Lynchburg, VA - Thursday was an exciting day for the folks running the Virginia Ten Miler. Organizers gave ABC 13 a sneak peek at the medals race participants will receive, just delivered this week.
The medal was modeled after the 40th anniversary logo.
The medals are produced by the same company that makes the medals for some of the country's biggest road races including the Boston Marathon.
Each race participant will receive one. There is one for the four miler and one miler as well.
Event organizers say they're pleased with the way the medals came out, "I think this is one of the nicest finisher medals I've ever seen of any of the races I've either participated in or raced in. I think this will be the envy of many races throughout the United States" said Jeff Fedorko, the race director.
Some more big race news, organizers say they've hit record registration numbers. More than 4,000 folks have signed up so far, that is the most ever.
If you'd like to run, you have till Sunday night to pre-register, or you can register on race day.
