Race Series Awards:
Each race will provide its own unique set of prizes and awards for the top two racers in each age and gender category. In addition, we track the season-long progress of each racer in the series. At the end of the season, SSPR will host an awards party where prizes are handed out to year-end series champions in each age category, people who participated in all 6 races, and the overall male and female champions. The overall male and female champions will each take home an annual South Suburban recreation center pass good for one year. Overall male and female champions cannot win their age/gender category.
The tiebreaker for all places will be the best 5k time for each runner.
