Awards & Prizing.
Please note there is no prize money in 2021. And the high performance program will be back in 2022.
This is what you can expect in 2022!

There are also bonuses for athletes who break the course records and incremental bonuses based on the top female and male marathon times ran in Canada. The elite standards are tough and the competition is sure to be fierce. We look forward to cheering on all athletes on May 31, 2020.
