Divas® Running Series Unveils Innovative Medals

03/20/2017 - 16:56

MIAMI, FL -- The Divas® Running Series has unveiled finisher medals for 2017 featuring a design along with jewelry compatible with bracelets from well-known brands Pandora® and Chamilia®. Now finishers of all distances, half marathon and 5K, can display their achievement in jewelry form by wearing the charm. Rather than wearing the medal on race day alone, they can wear the charm for as long as they’d like.

If that isn’t enough, the Divas® medals will be presented to participants in custom, reusable Divas® jewelry pouches.

“Every race gives out a finisher’s medal but we wanted to give women a piece of jewelry. At a time that bracelets are so popular, charms describe different achievements, goals or just plain, look good. So every finisher, regardless of distance, will receive a charm to display proudly. Also, we have a few surprises coming regarding special edition charms which will be fun and pretty,” says Robert Pozo, CEO and Executive Race Director with Continental Event and Sports Management.

The Divas® Running Series has races all over the country as well as races in Puerto Rico and Canada. Registration also includes boas, tiaras, tutus, and bubbly. However, space is limited; interested participants are encouraged to register early to guarantee their spot. For more information, or to register, please visit
