It is less than 100 days left to the Gdynia Half Marathon 2017. High time to see what finisher medals will look like!
- I regret we cannot give the medals to our athletes before the race – says Jasiek Szczepłek, press officer of the event. - Its design refers to a compass and we are pretty convinced it will show our runners the right direction towards the finish line. For us, it is also a clear sign that the right direction for the IAAF Half Marathon World Championships 2020 is "Direction: Gdynia" - he adds.
On the back side of the medal, there will also be a place to engrave the athlete's name and their finish times.
Gdynia Half Marathon will take place on March 19, 2017. There are more than 2.000 registered athletes at the moment and the registration is still open on www.SlotMarket.pl platform. A lower entry fee of 79 PLN is valid until December 31, 2016.
On January 6, online registration for relays is supposed to be launched, followed by the registration process for youth runs. Organizers say they still have some undisclosed cards in their hands. More information to follow soon.
