As they cross the finish line, their time is recorded and they draw 2 additional poker cards. Top male and female runners as well as the best poker hand will be recognized. Each runner receives a free Poker Run T-shirt and the chance to win great prizes. Free snacks and refreshments will be provided after the race. All proceeds benefit Tri4Schools.

****We do abide by state laws and regulations against gambling (Wis. Stats. Ch. 945); the winner of the best poker hand will only be recognized by being added to the award plaque and not by providing them with any additional prizes.  The winners of the poker hand can be part of the raffle, but they are not to be shown any favoritism because they had the best hand. The female and male race winners will be awarded the top prizes.*****
