Reward yourself at the event with a great medal. A winner's medal - because you are a winner. Everyone takes home a medal - no question - whether you finish a 1k, 5k, 10k, 15k, Halfathon, or Marathon. Hang it so everyone sees it. Wear it in the race if you want.
A bar? Of course, a bar is served at each event. Get used to the fruit bar, the baked potato bar, the strawberry shortcake bar, the BBQ bar, or the strudel bar.
Everyone gets a homepage on the Uberthons Results System. Photos - some free, and some you will purchase.
Always take something home with you and don't leave something on the course!
