This is an “Out of the Box” idea. However, there are races in other countries that adopt this kind of arrangement.
Since there are no corporate sponsors for our entry-level road ultras like the Tagaytay To Nasugbu 50K Ultra Marathon Race, I would like to “float” the idea of awarding Cash Prizes to the Top Runners which will be taken from the Registration Fee of each runner.
In order to come up with such Cash Prizes, I would like to increase the registration fee for this race/ultra run (6th T2N) from P 1,500 to P 2,000, where the additional P 500 will be considered as a share of each runner for the Cash Prize. Depending on the number of registered runners in this event, the Cash Prize will be a considerable amount for the Podium Finishers or it could be made to spread up to the top 10 finishers for the Male & Female Categories.
If this event will reach 100 registered runners, then P 50,000 will be allocated for the Cash Prize of the Top Runners. It will be the sole decision of the Race Director on how the Cash Prize shall be divided among the Top Runners. Just like in many races where there are Cash Prizes, the amounts shall be staggered with the fastest receiving a bigger amount of money from the faster, fast and the rest of the top runners.
We will be transparent on how this accumulated Cash Prize will be utilized and distributed to the Top Runners.
Let us support our runners who have the potential to join and excel in ultra running events in the country and soon, for extended exposure to our neighboring countries.
Thank you for your support.
Lace up, get out of the door and run!
