During 2015 the Interior Running Association executive reviewed the age group awards given to series winners. This was prompted by the increasing number of awards that are purchased and personalized only to never be collected. To make the process more efficient the executive agreed that the 2015 awards will include gift certificates to a number of local running stores; easier to personalize, and easier to distribute.
There has been a bit of a delay in getting this process completed. Eligible winners of the age groups in the road race series have already received their Timex watches, and eligible winners of the cross country series have already been sent their gift certificates. However, we are still in the process of distributing gift certificates to other award winners. We will be sending out gift certificates to those who placed 10 deep in the road race series age groups (must complete 4 races) and 5 deep in the cross country series age groups (must complete 3 races). We hope to have this process completed within the next week. If you still have not received your award by then or have any questions please contact us at email@example.com.
We apologize for the delay in getting these awards distributed and shall be conducting a survey shortly to determine the preferred awards given and their scope.
