|RunNB Provincial Championships|
In 2006 Run New Brunswick introduces "Provincial Championship" events, to crown a provincial champion in each of five distances: marathon, half-marathon, 10 kilometer 5 mile and 5 kilometer. Provincial Championships are typically awarded for a minimum of two years to established events that have demonstrated a level of excellence.
The winner of each event will be declared the winner of the Provincial Championship. In addition, if the winner is not a resident of New Brunswick, the first finisher who is a resident of New Brunswick will be crowned the New Brunswick Provincial Champion. A resident of New Brunswick is a person who has a valid New Brunswick Driver's Licence or has proof of a resident in NB.
A Provincial Championship were announced during the Race Directors Workshop on February 16, 2008 in Moncton. The Provincial Championship are awarded to a race organizer for a two-year period.
In addition to any prize or prize money awarded by the race organizer, RunNB will award prize money to the top three for each male and female winners from New Brunswick. Prize money amount are as follow:
First place - $80.00
Second place - $60.00
Third place - $40.00
Total - $180.00 for men plus $180.00 for women x five events = $1800.00
RunNB will also award double the normal Superseries points for each Provincial Championship. Runners who are eager to collect Superseries points will therefore be more interested in competing in a Provincial Championship event.
Names of winners are placed on the Virtual Trophies.
