AWARDS & SWAG
We’ll be doing things a little differently at PTRF! All runners will receive a “first time” award for their distance, PTRF trucker hat, and a goodie bag of sponsored items (and possibly even beer) in 2023. Lets say you run with us again in 2024, then you’ll snag our “second time” award and so forth.
In an effort to cut the waste and make some room in your closet, we’ll be offering tech t-shirts as an optional purchase for $15 and long sleeves for $20.
We’ve expanded our gender options to three categories (female, male, and non-binary). UltraSignup, our registration platform, are currently working on adding a non-binary options within their results. Age groups awards are abbreviated and will go by the following brackets: 10-19, 20-39, 40+.
