Previous Year Winners

NCTRaces: Palmer's awards "traveling staffs" and following year entries to overall winners in each distance.  Those overall winners are required to bring (or make sure it gets to the race somehow) the staff back to defend their title or pass it on.  The free entry that overall winners get can be used for any distance, but can not be transferred to another runner.
