Always Advancing Congratulates
The Marathon & Beyond Medal Winners

2013 Marathon & Beyond Top 25

For the 2013's Marathon and Beyond Top 25 Always Advancing is proud to hold the #4 spot with the Marine Corp Marathon as well as the #7 spot for the Portland Marathon.  In addition to the Top 25 Always Advancing received Honorable Mention for Gopher Attack, the OC Marathon and the Providence Rhode Island Marathon.

Outside the US to our neighbors in the North, Always Advancing produced the Quebec Marathon Medal which was chosen as the Top Canadian Medal as well as Toronto, Ottawa and Calgary which were honorable mentions.



Always Advancing, the premier provider of finisher medals and awards, is happy to celebrate in the accomplishment of Marathon & Beyond’s recent announcement of the Top 25 Marathon Finisher Medals for 2012.

“As a company that takes pride in customer service and top quality design, we are pleased to have helped 7 events reach the Top 25 and honorable mention in 2012,” said Chris Seiler, president of Always Advancing.

Les Smith from Portland Marathon was very pleased with this recent announcement: "We are very proud of this high honor; our thanks go to Chris Seiler and his company Always Advancing for helping us produce our medals.  And this inspires us to do as well for our upcoming event on October  6th."

“Obviously, our primary goal is to provide a medal that athletes can be proud to display as a memento of their achievement. It is something that we strive for on the onset of our relationship. By working to understand the goals of the event and building lasting relationships with events, we have found that we can work with them to create something that they take pride in presenting to their athletes. We are happy to play a role in their achievement” Seiler noted.

In 2011, Always Advancing produced 5 medals that were recognized and in 2012 that number moved to 7, with Marine Corps Marathon being #2 and the Portland Marathon taking top honors. Rounding out the list were Chicago Marathon (#19), Missoula Marathon (#20), Atlantic City Marathon (#25) and the Ottawa and Toronto Marathons getting honorable mention.
