The plaque will include your first and last name, and the races you finished with your official finishing times.
In order to obtain this elite award, you must inform HPRS no later than 3 days after your completion of Run Rabbit Run 100 that you would like the award AND your intention to be present at Indian Creek Fifties to receive it.

No award will be mailed, you MUST attend the Indian Creek Fifties to receive it. Running in the event is not required.
Those not wishing to receive an award for completing The Colorado Slam, should still inform HPRS of your doing so. This will allow us to at least list your name as a finisher of the slam so that it may live on gloriously for all eternity.
