Delaware Running Festival Releases Medal Design For 2022 Race

January 10, 2022

Corrigan Sports Aims to Celebrate the Participant’s Entire Journey and Those Who Helped Them Get to the Starting Line

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – A tradition that started in 2020 continues this year with finishers of the Delaware Running Festival receiving a medal that contains a removable Inspiration Coin. Participants are encouraged to keep their medal for themselves and share the magnetic coin with some who inspired them along their Delaware Running Festival journey. Past participants have shared their coin with a training partner, a mentor, a friend, or family member.

“We know it takes a lot of commitment from the participants and their support group to get them to race day, said Lee Corrigan, President of Corrigan Sports.  This is a small way to celebrate your entire journey and those who help you get there.”

The idea behind the design was inspired by long time Corrigan Sports supporter Sid Busch.  Sid is Navy veteran and runs selflessly on behalf of fallen soldiers.  Sid presents the medal he earns to the soldier’s family. Challenge coins are a long-honored military tradition that are shared and traded among units.   Our Delaware Medal melds these two concepts together.

The medal is the participants to keep and display proudly.  The Inspiration Coin is meant to be paid forward to a person or group who helped inspire the participant to achieve their life goals, such as running the race.

The 2022 Delaware Running Festival will be held April 24. In Wilmington, Del.  The race offers a marathon, half-marathon, 5k and, for the first time, a 10k.  This race is one of the few opportunities for aspiring members of the various 50-State running clubs to run in Delaware.  Registration is open now: www.delawaremarathon.org
