Notes: Women must start as part of the women-only invitational start to be eligible for prize money in the open category. To be eligible for any NYRR member awards, an athlete must be a member in good standing of NYRR since September 17, 2018. NYRR member prize money will be determined by order of finish based on gun time. Eligible women competing in the women-only invitational start will be given priority for NYRR member prize money based on order of finish. If fewer than eight eligible NYRR members finish from the women-only invitational start, NYRR member prize money will be awarded based on the combined finish order of women from the women-only invitational start and the mass race, instead. Athletes who have been suspended for doping by a governing body are not eligible to participate in, and should not apply for entry in, NYRR races. Extenuating circumstances may be reviewed by the NYRR Race Director.
