Awards & Results

There are many ways to win at the Great Bay 5K: Cash awards for the top male & female runners and walkers; cash awards for the male/female winner of the unique Mackenzie Mile; special awards for male and female teams – including the coveted New England Oyster Cup; distinctive awards for the top 3 male/female finishers in each age group; and cash awards for the winners in the 5K costume contest. See below for details on all the ways you can win!

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!
