PHOENIX - It's a Numbers Game Marathon - Day 1
If there's something we like here at Phoenix Running (if you hadn't noticed) it's a BIG medal. We also like to collect our race numbers from events that we run in ourselves. When you've run a marathon or two with your race number flapping in the wind, it somehow feels right for it to be part of things. So that got us thinking - What about a race number that actually becomes part of your finishers' medal....... and there you have it - the first race number / medal combo.
Please note - to qualify for the MEGA medal, you have to COMPLETE BOTH DAYS MARATHONS. Each day is a separate event and you get one of our classic PHOENIX finishers medal if you just do one of the days. But if you complete both marathons, then on the second day your finishers' medal will be the MEGA - It's a Numbers Game Medal at a whopping 220m x 180mm x 5mm thick.
Q: And so - what is, 'It's a Numbers Game Marathon Double' and other than size, what makes this medal so special?
A: Well, Im glad you asked, so let me show you. So just to be really clear, this means that everyone will get one of our 80mm classic medals on Saturday 7th October, then those who come back and run again on Sunday get the MEGA Medal. Anyone who just comes along and joins us for Sunday, but didn't run on Saturday gets a classic medal. No exceptions, I'm afraid.
Don't forget - you now need to go and enter the 'It's a Number Game Marathon Day 2 on Sunday October 8th 2017
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
