Everyone’s a medal winner at The Friendlies Cane2Coral
RACEGOERS at the Friendlies Cane 2 Coral will be able to wear their race achievement with pride, with race medallions being awarded to each participant this year.
In its seventh year, Friendlies Cane 2 Coral president Jason Pascoe said the medallions would not only serve as a memento of the event, but they would add colour to the party at the finish line.
"Each leg of the race will have a corresponding coloured lanyard. Orange for the 21.1km, green for the 15km, blue for the 8km and purple for the 4km," Mr Pascoe said.
"We thank our naming sponsor, the Friendly Society Private Hospital, for their donation of these colourful medallions."
Friendly Society Private Hospital business development manager Stuart Bonnett said after supplying the race hats to the Friendlies Cane 2 Coral for the past six years, it was nice to have a change to the medallions.
"We have lots of race regulars, so it is good to be able to offer participants something different this year as recognition for their participation and achievement," Mr Bonnett said.
"The colours of the lanyard also mean racers can display their achievement, big or small, around their neck with pride."
Medallions will be handed out at the finish line of the event on Sunday, August 7.
