Awards

Electronic Timing

The Prairie Fire Marathon Race Series will be electronically chip timed to ensure that everyone receives an accurate time. Age group awards will be based on a timing system time (the actual time elapsed between an athlete reaching the starting line and the finish line).

finishers’ medal

All participants crossing the finish line will receive a finisher’s medal! This year’s medal (2023) is being designed by Hasty Awards.

 

Category Awards

Awards will be presented in the Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K.

Overall event winners in male, female, master, and non-binary categories are excluded from age group awards. Participants cannot win multiple awards.

Prize Money Eligibility

We’re excited to once again offer prize money for the Prairie Fire fall races!  Places are based on gun time. Participants placing in the overall top three and also placing in the Age Graded Masters division (Age 40 and over) will receive the greater of the two cash amounts and the other position will be given to the next runner. Prizes will be paid only after results are declared final by Prairie Fire Race authorities and after administrative processing. Any person winning prize money must provide a US address for the mailing of the prize and any related documents. They also must ensure their US address is kept current with Prairie Fire Race staff.

In addition, if prize money paid is $600 or more, runners must provide a properly completed and signed most current version of IRS Form W-9 (available on the IRS web site) If any information on the form changes before the end of the year during which it is submitted, a new form with updated information must be submitted immediately. Failure to provide properly completed forms and a valid US address before the end of November immediately following the winning performance will result in forfeiture of the prize.

Open and Masters

Prize money is awarded to the first three male and first three female finishers in the full and half marathon. Open and master’s awards are based on gun time. Master’s awards are age graded.
