PHOENIX - 12 Marathons in 12 Months - MEDAL & CERTIFICATE
Please note - This is a medal & certificate order (not a specific event) and it is for those who have completed 12 marathons within a 12 month period of time, or less.
Are you a 12 in 12'er ...?
It's a fantastic milestone - 12 marathons in 12 months (that's one a month for a whole year!) - and we think it should be celebrated with a suitably awesome medal so we've created the P12 - a two-tone burnt ember and antique silver medal of epic proportions. This is the first accolade in our set of multi-marathon awards. See also our 52in52 and 100in100.
So how does it work?
Well, first you need to complete 12 marathons within a 12 month period - no small undertaking.
Does this have to be one marathon per calendar month or can I do it in less time?
So, strictly speaking, and to keep this in line with our 52in52 and 100in100, then as long as you do your 12 marathons 'within' 12 months, then you can do them in any month - ie, you could do 3 in one month and then none for a couple of months. Or you could do all 12 in one month and you're done - ie it's got to be within a 12 month period or less .. And this can be any rolling 12 month period.
BUT - as this medal is very much aimed at those embarking on their multi-marathon journeys we do think it would be fun to set yourself the challenge on one in each calendar month for a year, but it is, of course, up to you.
But can you post me one, please?
The above being said, we realise that for some postage is the only option, so yes we can offer this, just indicate in the appropriate drop-down menu when you order.
And how do I get one when I've done the running bit?
All you need to do is order your medal and personalised certificate on our event entry system
You can do this in advance if you know your 12th marathon in 12 months is coming up so that we can give it to you in time for that event, or just wait till you've done the full 12.
I live abroad?
We also post abroad, including to the USA.
Do I need to join anything or order it months in advance of when I actually want it?
No - order it online and if we see you the very next day we'll give it to you - simple. We can turn around postage within 24 / 48 hours.
Can I get one if I did my 12 in 12 a while ago?
Do I need to submit a list of my 12 marathons in 12 months?
Please email your list to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do the rest. You'll hear back from us pretty quickly and we'll arrange to get you your medal and certificate.
Whilst we are not advocates of creating rules for the sake of rules, and then more rules to create exceptions to those rules, and then some extra rules to explain those rules, and then a couple more rules which even we don't understand, this is a serious undertaking and as such you have to do the running to get the bling. Which, of course, leads onto the 64 million dollar question. What counts as a marathon for P12 purposes and so what can I put on my 12 list?
Simple - we're using Marathon Club Ireland Rules.
We're going to keep this really simple and we're not going to try and reinvent the wheel, so we're using the MCI (Marathon Club Ireland) set of rules for what counts as a marathon. Why? Because we think they are the simplest, most rounded, most robust set of rules out there and at the end of the day they are centred around completing a 26.2 mile distance - the marathon!
For a full set of those rules - check out the MCI page and scroll down to point 11 : http://marathonclubireland.asocion.com/about-us-club-rules/
