Winter 5K season has begun
Race dates have been set and registration is open for Winter 5K races.
I have been getting back into racing and races are getting back to normal with increasing numbers of runners showing up at the start line.
If you are taking your runner to their first 5K this winter, make sure they get a finisher’s medal. Most races award medals to the top finishers only.
All first time runners want to bring home a medal and now they can bring home the My First 5K medal .
I still remember how cool it was to get my first medal. It was like being inducted into The Runners Club!
The My First 5K Medal is just like the medals you get at many races, except that it is for first time 5K runners.
For less than the cost of a pizza you can get a medal for any 5K that your new runner decides to run.
In-person 5k races made a big come back in 2022, and 2023 should be even better.
There is probably a 5K race near your home almost every weekend.
Training for a 5K is a great way to spend quality time with your child and help them burn off some of their anxieties.
A few casual runs after dinner and on a weekend day should get your child across the finish line.
Not sure if your child is ready to run a 5K or how to get them started at an appropriate level? 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 at local 5K races. For them the medal is a symbol of achievement or a first of many finisher’s medals to come.
And all of them have been thrilled to put that medal around their neck!
Here are what some of our customers have to say about their My First 5K medal.
Some never thought they’d run a 5K, but here they are with a finisher’s medal around their neck!
With a My First 5K Medal your runner can get a medal at any race they choose.
