The One MIle is the RRCA Arizona State One Mile Championships, with a total of $2,366 in incentive-based prize money. The prize money and the RRCA state championships are only for those running in the Open and the Masters divisions. Thus, the tutu, high school, FitKidz, and Battle of the Badge divisions are not eligible for prize money. However, the winning team in the Battle of the Badges as scored by standard cross country rules, will have $250 donated on their behalf to the charity of their choice.
The Road Runners Club of America will provide special RRCA Championship Medallions to the first place Men’s and Women’s finishers in Open, Masters (Over 40), Grand Masters (Over 50), and Super Grand Masters (Over 60). The winners in these divisions will be from the fastest times run all night. So, if a Master or Grand Master runner runs in the Open division, his or her time will count towards the Masters or Grand Masters category. Same holds true in reverse: for example, if a men's Masters athlete has the overall fastest time for the night, he would win the Open awards and the Masters award, plus the consequent prize money. Thus, like in track meets, athletes should run through the finish line because they are competing not only in their heat but in both Open and Masters divisions.
