Awards & Prize Money Guidelines

  • Runners must be officially registered for an event in order to qualify for awards or prize money.
  • Top finishers (open) times are based on gun time, not net (chip) time. Masters, Local, and Age Group times are based on net (chip) time.
  • Masters (40+) division includes all participants who are at least 40 years of age on race day.
  • Local (Whatcom County) division includes participants who have been residents of Whatcom County for at least one year.
  • Participants may win prizes in multiple divisions. For example, if the second place overall marathon finisher has been a resident of Whatcom County for at least one year, he/she would receive Open and Local division awards/prize money.
  • Early start participants are ineligible for any prize money or awards.
  • Pacers are ineligible for any prize money or awards.
