Portland Marathon Medal (Close-Up Front – Portlandia) 40th Anniversary

40th Anniversary Portland Marathon Medal (2011)

Here is the BEAUTIFUL finisher’s medal from the 2011 Portland Marathon that took place on October 9, 2011 in Portland, Oregon.

The 2011 edition was the 40th anniversary of the famed marathon, and race organizers made sure to embolden the historic date on the back of this gold medal (see photo below).

The front of the medal has the word ‘Portlandia’ at the top, with stars circling the upper edge of the medal. The center of the medal is an engraved image of Portlandia.  To the right of her is the word ‘Finisher’ along with the roman numerals MMXI (2011).

Per Wikipedia:

Portlandia is a sculpture by Raymond Kaskey located above the entrance of Michael Graves’ Portland Building in downtown Portland, Oregon, at 1120 SW 5th Avenue. It is the second-largest copper repoussé statue in the United States, after the Statue of Liberty.

WOW! What a hot piece of medal! It feels very olympic-ish!  One of the best medals of 2011 for sure.
