2017 Most Improved Runner Program CALLING ALL STRIDERS!! Would you like some recognition for your hard work and training? By: Jody Geibl- MIR Program Coordinator The Most Improved Runner program will reward YOU based on your personal improvement over the past year. Annually, the Badgerland Striders provide members the opportunity to pat themselves on the back for their outstanding improved performances. These awards are presented at the annual Holiday Party. Members may enter more than one category, because we all know you have run more than one race or distance this year! To be eligible for prizes, you must be a member of the Striders and have volunteered at least once in the past 12 month period. DETAILS There will be separate awards for male and females. The winners are determined by percent improvement from 2016 to 2017. You may enter more than one distance category, but each entrant will receive only one award. If there are questions regarding your results, the committee reserves the right to make adjustments to ensure fair results.
