icon Prizes

Finishers Medal & Selection of Prizes for Category winners

Category winners will be awarded on distance covered only. In other words, you don’t have to run the full 12hrs to have successfully completed the challenge. The 12hr duration is simply the maximum allowable time. All entrants, even those that run for 1-2hrs, will have successfully participated in the event and be awarded a medal for their efforts. And if participants from the 100 Marathon Club want to stop at marathon distance to record a successful completion, this is very much acceptable.

The presentation of winners’ prizes will take place at the Race HQ at 9.30pm on Saturday August 31st, 2019. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers, male and female, for the solo event. There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for the finishers of the double and the 4 person relays, and 1st prize only for the 8 person relay team.

There will also be a “Fastest Overall Lap” individual prize for each male and female competitor. This can come from any of the category options.
