Awards and Prizes:

We will doing a “drive through” awards ceremony. Well, there isn’t actually a ceremony but runners can pick up the awards by stopping at the awards table once the results have been posted. We have found very limited participation in the awards ceremony in the last few years and want the runners to receive their awards. This is a new concept this year and we hope that it is well received. It is really for the benefit of our runners as every year we have many, many unclaimed awards. This process was well received at last years event.

Awards available to top finishers in each division. The divisions go 3-deep in the Half Marathon and 2-deep in the 5K event.
Awards to Top Harvard Resident finishers in the Half Marathon only.

** Runners are eligible for only one award. Runners qualifying for more than one award will get the higher award and the next finishers in that category will be moved up to fill the category.
