“I was pretty confident in my race strategy and I tried to keep the pressure on” running a 4:30 mile near the end, said Reichow, who runs for the Minnesota Distance Elite team and is a sales manager for the Fleet Feet Marathon Sports store in Minneapolis. “This ranks pretty high among my accomplishments. This is an iconic race, and it was super cool to hear people cheering my name on the course.”

For the wins, Joel Reichow and Maggie Montoya each collected Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon prize money of USD $3,000.


The total prize money for the 2023 Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon is $26,100.00 and will be delegated down to the top 10 finishers in the elite races.
