Medals for Mom?

If Mom or the kids are running their First 5K on Mother’s day, make sure they get a medal. The My First 5K medal is exclusively for first time 5K runners. It isn’t for 2nd or 10th time 5K runners.

If someone you know is running their first 5k road race, get them something to remember their big moment.

Run well my friends, and Happy Mother’s Day!
