The Marine Corps Marathon has selected Always Advancing to produce the finisher medals for their 2012-2017 events. The partnership, which began with the Marine Corps Historic Half on May 20, will include all events put on by the Marine Corps Marathon.
We were introduced to Always Advancing at the London Marathon expo in April 2011. Our upcoming junior aquathlon for October 2011 required a great medal for the 8-15 year old competitors that not only stood out against other off the shelf medals they may have received at other events; but also needed to highlight our title sponsor in an attractive way.
An iTaB is an engraved insert which fits neatly into the recessed box area on the back of a finisher’s medal, detailing the athlete’s name, finish time and finishing position to create a valuable, lasting memento.
“Always Advancing produces a high quality, distinct medal that is sure to be well received by our runners and triathletes who compete in all our races,” said John Mathews, President, Eident Sports. “Our participants take pride in completing our races and proudly display their medals signifying their accomplishments.”
