Win one of the 5 circuit races during the 2017-18 circuit year -- 2018 Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Half Marathon; 2017 EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler; 2017 Boilermaker 15K; 2017 Lilac Bloomsday Run; or the 2017 Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile -- PLUS the PRRO Championship race presented by Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile on April 2, 2018, and you take home the $10,000
PRRO Super Bonus (this is split if eligible male and female win the PRRO title in the same year). When the purse is won, the PRRO Super Bonus resets the next year to $10,000. If the Super Bonus is not won, it grows by $5000 the following year (e.g. $15,000 for the 2018-19 Circuit if the Super Bonus is not claimed at the 2017-18 PRRO Championship).
Event Championís Bonus
The winners of each individual PRRO Circuit event will receive a
$1500 bonus if they do not win the PRRO Championship but do finish in places 2-10 at the PRRO Championship. The
PRRO Individual Event Championís Bonus is cumulative (e.g., if an athlete wins two current circuit events, he or she would be eligible for a $3000 PRRO Event Championís Bonus at the PRRO Championship). These bonuses are paid in addition to any prize money won at the PRRO Championship. Note: Any eligible athlete who wins the PRRO Super Bonus at the PRRO Championship is not eligible for the PRRO Individual Event Champion's Bonus.
PRRO Championship Prize Money
If the male and female winners of the PRRO Championship have not won any of the events on that year's circuit, they will win $2500 as the PRRO Circuit champions in addition to the prize money offered by the PRRO Championship host event.
PRRO Championship and Circuit Year
The PRRO Circuit Championship will rotate among four PRRO Circuit races, with the Circuit Year starting and finishing at the same event (the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Half Marathon will not serve as the PRRO Championship race because it offers only U.S. prize money). The Championship event will serve as a PRRO Championship qualifier the first time it is held and will host the PRRO Circuit Championship the second time it is held.
