2019 Medal Revealed

The 2019 ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon medal has been revealed!

Designed in antique gold, this year’s medal is notably the chunkiest medal for the event yet! The medal takes a new bold square shape, with the rebranded Manchester ‘M’ taking centre stage on a sandblasted effect background. This simple yet effective design will be handed to each person who finishes the 2019 ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon taking place on Sunday 7 April.

Jenna Charman, who helped design the 2019 medal, said “We know marathon medals are more than a piece of metal, they represent a magnificent achievement, and are treasured for years to come. With our event growing in numbers by an incredible 50%, we wanted something big and bold to reflect that. The straight sides are a nod to the famously flat course. Now I’ve seen it in person I’m actually a bit upset I won’t be able to run myself, although seeing 20,000 people wearing something I have designed isn’t so bad!”
