Awards for 2nd and 3rd positions are also made to Ladies and Men.

Veteran (10 year categories), U20 and U23 awards are also available; the number of awards made depends on the number of members completing the competition in each age category. For the V70 and older categories awards are based on the best two out of the three races indicated by * above.
