At all Tejas Trails events, every finisher gets a commemorative medal to honor your achievement. We go out of our way to think of fun, unique, hand-made, meaningful awards.
Some are made of metal. Some wood. Some are painted by children from a children's home. Some are bottle openers. They're all fun and you need one.
We always give belt buckles for 100km and 100 mile finishers, with special buckles for sub-24 hour 100 milers.
You can always expect at least Top 3 male and Top 3 female to be awarded.
As events grow, we spread out awards to Top 5 overall, then top 10 overall, top few Masters, then 10 year Age Group winners.
For USATF Championship races, awards are handed out in 5 year age group brackets as well as our usual Tejas Trails awards.
For the Tejas 250, Tejas 300, Tejas 400, and Capt'n Karl's series, there are special awards handed out uniquely for those accomplishments.
For anyone who completes 500, 1000, 1500 km or miles at the same event, we give away special fleeces for you to make others jealous with.
We also love giving special awards out as we see fit, whether it be for someone who slowed down to help a straggler accomplish their goal, someone who we know went through the ringer to get the race done, whoever had the most crashes, or a mom who ran/picked flowers/caught bugs with their little daughter the whole 10km, who knows what...
