All registered participants are invited to enjoy a delicious post-race pancake breakfast and a chance to win prizes. The overall male/female finishers, as well as the top three finishers in each of the following divisions of the 5K and 10K will be awarded: 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+.
