Boilermaker 15K on July 10, 2022, and you take home the $10,000

If the Super Bonus is not won, it grows by $5000 the following year (e.g. $15,000 for the 2023 Circuit if the Super Bonus is not claimed at the 2022 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 the PRRO
Circuit races, with the Circuit Year starting and
finishing at the same event. 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.
2022 PRRO Circuit
began with the Lilac Bloomsday Run on May 5,
2019 (this is because the 2020 and 2021 circuits had to
be cancelled due to COVID-19) and will conclude with the Boilermaker 15K on July 10, 2022.
