Awards & Prizes


All marathon and half marathon finishers will receive a Tobacco Road Marathon or a Tobacco Road Half Marathon medal at the finish line.


T-shirts can only be picked up at the pre-race Expo only as there is no race-day packet pickup. Every registered runner will be given a race t-shirt and a surprise Tobacco Road Marathon item.

Cash Awards

The total prize purse for the event will be $17,000. We will announce the top 3 overall male and female award winners during the awards ceremony. Results for all cash awards are based on gun time, per USATF rules.

Cash awards are given to the top 3 participants male and female overall, top 3 Masters male and female and top 3 Military male and female. Checks will be mailed out 24-48 hours after the race to allow time to confirm all results.

There is no double-dipping in our awards. You are only eligible for one award. Ex: if you select Military you are only eligible for the Military payout.
