Wheeling Their Way to New York Victory

Now, let’s not forget about our unstoppable wheelchair champions. While their prize money may not be as substantial as their running counterparts, they more than make up for it with their sheer determination and incredible bonuses:

  • Marcel Hug and Susannah Scaroni, the reigning wheelchair champions, will each receive $25,000 for their hard-earned victories.
