I believe that every runner deserves a finisher's medal for their first race.
This summer most of our races have gone virtual, but your first time runner can still get a finisher's medal.
If you are running a virtual 5K with your kids, spouse or a friend make it special with a medal.
Add some of that race excitement when you run a virtual 5K in your neighborhood.
A finisher's medal allows your runner to feel some of that race excitement and have a medal they will cherish for years.
We now offer the My First 5K medal with "2020 Finisher" printed in white or pink on the ribbon.
The summer of 2020 is sure to present a variety of challenges.
Many activities and events have been cancelled. Training for a virtual 5K with your kids gives you a healthy activity you can do close to home.
In addition to getting everyone out of the house once in a while, it gives the kids something to look forward to.
Not sure if your child is ready to run or train for a 5K? Check out my post, "What Distance Can My Child Run" for some tips and guidance.
I've given a My First 5K medal to plenty of adults as well. For them the medal is a symbol of achievement or a first of many finisher's medals to come.
Some runners probably never thought they'd run a 5K race, but here they are with a finisher's medal around their neck!
Some people love to collect running medals and they look forward to getting one at every race. Many 5Ks do provide a finisher's medal for everyone, but not all of them do.
With a My First 5K Medal your runner can get a medal at a virtual race or at a regular race.
