We have noticed some concern regarding the money distribution. The total prize money is set at $50000. Olamau race has set daily incentives of $2500, $1000, and $500 for the top 3 finishers of each day, whether male or female. That leaves $38000 of prize money left over this year. There were 15 male entries paid, even though only 14 participated, and 5 female entries. The pot was split according to the entries; 75% of the pot was given to the men because their entries were 3 times the size of the women's entries. We appreciate everyone's feedback and we will continue striving to make this one of the best races in the world. Mahalo!
