Awards for the 5K will be given for top M/F Overall, top M/F Master Overall, top M/F Grandmaster Overall, and top 3 in each age group (9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, ... 75-79, 80+). 1-mile Fun Run walkers and runners will be recognized for their participation as they cross the finish line. Snacks and water are provided post-race and at the awards ceremony.
