RunNB Provincial Championships
In 2006, RunNB introduced the provincial championship event program to encourage runners to participate in different events and crown a champion in each of the five distances: marathon, half-marathon, 10 kilometre, 5 miles and 5 kilometre. The winner of each event will be declared the winner of the Provincial Championship. In addition, if the winner is not a New Brunswicker, the first finisher who is a New Brunswicker will be crowned the New Brunswick Provincial Champion. RunNB awards cash prizes of $200, $125 and $50 to the top three New Brunswick finishers in each of the men's and women's provincial championship races. A person is considered a New Brunswicker if they meet either of the following conditions at the time during which the record-establishing performance is achieved:
a) is a resident of and has domicile in New Brunswick
b) resides outside of New Brunswick but had domicile in New Brunswick for a minimum of five years prior to the record-establishing performance.

What does New Brunswick residency mean?
The athlete has a place to live in New Brunswick.
What does it mean to have New Brunswick domicile?
The athlete has their main home in New Brunswick and identifies this place as their home. For example if a person is away at college, they may have two residences (one at college and one in New Brunswick) but they may still identify New Brunswick as their 'home' and return to New Brunswick during vacations.
Names of winners are placed on the Virtual Trophies.
