This figure is a rough estimate at this time. As we get closer to the race date, we will have a more accurate picture of our expenses. Also at this time, conservatively assuming that only 10 team will register at an average of $280/team…..after estimated expenses, our purse as of 3/16/15 is $2,400. If 20 teams register, the purse would be $4,000.
This can only go up as we get more entries and sponsors.
Other Prizes and Giveaways
Besides the pro $$, there will be a few giveaways. Check this page periodically for updates.
