- Special recognition to Conrad Roberts for running full race course at age 10 so was awarded the Clean Shooter medal in salute to his toughness in a 5k and final sprint to the finish along with good shooting....so we created a new age group for Conrad--The Extreme Youth Division! We look forward to seeing what you do in your next decade.
