Perks & Awards

Participant Perks

All pre-registered runners and walkers who pick up their numbers at packet pick up Nov. 20-21 will receive:

  • Berbee Derby cotton, long-sleeved Lands' End T-Shirt
  • Goody Bag stuffed with items donated by our generous sponsors

NOTE: If you pick up your race number on race day, we CANNOT guarantee you a shirt or a goody bag!


Results will be posted on by 6 p.m. on race day and awards will be available for pickup at Fleet Feet Madison starting Friday after the race.

We are going all out this year in celebrating 15 years of the Berbee Derby — we will be awarding the top finishers with custom medals. Not only, like in the past with our traditional categories, BUT we are adding a few new ones too! Start training and maybe you will get one of these custom commemorative medals.

• Top three male and female finishers overall
• Top male and female finisher per age group

• Top three teams (average time of first five finishers) (5k/10k)
• Largest corporate team
• Largest family/friend team 

Additional categories
• Top male and female wheelchair finishers (5K/10K)
• Oldest overall male (5k/10k)
• Oldest overall female (5k/10k)

NOTE: To be eligible for team awards, at least five members must be registered under the same race category. Teams are eligible to win under both race categories (10K and 5K) only if at least five members are registered under both race categories. If your team does not wish to compete for awards you still must have five team members but you are free to have these members in any or all race categories.
