishing medal and official time. Cash prizes and gift cards will also be handed out to overall winners of the half marathon, including the top 3 times from both men and women. First place will receive $400, second place will receive $250, and third place will receive $100. These monetary awards will be handed out as soon as official times have been certified, so runners MUST be present to collect their prizes. There will also be a photo-op for winning racers that you won’t want to miss!
