No awards are given for top finishers in each heat.

For example, a 41-year-old male could run in the Elite Heat and be eligible for overall, masters, or M40-44 age category. Another example is: a 26-year-old female could run in the Women Under 40 heat and win a top 3 award if her time was fast enough.
