What you get:
Now let us be clear... We are not simply giving cash away to the first person to cross the finish. Too boring. Instead, how about $1000 to the winner of an age & gender graded competition?! That's right! $1000. Winner take all! All you speedy folks out there, young and old take notice! Young guys, get off your mom's couch and show us your stuff. Ladies, show these guys you can hang with the boys anytime, anywhere! You may come across the line first, but unless you have what it takes you ain't taking home to cash!
Curious about how the event will be scored? Your age-graded score is the ratio of the approximate world-record time for your age and gender divided by your actual time. Want to estimate what your score might be? Check out this link: http://www.runnersworld.com/
