Awards will be presented to the top 3 male and female finishers in each event. The top three male and female in the 100M, 100K and 50M race will receive a hand-painted buffalo skull (yes, from a real buffalo, which, to the best of our knowledge, died of natural causes).
Age group awards will be presented to the top 3 male and female finishers in each age group in ten year increments (e.g. 20-29, 30-39, etc.).
We do not double-dip on awards – runners receiving an award for a top 3 overall finish will not be eligible for age group awards.
Every runner who finishes the 100 mile race within the 32 hour time limit will receive a belt buckle. Runners finishing in under 24 hours will receive a silver buckle with a gold buffalo skull. Runners finishing between 24 and 32 hours will receive a silver buckle with a bronze buffalo skull. A photo of the prototype buckle can be seen in the sponsor scroll on the right side of this page. The final design may differ slightly.
All runners who finish the 50M and 100K races within the time limits will receive a distinctive finisher’s medal designed to resemble the official trail markers seen along the Centennial Trail.
Awards will be presented for all three races at noon on Sunday. We realize that some of you may be done well before then and ready to leave town, so if you would like to collect your award early, you are more than welcome to do so. If you would like to have your award shipped to you, you will be responsible for any associated cost. We also recognize that not all 100M runners will be done by noon as the course is still open for two more hours, but we have found that attendance at the awards ceremony is greater if it is held earlier in the day, allowing those who are finished to begin their travels home or embark on post-race sightseeing ventures in the Hills.
All runners will receive a goody bag when they check-in containing samples from our sponsors, their bib number and a t-shirt.
