The first male runner to finish in under 70 minutes and the first female to finish in under 80 minutes will receive £500 each.
The organisers feel strongly that prizes for the half marathon should be awarded fairly with respect to gender and age category. This recognises age ability and not simply the fastest.
Position prize winners may also claim an age category prize.
There will also be a number of locally sponsored prizes giving every runner a chance to do their best and be recognised.
