  • Awards go to the top three overall finishers, male and female.
  • Additional awards will be presented to the top five in all age groups in both races.
  • Age groups are: 19 and under, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, and 70+.

    The Awards Ceremony for overall winners in each race will take place in the finish line area immediately after they have all completed the race.
