After you finish strong, we'll keep you going.
Medical facilities will be available at the finish. The B.A.A. is not responsible for event related injuries, and athletes are responsible for individual expenses incurred. Only runners needing medical attention will be allowed to enter the medical tent.
TIMING AND RESULTS
An electronic timing system will enable you to receive your net time, which will be your official time. The timing and scoring tag will be affixed to the back of your bib, and must not be bent or cracked for you to be scored, timed, and to appear among the results as an official finisher. Timing will conclude two hours after the last starter has crossed the start line. Roads and paths along the route will begin to reopen to traffic prior to the conclusion of timing and scoring, and those remaining on the course will be directed off the roadways and onto walkways by local police. Results will be posted Sunday afternoon on both the B.A.A. website, www.baa.org, and www.CoolRunning.com .
A total of $48,500 in prize money will be awarded equally to men and women based on the time from the starting gun (not by net time). The male and female winner will receive $10,000 each, while the push rim wheelchair winners each receive $500. The awards ceremony is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. on race morning (see below for more information).
MarathonFoto is the official photographer of the B.A.A. 10K. Each entrant will receive an e-mail in the days following the race with details regarding the purchase of photographs.
