The Best Damn Race series has awesome medals for the 2019 season. Here's your sneak peek for the Safety Harbor races on February 2nd!
Each medal has unique characteristics like textured sand and stained glass features. But the really big deal is the 3-dimensional sand globe on the half marathon medal! It's a clear dome attached to the front of the medal — with real sand inside it. That's unique tropical bling!
