Mighty Medals Revealed for Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend
The inaugural Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend set the bar high with an epic ensemble of finisher medals for our Super Hero runners. This year, designers accepted their own mission to craft mightier medals and medallions, which included an additional race and challenge medal.
Our race for the tiniest runners calls for an Avenger of similar stature – Ant-Man. With the release of Marvel's "Ant-Man" this summer, designers found this half-inch hero to be the perfect fit for the runDisney Kids Races finisher medallion.
The Mighty Avenger, Thor, wields one of the most powerful weapons in the Marvel Universe –Mjolnir. Thor's iconic hammer is brought to life on this year's Avengers Super Heroes 5K medallion.
The inaugural Captain America 10K medal features our favorite patriotic Super Hero's iconic shield. Designers also incorporated Captain America's signature red, white and blue color scheme in the lanyard to complement the shield.
To close out the heroic weekend, runners will assemble for the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon where they will be awarded for completing the ultimate 13.1-mile journey. This extraordinary medal features the signature Avengers "A" as well as the symbols for Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow.
There is still time to put your skills to the test and join forces with Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the half marathon race. Reserve your spot today here.
Runners who will defy odds in the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge must stay tuned for the reveal of the inaugural medal. For more information on Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend and other runDisney events visit runDisney.com.
