Since the beginning of this Marathon, runners have been greeted at the end of the finish line by a member of the First Light Community and presented with a commemorative medallion. With the exception of 2005, 2006 and the Back-2-Back, each medallion has been proudly finished by hand by a member of the First Light Community.
The Marathon committee knows this has been a labor of love for the First Light Community members and hopes runners can appreciate the significance of the contribution by the First Light Community members. In 2010, our race medallions were ranked 10th out of all U.S. marathons by Marathon & Beyond Magazine.
