The medals handed out to participants in the upcoming Route 66 Marathon in Tulsa are so nice, they get their own clip:
According to the event:
“When designing our finisher’s medals, we always have our participants in mind. Whether they run or walk their perseverance and dedication to training are the same. We wanted to design a medal that is worthy of their efforts, while honoring the history of Route 66 embodying the art deco style of Tulsa,” said Kim Hann, Assistant Executive Director of the Williams Route 66 Marathon.
The 2011 medals, patterned after Cadillac hood ornaments from the 1940s, were honored as the best marathon medals in the country.
The Route 66 Marathon is set for Nov. 17-18.
