In the guide to the Rock n Roll Liverpool race medals yesterday I only included the heavy medal for doing two Rock n Roll races in one year but I thought you might like to see the rest. So, here’s a look at all of the current 2017 bonus medals you can earn by completing Rock n Roll races this year.
First off, the heavy medals. In order from 2 to 10 races with the elusive 15 race Hall of Fame medal at the end. So run two Rock n Roll half/fulls in a year and get Double Beat, three gets you Rock Trio, four Groupie and so on.
You do need to register each calendar year for Heavy Medals so don’t forget. You can register by clicking here. In the UK the medals are posted to you a month or so after each qualifying race.
Where Rock n Roll have race weekends with different races on different days there is generally always a Remix Challenge. Complete races both days and you get the extra Remix medal as well as the distance specific medals. It’s often a 5k on the Saturday followed by a half marathon on the Sunday sometimes with a 10k/marathon/fun run option but it differs for each location. Nashville for example has a mile race on the Thursday followed by a marathon, half marathon and 5k on the Saturday. Complete the mile and then any of the Saturday races and you’ll get the Nashville Remix medal.
Quite a few Remix medal designs have been released including Dublin and Las Vegas.
Each year there are a number of different bonus medals offered under the Limited Edition heading.
The World Rocker of course is on the list and can be earned by completing a half or full marathon in two different countries. Next up is the Beach to Beach medal for those attending both Virginia Beach and San Diego races this year. You can get the Bucket List medal for completing both San Francisco and Brooklyn and the final medal is for running any three Rock n Roll marathons in the year. The Marathon Challenge medal is so great that it actually got me considering adding more marathons to the race diary this year.
So there you go, these are all the blinging extras you can get. There are a few other race specific medals (Such as Liverpool’s Encore medal with the scary lady) but these are the main ones and if you’d like any further details just click here.. I’m off to stalk the Rock n Roll tour stop list now so enjoy. 🙂
