The WPA Road Running Commission would like to remind all athletes that the Atlantis 21km this Sat 23rd August 2014 is the WPA Half Marathon Championships.
It is also the 10th event in the annual Coca Cola Road League.
The race flyer is attached.
WPA Championship prize money and medals will be awarded in the standard 10-year categories : Open, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+ for both men and women.
In accordance with WPA policy there are no championship awards for Juniors over 15km.
These awards are in addition to the prize money offered by the race organisers.
In each WPA Championship category, prize money will be awarded 1st R1000 2nd R750 and 3rd R 500. The only provision is that there have to be at least 5 athletes entered in the category.
If there are less than 5 athletes in a category, then the prize money for that category will be reduced in proportion to the number of athletes entered.
For example if there are only 3 entrants in the 60-69 Male category, then the prize money is 3/5ths of the above amounts ie 1st R600 2nd R450 3rd R300
For example if there is only one 70+ woman, then she will earn 1/5th of the 1st place prize ie R200
All WPA licenced athletes are eligible for these awards.
Any questions in this regard should be addressed to the WPA office.
