Awards

web-sized-logo-88WIN AN OVERALL OR AGE CATEGORY AWARD?

If you placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in your age category then your name was called out at the awards ceremony on race day.  If you weren’t able to stick around to get applauded by hundreds of fans on race day, you can at least still receive your unique, runner spike trophy.  Each trophy is hand-welded from a recycled rail road spike by a local high school shop class to look like a little runner.  Each one is completely unique and made by hand just for you!  To find out where to pick up your trophy email our event manager atjulia@roanokeoutside.com

Or you can pay shipping fees to have it mailed directly to you.  The medals are quite heavy so the flat rate fee is $12.  Click here to have your runner trophy mailed to you.
