We will present this award to the top 3 male and female combined times in the Marathon-50k-Marathon Triple and the Half-25k-Half Triple. The Marathon Triple awards will be double sized of course.
The last place award for the 50k and Sunday 26.2 will be our largest award, we are calling this very special award the "Most Enduring" award. This will be for the last person, male or female, who finish the 50k and the Marathon within the official time limit. If someone decides to sit down and wait so they can claim the award, they will be disqualified. You must keep moving and making an effort to finish. We will have race officials following each event to make sure all is kept honest and fair.
