The 5K is the first race for most runners.
It may be a fund raiser for a high school team or to help kids get swim lessons at the local YMCA.
Many local groups have 5K races on holidays such as Mother’s Day or the Fourth of July. Other popular themed 5K races are Turkey Trots and Jingle Bell Run races.
Local races are a good first race for a young person just starting out. I often see parents running with their young children. They always look like they are having a great time.
Every runner is excited to get their first race medal and look forward to that moment at the finish line.
However, most 5K races do not award finisher’s medals.
I created the My First 5K medal so every runner can receive their first 5K medal.
You can order one for your child, spouse or friend and make their first 5K a race to remember.
Even if the race you are running does not offer a medal, your child, spouse or friend can get a medal to celebrate and remember their first 5K race.
We include a bib sticker with each medal, so everyone will know this is the first 5K race for your runner.
We also offer a display frame for your My First 5K medal and race bib. The My First 5K Combo includes all three items at one great price. We ship them un-assembled so you can have a great race day experience and then mount your medal in a great looking frame when you get home.
If you have a group running such a Boy Scout Troop, group fitness program or your club’s Walk to Run program, inquire about special group pricing.
