Finisher Medal | New Years Double Challenge Plate | Race Shirt | Personalized Bib
For each day’s event, every finisher will receive a medal upon completion. Yes, even the 5K finishers will receive a medal! Very few races out there give a medal to those in the 5K, but we should celebrate these active moments! The 5K finisher medal is smaller than the half and full marathon medal.
Each day’s medal will refer to that day’s event – the New Year’s Eve event or New Year’s Day event. The ribbon also specifies the distance completed.
Each medal has a flush-mounted magnet on the back of it. Why? Because you’ll want to do two days’ worth of events to earn the New Years Double Challenge Plate to house your medals!
The Challenge Plate design is typically released to the public on our Facebook page a few months before the race, but from past years, this year will continue our trend of high quality medallions for participants.
Our standard Challenge Plate is hefty and huge. Last year's was a 5 1/2" wide, 5mm thick circular medallion. This Challenge Plate is earned by doing at least a half marathon each day (combinations are double halfs, double full marathons, and half one day and full the other day). Each day's half or full marathon medal will attach into the plate with flush-mounted magnets on the back of the medal.
The 5K Challenge Plate is for those who do the Double 5Ks. It is a smaller version of the larger Challenge Plate for the longer distances. Each day's 5K medal will attach into the plate with flush-mounted magnets on the back of the medal.
Participants can choose to do the Double Double - Double 5Ks (which are before the start of the half and full marathons each day) followed by the half or full marathon each day. Those individuals will take home 4 medals and 2 Challenge Plates when the two days are all done!
ALL entrants (even the 5k) will receive a technical dry-wicking running shirt with men’s and women’s sizing for EACH DAY registered. So registered for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day means two technical running shirts!
Just about all other 5Ks out there give out unisex cotton t-shirts, but we want to provide an extra special experience for everyone, so everyone gets a nice technical shirt and every finisher gets a medal!
Shirt size is guaranteed. We allow shirt size swaps New Year's Day after packet pickup closes from the packets that were not picked up.
Race bibs will have the race logo. If registered by November 1st, your name will also be personalized onto your bib!
This means spectators can cheer you on by name. It's a huge boost mentally out there on the race course!
