So any of my followers know that this summer I participate in my local "Serres" of 5k races (with one 10k). I began running last summer (June 2009) and missed the first couple of races for the serres but did all the other races. This year your prize varied on how many races you completed. Here's the break down on prize levels:
Completion of at least 7 of the events in the series will allow you to receive a “Distinctive Serres Reward”. Ten completed events yield a “Pretty Serres Reward” and twelve or more, the “Totally Serres Reward”. Jackets, shirts, gloves, and hats are the planned rewards.
Last year as I stated there was only one prize of a windbreaker jacket as long as you completed so many races, which I did. At the "Run for the Pets 15k", the next to last race of the "serres" Rick, the director, stated that there was only 2 people that completed every single race~ hmmmmmm
Last year at the end of the last race, Rick called all participants of the "serres" up and just said a little something about everyone. This year they was letting people pick up their goods before the race, so I walked up to get my and the lady said "oh, I am sorry but you have to wait, Rick is giving yours out after the race". So after the race Rick started announcing how many people completed each reward level and then the "Totally Serres Reward". Are you serious? I was the ONLY person who completed EVERY SINGLE race in the Serres! I could not believe it, I thought there was 2 but it was only ME!! Now I can't wait till next year's "Serres"!!
The Rewards consisted of : A Long Sleeve running shirt, A Running Vest, Ear warmer and a Toboggan Hat!
