NEW In 2024! If you place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in your age category then you will be able to pick up your one-of-a-kind runner spike award as soon as results are posted. Each trophy is hand-welded from a recycled rail road spike, designed by a local high school shop class to look like a little runner.  Each one is completely unique and made by hand just for you!  If you missed the ceremony, to find out where to pick up your trophy email our event manager

Or you can pay shipping fees to have it mailed directly to you. The medals and awards are quite heavy so the flat rate fee is $12.

Awards Ceremony

Award ceremonies will take place on the Elmwood Park Amphitheater Stage. In a new format for 2024, we will award the overall winners and masters winners for each distance, then call all age group winners to the stage for a group photo. If you won an age group award, you no longer have to wait for the awards ceremony and can pick it up from the awards area as soon as the awards have been posted (this will likely be before the awards ceremony, depending on how fast everyone runs!)
