In order to receive Heavy Medals, you must register as an official Heavy Medalist. Enroll today. Make sure your address and information is current; medals will be sent to the address used on your Heavy Medals registration.
When you register for Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events, you have the option to create an account through the RaceIt.com registration system. We strongly recommend you use an account during registration to ensure your information is consistent between registrations.
Yes - as long as you are a registered Heavy Medalist. Make sure to use the same name and date of birth for each registration. Be mindful of hyphens, abbreviations and spelling. If you have two registrations with different information, we will not be able to match your race completions and things will get confusing quickly.
Yes, but make sure to use the same name and date of birth. Be mindful of hyphens, abbreviations and spelling. If you have two registrations with different information, our awards system probably won’t send you anything shiny.
Yes, you may register for Heavy Medals at anytime during the year. We will begin to send you medals after your next qualifying event. If you would like to request a previous medal, please contact us.
Please allow at least 8-10 weeks to receive your award. Medals are typically shipped 6 weeks after your qualifying event, and typical delivery time after shipment is 2-4 weeks. All awards are shipped via USPS 3rd Class. Around holidays and other busy periods, medal delivery may be delayed. If you have not received your medal after this time frame, please contact us.
Common Reasons Medals are NOT Received:
- You are not registered as an official Heavy Medalist
- The mailing address listed on your Heavy Medals registration is incorrect or out-of-date
- Your name or date of birth differed between registrations
- You didn’t complete the half or full marathon distance
- The finishing time for one of your races wasn’t recorded properly
Not sure the problem? Contact us and we’ll help you figure it out.
We always send medal awards to the address indicated on your Heavy Medals registration. If this address was incorrect or out-of-date, we will not send you a replacement medal. To avoid this issue, please ensure that your address is current. If not, contact us prior to the event and we’ll assist you in updating it.
Heavy Medals may be requested up to 6 months after the qualifying event, but are only offered as supplies last. Medal designs and inventory change on a yearly basis, so we don’t typically carry Heavy Medals from previous years.
If you did not pick up your medal award after the qualifying race, please contact us. Heavy Medals may be requested up to 6 months after the qualifying event, but are only offered as supplies last.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Heavy Medals Hall of Fame recognizes the outstanding achievement of Heavy Medalists for the calendar year. Official Heavy Medalists will be inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Heavy Medals Hall of Fame once they have completed 15 qualifying distances on the 2014 North American Tour Stop schedule.
Heavy Medals Hall of Famers will receive a vanity bib to mark their achievement for the 15th event and each event thereafter. They will also receive an induction package that includes a Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series windbreaker, backpack and merchandise gift card. The name and photo (with permission) of each 2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series Hall of Famer will be displayed on our website and at each expo in 2015.
The Heavy Medals Hall of Famer(s) that completes the highest number of qualifying events in the calendar year will receive a one-of-a-kind plaque to commemorate their rockin’ year!
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Heavy Medals Hall of Fame can only be earned by completing qualifying North American events (same guidelines of earning Heavy Medals). We hope to integrate international events more in future years. Stay tuned!
Only half marathon or marathon events are counted toward Heavy Medal qualification. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Brooklyn 10k is also counted as a qualifying event. Relay, Bike Tour, 10k, 5K, and other ancillary events do not count toward Heavy Medal awards.
Once you have registered to become an official Heavy Medalist, you will receive a Heavy Medal for completing two or more qualifying Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events. As you complete additional events you will qualify for additional medals – see Enroll Today for more information.
