Age Group Awards

Age groups in 2020 will be awarded in 10-year increments to a max of 3 deep (depending on the number of finishers in each group).

  • 1-2 runners in age group: 1 award
  • 3-4 runners in age group: 2 awards
  • 5+ runners in age group: 3 awards

Masters: We will award top 3 male and female masters

Overall Awards:

The top 3 male and female overall will split a prize purse of $1,500, with an additional $200 for men and $500 for women if a Course Record is broken. The male and female overall winners win a trophy Pick Mattock. These are similar to those used to dig up the granite and amazonite for previous age-group awards. Overall winners are not eligible for masters and age-group awards.
