Will there be prizes and awards?

The top 3 men and women who complete the TC 5K Challenge will be awarded a finisher certificate with his or her place and time! Due to the complexity of the series, age group awards will not be awarded.

When will I receive my gear?

What if I'm suddenly injured before an event in my series?

If you suddenly are unable to participate in one of the events in your series, you will not qualify for cumulative series results and become ineligible for top finisher prizes. You are welcome to continue to participate in the events, and are eligible to pick up a medal and gear at the completion of your series. Gear and series medals will only be distributed in the tent. You must pick up this gear after the completion of the series on October 6 and 7. Gear not picked up will not be mailed.
