At the end of the calendar, in December, the top 10 of the Asia Trail Master points ranking will receive prizes. The runner (man/woman) who scored the most points in 2017 will be crowned as the 2017 Asia Trail Master champion, or just short the 2017 Asia Trail Master.
The male and female champion will receive USD 1.000,- in cash.
The rest of the top 10 will receive plenty of sponsor prizes, including lots of media attention which in turn can lead to sponsorships. Being high-ranked also puts you in the spotlight of race organisers, who may be keen to have you in their races at beneficial conditions.
During the year, there will be several other competitions during events in which prizes can be won.
