Medal-display kit will be among awards for March 23 half marathon, 10K and 5K
CHICAGO, March 13, 2019 – Adding to its growing list of race partnerships, Kudos is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Phoenix Frontrunners’ Pride Run Phoenix on Saturday, March 23. As part of the agreement, third-place finishers of the half marathon, 10K and 5K will receive Kudos’ patent-pending medal-display kit.
The Kudos Coaster Plus is a do-it-yourself coaster and kit designed to display race medals. Users place their medal of choice inside the coaster and can switch it out with others at their convenience. More compact and less expensive than wall-mounted frames, the product combines form and function to securely fit most medal shapes and sizes, and can also be used to display race photos or other cherished keepsake items.
“One of the incredible things about the running community is how supportive and inclusive it is, regardless of age, race, gender identity or sexual orientation,” said Kudos President and CEO Ryan DeBoer. “The Kudos team is proud to be LGBT allies, and we’re excited to help Pride Run Phoenix finishers be proud of and celebrate their achievement.”
Phoenix Frontrunners notes the Pride Run Phoenix half marathon, 10K and 5K are fast, flat street courses perfect for a PR. Participants run, walk and wheel through central Phoenix using downtown city streets and Central Avenue. Learn more and register at www.priderun.phxfr.org.
“Pride Run Phoenix celebrates the values of #IDEA—inclusion, diversity, equality and acceptance,” said Race Director Dan Shabra. “We’re pleased to associate with a company like Kudos that shares those values, and we’re excited to offer their Kudos Coaster Plus to participants as a great way to remember their Pride Run Phoenix experience.”
The Kudos Coaster was created as a better way to store and feature race medals. Over the last six years, DeBoer developed the product into its current form which includes a clear, removable top and a polyurethane base providing stability and grip. Colored Tru-Fit inserts allow users to pick a backdrop that complements their medal, and the inserts can be removed to accommodate medals of varying thicknesses.
Kudos, a registered trademark of RLRD, LLC, helps people share, preserve and display their memorable accomplishments with pride. The company approaches old things in new ways by producing inexpensive, quality-built products that combine form and function. For more visit www.kudos2u.com.
