The difference in prize money between the mens and womens categories is due to the lower amount of expected ELITE women participants. As this is our first OUREA competition we weren’t sure of the amount of participants for the OUREA Xtrem.

However, during the 3 stages of the OUREA 120, the ELITE women will compete for the same prize money as the ELITE men on the same stages ( top 5 ranking).

In future events we plan on adjusting the prize money for ELITE women in the OUREA Xtrem if we have a big turnout of female runners.
