Louisiana Marathon Medal – 2012

Inaugural Louisiana Marathon Medal (2012)

The inaugural Louisiana Marathon took place on January 15, 2012 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The race had a great turnout for a first year event and seemed to be extremely well put on.

Here is a look at the finisher’s medal from the Louisiana Marathon.

It’s rather simply, no fancy bells or whistles, but is well done with the footprint being composed of a cypress tree, the state tree of Louisiana, within it.

October-2012-Best-Medal

VOTE: Best Race Medal – October 2012

There were 60+ medals submitted to the Bling Case in October! What a month! I had no idea October would be such a popular race month. Let me tell you, it was hard to narrow it down. The best I could do was narrow it down to 25 medals. I chose them because they either were great representations of their race (like the Hershey Half Marathon Medal) or they had a unique shape (like the Yellowstone-Teton 100 Mile Buckle), or they were unique (like the Showdown Half Marathon Medal that let the participants choose the color of their medal), or they were just plain fun (the Halloween medals especially)! Good luck picking a favorite! I have no idea which one I’m going to vote for yet.

Anyway…the medal chosen as the Best Race Medal for October 2012 will be included in the contest for the Best Race Medal of 2012 at the end of the year. Oh, and the September Best Medal 2012 Vote is still going on so you have 2 more weeks to cast your vote for your favorite September medal if you haven’t done so already.

The Best Race Medal winners so far this year:
