Prize Money Guidelines

  1. An athlete can be awarded prize money in only one category.

  2. Prize money winners and elite athletes cannot qualify for age division awards.

  3. If a runner places in two prize money categories of equal value, prestige takes precedence. (Example: If runner qualifies 3rd in 10K and as Top Ohioan, he or she would be awarded 3rd place in 10K.)

  4. Cash awards are based on gun time not chip time. 

  5. Runners must be officially registered for an event in order to qualify for any awards or cash prizes. 

* There is no prize money for the half marathon or 5K
