  • Does anyone have pictures of these awesome medals?image
  • Best of mine was my first medal from the Longleat 10K last year. In the shape of a lion's head - fabulous, and also organised by 2:09 events.

    Sadly, this year's medal was naff to say the least - a bog standard use-anywhere medal, with race name & date engraved on the back image 

  • Disney by far:

  • Brooklands 10K

  • The run to the beat HM  medal (2009) was nice, runners legs that were also musical notes. I also like the Eastbourne HM one but didn't think much of the actual run!

     Brighton 10K is by far the worst one I've had. Really cheap looking.

     I love medals. I was so disappointed at the end of Hellrunner not to get one! It's the one thing I keep from all my races. Only one missing is Brighton Half 2009 which I somehow lost.....anyone who diesn't like medals got one of those knocking about they'd like to get rid of?!

  • Curses - can't see my photo. Will try again.

    Yep, the Run to the Beat 2009 was a nice medal
  • My Favourtite by far is the Birmingham one from 2010. Great detail on it and quite weighty.

    To the other extreme, Plymouth one last year was naff, Hope they are better this year.

    People say that the Tewkesbury one is supposed to be good. Hopefully if I complete, I'll see it for myself next Sunday image

  • Race the train medal look like a train image

  • Best one for me to date has to be the Hardwick X-Stream horse brass. Closely followed by Shakespeare 2011 (first ever marathon)

    Although while we're talking about medal i do get annoyed at sharing. Shakespeare has Half and Full on it. MK half just has Festival of running and is given to 10k'ers....

    Will post pics soon...
  • Some nice medals here, though they're nearly all American marathons: http://26point2medals.com/

  • Not sure about the best... but my worst by far was the 2008 Berlin Marathon, featuring a truly awful portrait of Haile Gebresellasie etched into it:

    Incidentally, I view medals largely as junk, but can't quite bring myself to chuck them out. Does anyone else just throw them away?

  • The dymock half marathon medal seems to have a load of 70's porn stars masquearding as runners on, (who drew the shorts on the runner on the far right with the black top / white shorts! image)

  • Increases a <a href="http://www.theevonywiki.com/Hero" title="Hero">hero</a>'s loyalty by 10 when rewarded, and is used for hero persuasion. More importantly, you need them for Promotion Advancement. Don't use your Rose Medals early in the game for anything but for Promotion Advancement.

    I think image

  • Please explain what: 'Increases a <a href="http://www.theevonywiki.com/Hero"; title="Hero">hero</a>'s  loyalty by 10 when rewarded, and is used for hero persuasion. More  importantly, you need them for Promotion Advancement. Don't use your  Rose Medals early in the game for anything but for Promotion  Advancement' actually means as I am totally confused?!!!

     Anyone got a pic of the Tewkesbury one as that sounds good?

  • I really liked the Lincoln 10k medal this year. The worst i have is last years Bridlington half, (It wouldnt looked out of place as a 1 mile kids fun run medal). Mind you after seeing that Gebresellasie medal id have to say that is the worse ive seen.
  • I was thinking the exact same thing after completing my first race, the BUPA London 10K. Which races do have the best medals? Glad someone else had the same thought process.

  • Great british 10k, indian queens half and bristol half are my favs this year.check them out @martyngringo on twitter
  • Disney medals are awesome.  I normally like the EMF ones but this years one was a bit phallic to say the least.  Edinburgh Rock n Roll HM medal is pretty tasty too.

  • all the rock and roll marathon series medals are pretty amazing, 

  • Nice edinburgh rock n roll medal.am signed up for two rock n roll halfs next year in san diego and seattle so hope medals stay high standard.saw pics for th rnr vegas run and its glow in the dark!american medals are the best and over the top!
  • The Royal Parks Half Marathon is my favourite so far, the medal is a wooden leaf shape.

  • best = Comrades (as featured on my profile pic)

    worst = Stroud half marathon 2012. A chunky, circular piece of wood on a ribbon.Looks like a fat digestive bisuit and is destined for the wood burner ...

  • A medal made of WOOD?

    But... but... it won't be shiny, it won't clink and clank with all the others .... you can't have a medal made of WOOD *harrumph*

  • image Girls and germs if you want a really good medal check this race out.
