The four fastest times of their team members will be combined for the team’s total. The team with the fastest combined time will win the award and will have it to display in their station until the next year's run, at which time the award will be transferred to the next winning team. Win it again, and the team keeps it for another year!

For other first responders:  The Stephen G Siller Heroes Award: This award will be won by a team of first responders (law enforcement, EMS/emergency responders, and/or military) with 5 participants running in uniform; the four fastest times of their team members will be combined for the team’s total.  The team with the fastest combined time will win the award and have it to display in their station or office until the next year’s run, at which time the award will be transferred to the next winning team.  Like the Steel Award, if the same team wins again, the team keeps it for another year!
