Overview

Acknowledgement of the participant’s achievements is an important part of this fun run event. It is also a controversial and sensitive aspect of any competitive and non-competitive activity, where everyone seems to have strong opinion about awards – especially for children.

These sensitivities need to be monitored, whilst decisions and strategies need to be justified in the broader context of our stated purpose.

A constant review of the following strategies is necessary.

Medals
Medals are awarded to the following:
First, second and third to each of the 5 events
First, second and third to each age group within that event.

Certificates
Certificates containing placing and run times are downloaded by the participant directly from our web site.

Preparation

  • Confirm all of the required medals and source suppliers for suitable medals. Have your budget and strategy approved by the RW committee.
  • Prepare category place getters reporting sheets for each event – one for each event age category.
  • Plan the award ceremony and an effective recording and medal awarding strategy for the day. Coordinate this with
  • The timing company – who will fill in your sheets
  • The Master of Ceremonies/Awards Announcer and/or Producer
  • Organise yourself an assistant or runner if you think you need one.

On the Day

  • Set up a medal dispensing area (a table) near the stage.
  • Make contact with the Timing Company reps and arrange for your sheets to be filled out in a timely manner
  • Plan the delivery with the MC/Producer and work to the RW timetable
