5k Finisher's Medals (Read 318 times)

     

     

     

    To me, finisher awards are overkill, up to and including HM.  AG awards are fair to all participants.  Age-graded scoring for the overall is almost always interesting; although, would not suggest that is the best way to award OAs at local races or "fun runs".

     

    there is a series of 4 small-mod size races in my area.  each one offers its own AG awards (10 yr AG & awards to top 3 in each).  as far as AG places they use chip time. There is also top 3 for the overall (male & female) cup awards, these are done by age grading.  need to compete in at least 3 out of the 4 races.    pretty cool.

      The new year is here which means basketball season has officially started! What better way to kick off your year than to register for a great 5K that takes place in Big 12 country!

      New in 2014!!
      In addition to a participant shirt, all runners who complete the course will receive a finisher's medal!

      Well, at least according to the website:

      "The overall male and female winners will receive prizing."

        Wow, a medal for a 5K fun run/family stroll!
