What Can I Win?
Obviously, you can't have a series like this without some prizes. We're working on 2 types:
TOP MALE & FEMALE
The highest-scoring Male and Female runners in the standings will earn the title 2019 Midcoast Maine Runner of the Year, along with all the bragging rights that comes with it.
They will also each receive a complimentary entry into the 2020 MDI Marathon (or half), courtesy of Crow Athletics. The MDI Marathon is widely considered one of the best marathons in the country. ESPN called it the "most scenic destination marathon in the country."
1. Leaderboard Prizes
If you finish in the top 10 overall, you'll receive a complimentary entry to the 2019 Icy Elf 5K in Waldoboro.
2. Frequent Runner Prizes
These will be an escalating set of things you can "unlock" as you run more races, perfect for those of us who love to run lots of races but have no hope of winning.
Run 10 races: Our friends at Fleet Feet Sports Maine will give everyone who runs 10 races a gift certificate for $50. You'll probably need new shoes after running all those miles.
* While volunteering for races counts as a race "run", you'll need to have actually participated in the majority of the races to receive a frequent runner prize. For these purposes, you'll have to run 7.
We're working on more prizes all the time. So, if you're a business and you would like to promote yourself to the kind of amazing people who train hard to run multiple races in multiple places around the midcoast, we'd love to work with you to get your products and message in front of them.
