Building Your Custom Medals

Organizing an event is arduous, but when you see the smiling, exhausted faces of your biking, running, or triathlon finishers, you'll know that putting on an event promotes health, wellness, and competition within your community is an entirely worthwhile endeavor. And because participants spend months logging miles, swimming laps, and scanning the Strava accounts of their prospective competitors leading up to your race, rewarding their efforts and commemorating their experiences by providing custom running medals is nothing less than appreciated.

10k Race Medal Designs

When your participants cross their finish lines, accomplish the goals they had set for themselves, and feel the elation that comes from achieving something they set their mind to, you can revel that you cultivated such an unforgettable experience. And when they hear their names called and you hand them their finisher medals or custom 10k medals and medallions, you can be confident you are handing them something that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

Custom Medallions Alaska Women's Gold Nugget Triathlon Video Review

I'm doing a testimonial, I'm Jen from Anchorage, Alaska, and this is the morning at the Alaska Women's Gold Nugget Triathlon. We're super excited about the day and wanted to give a quick little shout out for putting together some fabulous Medallions for our racers. We have sixteen hundred and fifty women it's an all-women's triathlon that'll happen it's May 20th, and we're having a great time.

Customer Review: "This is our fourth year that we've used the Monterey Company for, rather than a medallion, we decided to put together a little charm that the girls can wear he does bracelet or anklet or actually even we made it as a zipper pull, so I have some great medallions that we've done in past years, and Eric has basically figured out our artwork and put it onto a wonderful little logo and a great charm for us to have a great race so thank you, Eric, highly recommend your product and you guys have delivered time and time again, thanks so much."
