2. The winning schools will be determined by industry standards - the fastest combined time of the top three runners from each team (elementary, middle school and high school). 

3. Race results as posted by Accuchip Timing will be used to determine each runners’ time and overall winning team. These times are official and final.

4. Students and runners 12yrs and under have the option to participate in either the 5K Run/Walk or 1 mile Fun Run. The 5K Run/Walk is timed and results are used for the Fastest Race Team award; the 1 Mile Fun Run is not timed and does not count towards the award.

Heroes awards will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on race day and check presentations will take place at a scheduled date after the event.
