We will not be posting them at the venue, you may log in to our results page to view them as participants finish. PLEASE do not crowd around the podium to cheer on your buddies, we know this is a fun part of racing but we want to continue to exercise with caution so only hang around if you have qualified for an award. The finish line area is pretty big so we encourage finishers to spread out and wait for their names to be called out. We suggest you wear a mask to receive your award. Awards not picked up will be held at Dash Sports for ONE WEEK ONLY so please make arrangements to have them picked up if you cannot stay after the event.
