Minnesota’s Annual Rite of Spring

Get in Gear Events

Prize Money and Awards

At this time, Get in Gear will be unable to make the commitment to offer prize money for the 10K in 2022. The awards for all races will be announced in the near future.

Get in Gear is committed to recognizing finishers for their achievements at our events. Prize money is not being offered in 2022. Overall awards and age group awards are generously being provided by Run N Fun and all award winners will receive a gift certificate in the denominations listed below.

Overall awards will be presented on the podium on race day, together with any age group awards that may be available. Awards not presented on race day will be sent via US Post from the Get in Gear office by the last week of May. If you do not receive your package by the middle of June, please contact the office.
