I struggled to think of an idea, but i thought of something slightly trivial that may count as a “token reward” that happens within my training group.

During a group sprint session we may race over 80/100m, obviously some athletes are slower than others so we are given suitable handicaps (EG; the slower athlete may have a 10m head-start), this helps to ensure everyone remains motivated. The slower athlete is motivated to not let the faster athletes catch them and the faster athletes are motivated by closing down and catching the others. The coach will often say the athlete who wins the most races will get a reward, maybe something like a free coffee!
