SFoR Announces AnyRunner
Prize Money䋢

$2,400 Up for Grabs in First-Ever,
Performance-Based Prize Money for
Middle-of-the-Pack and Back-of-the-Pack

SYRACUSE, N.Y. ‰ÛÒ The Syracuse Festival of Races (SFoR) has announced the
twenty-four 5K finishing times that runners from throughout the U.S. will be
aiming for in the world‰Ûªs first performance-based prize money race for
middle-of-the-pack and back-of-the-pack runners. The new AnyRunner
Prize Money䋢
will debut in conjunction with the Men‰Ûªs 5K
and Women‰Ûªs 5K at the 19th annual SFoR on Sunday, October

“As the name implies, AnyRunner Prize Money‰ã¢ is intended to
give runners finishing throughout a broad range of times the opportunity to
enjoy the experience of racing for‰ÛÓand winning‰ÛÓprize money,” says Dave Oja,
founder and race director of the SFoR. “Nearly every runner in our 5K fields
will be capable of running one of the twenty-four AnyRunner Prize
times, and we expect that scores of them will hit
those times.”

The key to winning a share of the $2,400 prize purse, however, is to be the
first to finish in one of the twenty-four AnyRunner
Prize Money䋢
times. In the Men‰Ûªs 5K, the twelve AnyRunner
Prize Money䋢
times for 2011 are: 15:19; 17:19; 19:19;
21:19; 23:19; 25:19; 27:19; 29:19; 31:19; 33:19; 35:19; and 37:19. In the
Women‰Ûªs 5K, the twelve AnyRunner Prize Money‰ã¢ times for 2011
are: 17:19; 19:19; 21:19; 23:19; 25:19; 27:19; 29:19; 31:19; 33:19; 35:19;
37:19; and 39:19.

With entries already received from thirteen states, and a limit of 800 in
each of the two 5K races, Oja expects the Festival‰Ûªs 5K race fields to fill
completely. “How cool is it for runners who‰Ûªve never even won an age group award
to have a chance to win $100?” he asks.

In addition to the Men‰Ûªs 5K and Women‰Ûªs 5K, SFoR events include the MVP
Health Care 3K Fun & Fitness Run, the Tops Friendly Markets Community Walk,
and the Fitness Forum/Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists Joint Replacement Run
& Walk. Participants in the various SFoR events range from area pre-school
children and their families to world-class age-group athletes as old as 93
competing in the 2011 USA Masters 5 km Championship.
