This Medal hanger is a one of a kind
The Boston Athletic Association, Boston Marathon® logo, with its distinctive and symbolic Unicorn may be the most recognizable sporting logo in the World. Less than 1/10 of 1% of the general population will ever run a marathon. From that elite company, when you can then add the Boston logo to your Race Resume, Race Jacket, to your Technical Tee or even on a Sleek Medal Display, you are the cream of the road racing crop.
Display your Boston Medals with pride. You earned it!
How did we create this Medal Display for you…
Blue Diamond Athletic Displays innovator, Ken who is a design/manufacturing engineer of 25 years is also an avid runner. Who to date has completed 16 Marathons and is working on number 17. Like the dreams of many marathoners, Ken’s goal back when he started running marathons was to qualify for Boston. Around marathon number four, it became apparent that he would eventually qualify for Boston Marathon. Once he qualified he wanted to have something very special to hang his Qualifying Race Medal from and the rest of his Marathon medals.
Towards the later part of 2007, not having qualified yet and in no particular hurry to complete his medal display Ken took his time and wanted to make sure that the end result would be something very special, something that he and Nell could be proud of.
The Display would have to be something very special that properly celebrated and presented the years and miles of effort, including the 10 Mile runs with 5 @ Tempo in 85° temps with 80% humidity, single digit temperature 20 mile long runs in the winter often resulting in numb extremities for hours afterwards, Hard Intervals that often times resulted in dry heaving at the end, that went into qualifying for Boston.
Ken’s story is much like many other BQ hopeful runners whose passion and determination drive them to excel and do things that at one point may not have seemed possible.
A doorknob, a lampshade, a shoebox, a shadowbox, or pegboard would not be sufficient for Ken’s Medals (specially the Boston Marathon medals). So we created the best possible medal display for our medals at home and now it is yours to celebrate your medals or give it as a gift.
