Second place will receive $5000 and third place $2500. Not a fast runner? - the team ranking results from the top two male and two female finishers on the team and alumni teams that send 10 people to run in the race receive $100 and another $100 for each 10 runners after that.

A special alumni tent will be set up, which will be a great opportunity for groups to meet each other. If interested, please contact Bill Pegram at wmpegram@comcast.net or 703-486-0952. You can find more information about the event at www.salliemae10k.org.
