LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Little Rock Marathon unveiled its 2018 finisher’s medals as it makes preparations for another sell-out event, confirming the race is quickly reaching its participant limit.

The 16th Annual Little Rock Marathon Race Weekend, presented by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, is slated for March 2 – 4 in downtown Little Rock and benefits Little Rock Parks & Recreation.

“For many years, the Little Rock Marathon medals have set a standard in the marathon industry,” said Geneva Lamm, co-executive director of the Little Rock Marathon. “Our medals are an extraordinary keepsake that celebrates each participant’s finish.”

According to Lamm, the medal is a significant factor in the event’s growing popularity and sold-out races each year.

The 2018 family of finisher medals feature the race’s medieval theme, as well as the race director’s “smooch.” According to Pharis, the marathon medal is 8 ½ inches, weighs more than 2 ¼ pounds and has a built-in bottle opener at the top of the design.

The half marathon finisher’s medal is 4 ½ inches and weighs more than 11 ounces and also has a built-in bottle opener at the top of the design.
