Unilab Active Health Bib Holder: (to be given upon registration)

NO MORE MEDICINES in small pouches this time!




21k Finisher’s Medal:

If only I were ready to run 21k! I want this badly!!! The medal is really unique and definitely a collector’s item. By itself, it already looks good, but each medal is actually part of a 3 piece puzzle which you can complete if you run the two 21k and one 32k distances in the Run United Series.
