2018 Great American River Run Medals Unveiled
The excitement for the 2018 Great American River Run Half Marathon and 5K continues to build with the reveal of both finisher medals this week!
The half marathon hardware is die cut and measures four inches in diameter. With much of the race course running paralell to the Mississippi River, the bright blue colors and wave designs are a nod to our River Run name. In addition, the skyline is a salute to the best city on the planet: Memphis!
The 5K medal is slightly smaller but will be awarded to every runner who crosses the finish line, whether running or walking. The dark purple backdrop pops with glitter and both the location and date are etched along the bottom line.
The 2018 race marks the event's third year and is set to return for a Saturday race day on May 26. Every runner also receives free entry into 901Fest, our one-day salute to all things Memphis. It's the perfect ending to our month-long celebration this Memorial Day weekend and registration is now open.
