Why do we wait for the last runner to finish before handing out awards?

We get this question often, and we understand that some of you fast runners may be waiting a while before getting your award. But here at Run for God, we have decided that EVERYONE should experience that magical finish line experience no matter what their time may be. For this reason, we hope that you will hang around and help us cheer every runner in, and be inspired by those who just a short time ago were saying I cant and are now saying I did.

 How are the proceeds used?

100% of the proceeds from our races are used in one of two ways.  The first is benefit Imagine No Malaria.  Another direct result of our race proceeds is to keep the day-to-day
