Bad weather caused some of the runners to be diverted to a shorter distance. The really fast and really slow runners (that took the 6am start) where able to finish the official 26.2 mile distance.

The overall winner was Mark Chepses in 2:25:42 and the overall female winner was (RIF #34) Leah Thorvilson in 2:42:39, her fifth Little Rock Marathon win.

Little Rock Marathon Medal (2013)

This is the seriously monstrous bling the finishers of the Little Rock Marathon received on March 3, 2013 in Little Rock, Arkansas!

This medal is huge! And sparkly. It is colorful and pretty and I love the horseshoe and the “Lucky” but is it too big? Is bigger always better? Here are couple more pictures of the medal along with one showing the difference between the marathon medal and the half marathon medal:

2012 Little Rock Marathon – Massive Finisher’s Medal

Little Rock Marathon Medal (2012)

Here is a sneak peak at the 2012 Little Rock Marathon medal. The race will be held on March 4, 2012.  This year is the 10th anniversary of the race.

The Little Rock Marathon is a very popular marathon in the South and has won several awards over the past few years.

However, this is by far the tackiest medal I’ve ever laid eyes on.  I know that is partly by design but this thing is Liberace gaudy.  The mirror ball within Thor’s shield is a spinner.

Am I being too harsh on this piece of bling? Leave a comment with your thoughts.

We’ve heard rumors about the Little Rock Marathon medal, but now we have photos of the 2011 version to back up the claims of how massive this piece of bling actually is.

This medal 7 3/4″ long and 5″ wide. It weighs 1.5 pounds and the earth/globe spins like your cousin’s rims.  See video of the ‘spinner’ in action HERE.
