What’s that you say? You’re not a fast runner or a competitive walker, so you have no chance of winning a medal? Not so fast (horrible pun intended)… The Turtle Krawl has one more very special award to hand out – It is the “Middle of the Nest” award, which goes to the person who finishes exactly in the middle of the field, based on overall finishing position*. The “Middle of the Nest” winner will receive a medal, a tile plaque, AND a brand new pair of adidas running shoes!
Lastly, we will be awarding tile plaques to the following finishers as well:
- Top 5 Teams
- Youngest Male Finisher
- Youngest Female Finisher
- Oldest Male Finisher
- Oldest Female Finisher
Here is a photo of the medals from the past few years – As you see, they keep improving. This year’s design can be seen here.
*The calculation we use to determine the Middle of the Nest winner is Total Number of Finishers (including Competitive Walkers) divided by 2, and we round up (ie, we would round 1622.5 to 1623) if the result is a fraction. Sometimes the official race results change for a variety of reasons (disqualifications, for example) after the race. We perform the calculation at the beginning of the Awards Ceremony and that person is declared the winner. If the official results end up changing after the fact, we do not redo the calculation. The winner determined at the Awards Ceremony is final.
