Best one for me to date has to be the Hardwick X-Stream horse brass. Closely followed by Shakespeare 2011 (first ever marathon)

Although while we're talking about medal i do get annoyed at sharing. Shakespeare has Half and Full on it. MK half just has Festival of running and is given to 10k'ers....

Will post pics soon...

Some nice medals here, though they're nearly all American marathons: http://26point2medals.com/

Not sure about the best... but my worst by far was the 2008 Berlin Marathon, featuring a truly awful portrait of Haile Gebresellasie etched into it:

Incidentally, I view medals largely as junk, but can't quite bring myself to chuck them out. Does anyone else just throw them away?

The dymock half marathon medal seems to have a load of 70's porn stars masquearding as runners on, (who drew the shorts on the runner on the far right with the black top / white shorts! )

Increases a <a href="http://www.theevonywiki.com/Hero" title="Hero">hero</a>'s loyalty by 10 when rewarded, and is used for hero persuasion. More importantly, you need them for Promotion Advancement. Don't use your Rose Medals early in the game for anything but for Promotion Advancement.

Please explain what: 'Increases a <a href="http://www.theevonywiki.com/Hero" title="Hero">hero</a>'s  loyalty by 10 when rewarded, and is used for hero persuasion. More  importantly, you need them for Promotion Advancement. Don't use your  Rose Medals early in the game for anything but for Promotion  Advancement' actually means as I am totally confused?!!!

 Anyone got a pic of the Tewkesbury one as that sounds good?

I really liked the Lincoln 10k medal this year. The worst i have is last years Bridlington half, (It wouldnt looked out of place as a 1 mile kids fun run medal). Mind you after seeing that Gebresellasie medal id have to say that is the worse ive seen.

I was thinking the exact same thing after completing my first race, the BUPA London 10K. Which races do have the best medals? Glad someone else had the same thought process.

Disney medals are awesome.  I normally like the EMF ones but this years one was a bit phallic to say the least.  Edinburgh Rock n Roll HM medal is pretty tasty too.

all the rock and roll marathon series medals are pretty amazing,

The Royal Parks Half Marathon is my favourite so far, the medal is a wooden leaf shape.

best = Comrades (as featured on my profile pic)

worst = Stroud half marathon 2012. A chunky, circular piece of wood on a ribbon.Looks like a fat digestive bisuit and is destined for the wood burner ...

A medal made of WOOD?

But... but... it won't be shiny, it won't clink and clank with all the others .... you can't have a medal made of WOOD *harrumph*
