T-shirts will be given out as part of the packet pick-up. We order the size you provide us. If no size is provided, we assume large. T-shirt exchange will be at 6:15 am race morning after packet pickup closes.
All finishers who finish the race by 1 pm will receive a commemorative Grandfather Mountain Marathon medal.
Awards will begin as close as possible to 10:30 am at the marathon tent (just inside Gate 3 to the left) for finishers who are already in. The objective is to award the age group winners as soon as possible to help move you off the mountain.
The age group awards will be presented to the top 3 in each age group. Tentative age groups are: 25 and under, 26-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-59 and 60+. These are subject to change based on the race director’s discretion after reviewing entries.
The top 3 males and females will also receive Highland Games awards up on the track in front of the Grandstand. Please note that the top 3 males and females will be displaced from age group categories.
Highland Games Awards will be presented immediately following our awards to the top 3 male and female finishers.
Note: As soon as we get in the top 3 males and females and a majority of the age group winners, we will begin awards (close to 10:30 am), so time is a little flexible. Our objective is to get racers off the mountain as soon as possible because we know how tired and ready for a shower you will be!
