Medal Mode Review

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.

2017 Chicago Marathon End Cap

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?

    This is really neat! What a great gift it would be for a first-time marathoner!

  2. Gosh, my first marathon medal is very special, but so are the other six…every marathon has been special for many different reasons.

    This is awesome! I’ve seen this on Instagram and it’s such an awesome way to display races medals, especially your first marathon medal!

  4. Coco says:

    This is a neat idea. It took me ages to get a medal hangar because of not wanting to hang something on the wall. This would be much easier no matter where you want to display it.

  5. That’s kinda neat! I’d probably display my 2nd half marathon (current PB) or a medal from one of the races I paced.

  6. H.A.G. says:

    I really like this- My medals are all in a drawer until I figure out how to display! Keeping this one in mind!

  7. I really like this idea! Definitely keeping this one in mind!

    I’d love that if I ever run a full marathon.

  10. This is such a cool way to highlight a really special medal! And those custom Chicago endcaps…*heart-eyed emoji* That’s amazing!

    love this!
    I think I still love my first Paris Marathon medal the most, that’s likely the one that would be displayed in this way 🙂

  13. Rachel says:

    This is really cool. What a great idea!

  14. How neat! I know a one and done marathoner who this will be perfect for!

    It is so important to display our achievements. Sometimes that visual reminder can do wonders for that self-esteem.

  16. I’ve seen these recently and they are very cool! I didn’t realize they could also be wall-mounted.

  17. That’s really cool! I have my medals on a rack, but there ar couple of them that would be great to showcase!

  18. This is so cool! I love having my bling out to remind me of all the hard work and accomplishments! I would def want to display my first marathon bling (when it happens!)
    Thanks for sharing about this Kathryn!
