Local Residents Awards

The last category of awards are given to those who are residents local to the event. In order to be elligible for these awards, runners must be a resident of one of the following New York counties: Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Greene, Columbia, Schoharie, Montgomery, Saratoga, Washington, Warren, and Fulton. In addition to those residents, any current HMRRC member also qualifies for local prize money, regardless of residency.

Local Residents Awards are given to the first three finishers from each race. For the marathon, the top three local residents will receive $300, $200, and $100 respectively. For the half marathon, the top three local residents will receive $150, $100, and $50 respectively.

If an athlete should qualify for prize money in both the Open and Local Residents division, they will collect whichever prize money award is larger, and not both. If such an instance occurs, the next athlete in the division will move up one spot and collect the prize vacated by the first runner. Student athletes are not elligible for prize money. Such instances will be dealt with in a similar manner.
