Results & Prizes

Each week everyone who races is interested into a raffle drawing for fun prizes. Last year's prize pool included regional gift certificates, locally crafted goodies, and more.

Participants who join all five races will be in the running for a "Best Turnout" prize awarded on February 12th. Participatns who join three or more races on the same equipment and distance will be in the running for a "Most Improved" prize (based on times) awarded on February 12th.
