WIN $1,000 AT THE GREAT BAY 5K!
If the race winner (male/female) beats the existing “All Comers” New Hampshire state record times for a 5K (Male: 13:53 by Alene Reta at the Cigna 5K in 2009, and Female: 15:28 by Lynn Jennings at the Couples 5K in 1993) at the Great Bay 5K, they will earn an additional $1000.
The Great Bay 5K course is certified (USATF certificate NH18007BK), but the drop from start to finish of this point-to-point race is too steep for finish times to qualify for an official state record. The good news is that the net-downhill course will help runners go faster! If the winner beats the existing NH state records, they won’t establish a new official state record, but they’ll have bragging rights, and will be $1,000 richer!
