Finished top 3 in a 1000+ finisher road race (low 15-min 5k, for perspective). Awards go to top-3 and various age groups. Post-race, RD advised that awards would be mailed out once results were finalized. The race was held in August 2017. I gave the RD 2 months before making an inquiry (Was my info lost? Anything needed on my end? Etc). No response. Since then, I've tried contacting every 3-4 weeks, with no response or acknowledgement whatsoever. Have always been exceedingly polite in my inquiries. (I don't have any social media accounts, but a friend made a post on the race FB page [which is updated hourly] and received no response.)
The race is being held again this summer. Assuming nothing happens and I keep getting ignored, I'm inclined to exact some kind of petty revenge. Thoughts? Nothing over-the-top and nothing that would interfere with any other runners, but something that would force the race to acknowledge that they messed up.
