Online PR News – 08-August-2012 – Tulsa, OK – Marathon & Beyond recently named Route 66 Marathon’s finisher medal as the best in North America for 2011. Each year a panel of Marathon & Beyond road race experts selects their choice of Top 25 best finisher medals in America. Marathon & Beyond panelist, Rachel Brown said; “Running a marathon is a substantial achievement; the medal should reflect that.”
In the three years since Marathon & Beyond first began publishing their Top 25 List, Route 66 placed second, third, and now first. “We fully understand how important a finisher medal is to runners, so it is just as important to us that we give them a great one. We’re proud of being voted number one this year after coming so close the last two years. Maxwell Medals and Awards does a tremendous job of developing our concepts into amazing medals that put us at the top of the list year after year,” explains Chris Lieberman.
Maxwell Medals & Awards Sales Manager Jon Scott says, “One of the best ways for Race Directors to attract runners to their events is by rewarding them with a great medal at the finish line. We work very hard to create a really cool medal for all of our customers.
“In addition to Route 66, so far, twenty-eight of our customers have made the prestigious, Top 25 list. The Ft. Lauderdale A1A Marathon placed number three in 2011 and earned the number one spot in 2010. Route 66 is the only event in the country to finish in the top three in as many years, and Ft. Lauderdale’s first place finish in 2010 gives our customers back to back wins, which is really something special.”
