As shallow (and tragic!) as this might sound, I do love an unusual finisher medal, if for no other reason than I like to decorate my banisters with them. Which events have given you the best ones? 10k/half marathons are as far as I go!

That's your point of view - I am an ex-competitive athlete where I have competed for medals at international level. Now I'm old and slow, mass participation events is where it's at for me and I like them as souvenirs.

from today's wimbledon half. I like this one more than the option of a tennis racquet medal!

A medals thread ... I do like a medals thread.

My favourites include the Eden Project Marathon and the Indian Queens Half Marathon ... the latter can be seen at the front down below, round the neck of my alter ego.

The best- by far- is the Disney Marathon complete with moving parts!

As far as "art" is concerned the Rome Marathon will take some beating.

that Wimbledon one I was going to say, amazing!

28/07/2014 at 13:42

Yes, I like that one too. Must check out that event and do it

giants head marathon.medals are really individual and worth having........

 The long course weekend ones last year were amazing.3 different medals for the three different events and they could be locked together like a jigsaw

This year's Outlaw medal incorporated a bottle opener, which can only be a good thing

The Reading Half was a good'un this year?

The Up Tow Down Flow are unusual with their ink blot format.

The Rock and Roll medals are always bling.

The events I've done organised either by Dr Rob (http://www.trionium.com/) or Events to Live (http://www.eventstolive.co.uk/) have been blingtastic.

The Hurt - the medal like the run, is simple, pure pain! With loads of free chocolate brownies at the end so it makes it all worth while!

Walt Disney World's Marathon weekend do some interesting medals. Chunky, clunky and highly Disneyfied, if that's your kind of thing (...that's my kind of thing).
