The above criteria applies to both Male and Female runners, across all age groups.
The Gun Time (not the Chip Time) will be considered for the allocation of the medals according to the above mentioned cutoffs, which means that the Runner’s time starts right after the starting gun goes off and stops when he/she crosses the finish line.
In other words your Chip time will usually appear faster than your Gun time, unless you cross the starting mat at exactly the same time as the gun goes off (possible only if you are an Elite athlete standing right at the front of the lineup in Seeding area A !!!)
Special Finisher's Medals
Starting in 2016, we were delighted to announce a Special Medal for runners who would be finishing their 5th Half Marathon at Satara (having run in 4 out of 4 previous editions)
There were 38 such proud recipients of the 5 TIME FINISHER MEDAL in 2017. Henceforth every year, this special medal will be awarded to those who will finish their fifth Half marathon (having finished any 4 previous editions of the Satara Hill Half Marathon as per our records)
This special medal has been dedicated to our very own Mr Shankar Natha Pawar, a 96 year old Veteran Runner from Satara. He is an inspiration to all runners & we are proud to dedicate this medal to his legacy.
