    Can people post the coolest looking medals you have gotten for completing a Marathon? I would love to see what the Boston, New York, Chicago and Disney World medals look like. I know the Flying Pig one is pretty cool. Anyone have the one from Columbus?

        Wow those are pretty cool. I heard they give different medals at that race depending on what you run. Is that true?

          I think my fav medal (will post a picture later) is from the Virginia Beach Rock and Roll Half Marathon. It's shaped like a sandpail, very colorful Smile
          2009: BQ?
            Ah, here it is!

              I dunno, but I really want a Flying Monkey medal. None of the ones I have are particularly exciting. I like the BIG musical note medal that you get from one of the Country Music/Rock n Roll combos.

                I don't know if it is the coolest but it is my favorite because of all the hard work and previous marathons required to obtain it!

                  Imminent Catastrophe

                    From the Blue Ridge Mountain Masters 50k trail run. Not really a medal, but it's useful! I drink coffee from it every day!

                      This web page pretty much documents all the running medals in the USA.

                      If not, send him your photo and he will document them.

                              All my marathon medals have been pretty cool... but I am partial to the Flying Pig with the little pig butt on the back. Big grin
