Big Finishers Medal. We are in the process of trying to order the biggest, heaviest medals that we can afford. The image to the left is simply a rough draft and will change.

Limited Quantities
We are hoping for up to 200 entrants. Due to the extremely high costs of these large medals, we are only ordering a total of 200 finishers medals.

If you are one of the first 200 entrants (bib # 1-200) you will be guaranteed a medal when you finish. As we all know, there will be several people who sign up for the race and not be able to attend. There will also be some who start but do not finish. We figure that 200 medals will be enough for about 220 entrants. So that means even if you are the 220th person to sign up, you still have a chance of getting a medal after you finish.

To see how many people have registered, click here

If you sign up late and your race # is above #200 there is a chance that you may have to wait for up to three weeks after the race as we will have to re-order medals.
