Disclaimer: I received a complimentary medal display from Medal Mode. No other compensation was or will be received (unless you use the affiliate link below to order your own display). As always, all opinions are my own.
Like many runners, I look forward to proudly displaying my medal post race, especially after milestone races. Several years ago, my husband and I put together our medal display wall in our office, which includes a couple of medal racks for our medals, and a special one on which his medals from the 2014 Dopey Challenge and my medal from my first half marathon are able to be highlighted and standout from the rest of our medals. Even before crossing the Chicago Marathon finish line back in October, I knew that I’d want a special way to showcase my first marathon medal. Enter Medal Mode, a small family owned and operated business in Wisconsin.
My display arrived in three pieces, including two special edition end caps for the Chicago Marathon. The display was incredibly easy to assemble thanks to the “how to assemble” video available on their website.
With each Medal Mode display you have the option of either hanging it on the wall or leaving it as a free standing medal display. In addition to the assembly video, several other how to videos are available on their website, including how to wrap your medal(s) onto the display, how to hang the display on the wall, and how to change the end caps on your display should you want to switch them out.
Displays are available in multiple sizes (for 1 to 25 medals, priced from $14.99 to $34.99). A variety of end caps are available as well. Everything from solid color end caps to special edition race specific end caps are options available for purchase. Race distances are also options for the end caps.
Want to give Medal Mode a try for yourself? Don’t hesitate to head over to their website and check out all of the available options and ways that you can create your own special medal display.
QOTD: What’s your one special race medal that you want to display separately from the rest of your medals?
