The 5K awards are plaques to overall Male and Female winners and Medals to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in each 5 year age group... not 10 years. All finishers receive a Finisher Medal. For Duathletes we award plaques, 5 deep, in each 5 year age group. Also, we take special pride in our older age groups... it's tougher to do as we age. So, we give plaques to the Male and Female winners in 10 year age groups, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+. And we have competitors over 70 at each event!
