PRESENTATIONS

All finishers receive a custom designed medal.

1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners each receive a trophy and a prize. However, the winner must be present to receive the prize. If you are a winner, we hope you can stay. Presentations will begin between 11:30-12:30pm, pending finish times. If you are a winner and cannot stay, please let us know.
