UPDATED Sept 24 2021
The leaderboard has now been updated. Final race will be BIGGSteps 5K which is listed below so as long as you have run BOTH “Live” races and the “Live” BIGGSteps 5k race, you are still in the…running!
Also keep in mind that if you run 3 out the 4 races, either “live” or “virtual” you qualify for the coveted series prize (currently TBD)!
SECOND: The next and final race in the 2021 Needham Bank Race Series is the BIGGSteps 5K race that will take place on Sunday November 14th @ 10 AM. There is also a “virtual” option to run as well! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER for all BIGGSteps races.
THIRD: Prize Money is back in play for the top three Male and Female runner times! In order to qualify, runners must run all THREE “live” 2021 5K races (ie Charles River Independence Day, Jog Your Memory and BIGGSteps). The top three M & F runners will be determined by the average of their three race times. Unfortunately, since virtual races are not official times, they cannot be used.
The Leaderboard is currently being updated and will be posted when completed.
Prize amounts for both Male and Female runners are as follows:
FIRST PLACE: $500
SECOND PLACE: $250
THIRD PLACE: $100
FOURTH: We are happy to announce that the Needham Grand Prix Series Award is back for all people who registered and participated in at least 4 of the races this year, being Live or Virtual! We are currently working on the prize and participation board but will be updating the Leaderboard with an updated list shortly. Please check back for an update.
