Note: Prize Money and Awards for 2016 have not yet been finalized, but are expected to be similar to those outlined below for 2015. Updates to the 2016 purse will be posted here as soon as they become available.
Open Prize Money: A total of $67,000 in prize money, plus a possible $13,500 in bonuses will be awarded in 2015 in equal amounts to the top 10 international men and women as detailed below. Time bonuses of $1000 for 1st sub-46:00 male; $750 for 2nd sub-46:00, $1000 for 1st sub-52:00 female; $750 for 2nd sub-52:00 female.
American Development Prize Money: A total of $25,000 in prize money will be awarded in 2015 to the top 10 U.S. men and women as detailed below. "Double dipping" is permitted, so anyone finishing in the top 10 overall and in the top 10 among U.S. runners may collect both the open and the U.S. awards. There is also a $10,000 American Record bonus (fastest time beating the U.S. men's 10 mile record of 46:13 or the U.S. women's only 10 mile record of 54:38) - split to $5,000 each if both a man and a woman both break it. If only one breaks it he or she receives $10,000.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Team Championship Division offers $1,000 to the first place men's team and the first place women's team. Teams can be drawn from Running Club Store Teams or Running Club Teams.
The PRRO Circuit Championship bonus of $10,000 will be paid to any runner winning any one of the following races – The 2014 Boilermaker 15K in Utica, NY, 2015 World’s Best 10K, the 2015 Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile, the 2015 Lilac Bloomsday 12K, or the 2015 Peachtree Road Race 10K - plus the PRRO Championship Race. (The bonus will be split if a man and woman accomplish the feat in the same cycle.)
