We’ll be changing the design for 2019, but here’s feedback below from one of our runners of our beautiful volunteers making beautiful medals.


These are awesome ribbons. The best event medals I have received. Great colors and design! Thanks for the effort!

For runners who would prefer a longer lasting multi-purpose finisher’s award, a wooden coaster will be available for purchase during online registration.
