Championship 2019 – Master’s Trophy

This year we are adding a Master’s trophy to our Overall Championship, in both Men’s and Ladies Categories. The highest non-ranking veteran will receive a prize. Veterans for ladies is 35+, Men 40+. If you are in the top 3 of the overall championship, you won’t be eligible to win this, but then you’ll be in the top 3 anyway, which is awesome. This prize is for the overall championship only, not the sub-categories.

Happy Running!
