    I am only posting this to preserve the image. The medal is biodegradable and contains wild flower seeds, so is destined for the garden in spring. The runs were a collection of training runs logged fir my GNR 2023 but the medal only arrived last week

    Question: “what’s worse than a wooden medal?”

    Answer: “one that disintegrates if you hang it up for long enough!”

    The whole drive for “eco friendly” bling is really irritating me, if an event/challenge are worried medals are chucked in a drawer only to make there way to landfill, then have them as a chargable add on, then only the people who want them and will keep them will order them.

    Sorry Barry, rant over 🙂 I know this was a challenge not an event, and you signed up knowing what you would get, but it still grinds my gears a bit, I wonder how many more people would have signed up if the bling was…. well – more blingy??

    I agree Sharnie. My reward is always a shiny medal …..the chunkier, weightier, blingy the better. I have this one that is going to rot and I had a wooden one from a 10K (can’t remember which) and am underwhelmed by both. I think this one has started to decompose already!
