Prizes will be awarded for
- Top female
- Top male

Battle of the Classes:
To make the Blue Light 5K Run more fun, we’ve established a competition
between alumni in even reunion years (2004, 1994, etc.) and alumni in odd reunion years (2009, 1999, etc.). Winners not only get bragging
rights for the weekend, but they’ll get their photo taken with the
“class cup” trophy that will be engraved to record their win. Alumni runners not in a reunion year will not be included in the competition.
Each alumni runner can earn points for the following:
- Preregistration: 1 point
- Finishing: 1 point
- Finishing in the top 5 as a male or female (first place: 5 points; second place: 4 points, etc.)
- Finishing in less than 23 minutes (male): 1 point
- Finishing in less than 26 minutes (female): 1 point
- Family member(s) joining the run: 1 point per member
Points will be added up individually and then added collectively.
