Building Your Custom Medals

Organizing an event is an arduous task, but when you see the smiling, exhausted faces of the finishers of your biking, running, or triathlon races, you’ll know that putting on an event that 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. 

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

You’ve spent hours coordinating race routes, planning starting and cutoff times, booking time-keeping companies, and organizing the nearly endless facets making up an event, that the last thing you need is for building your custom race pieces to be complicated. We include you in the designing process, guiding you through our multitude of customization options, and bringing your ideas to life in an efficient and cost-effective way.

You’ll start by sending us your logo, or elements of the race you’d like to incorporate into your sports running medal, and one of our professional artists will begin putting it all together in a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing fashion. After finalizing your artwork, our staff will walk you through a variety of customization options including the type of base metal you’d like to use, whether or not you’d like in inlay colors or textures, and if you’d like the metal to have specific shapes, thicknesses, or plating.

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 and Medallions for our racers. We have sixteen hundred and fifty women it's an all-women' triathlon that'll happen it's May 20th and we're having a great time.

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.
