Rock The Tour & Collect Heavy Medals!

Think you can rock more than one? Collect some serious extra bling when you finish two or more Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series races in a single calendar year (Jan-Dec 2013). Earn multiple Heavy Medals in one year by completing additional events! Plus, complete specific race challenges and earn Special Heavy Medals. What are you waiting for? Check out the 2013 Heavy Medal lineup and get rocking!

How It Works:

  • Complete two or more 2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll North American Tour Stops to start earning Heavy Medals. Only North American Tour Stops are counted toward your total.
  • Only half marathon or marathon completions qualify. The Brooklyn 10K also qualifies as one event. Relay, Mini Marathon, Bike Tour and other ancillary events are not counted.
  • No application required. You’ll receive your medal in the mail within 8-10 weeks after your qualifying race. Once you reach Rock Star status (5+), you’ll receive an email invitation the week of the race to pick up your award at the finish line.

To Qualify:

  • Sign up using a Raceit.com account to make Rock ‘n’ Roll race registration easy. Already registered for races without an account? Not a problem – just make sure to use the same name and date of birth on all registrations.
  • Register using the same first and last name, and date of birth for all races.
  • Register with an address where you can receive mail. Medals sent to an incorrect or outdated address will not be re-sent. Think yours is old? Send an address update request. Then, update your Raceit.com profile address for future registrations.
  • Still have a question? It may already be answered – check out the Heavy Medals FAQ.

Heavy Medals: Frequently Asked Questions

Registration Questions

Do I need an account on RaceIt to receive Heavy Medals?

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.

I registered online for one event and then at an expo for another. Will I still receive Heavy Medals?

Yes, but 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.

I registered with a charity. Will this registration count toward Heavy Medals?

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.

Heavy Medals Not Received

I have not received my medal. How can I check the status?

Please allow at least 8-10 weeks to receive your award. Medals are typically shipped 4 weeks after your qualifying event, and typical delivery time after shipment is 3-4 weeks. All awards are shipped via USPS 3rd Class. Around holidays and other busy periods, medals delivery may be delayed.

If you have not received your medal after this time frame, please contact us.

Common Reasons Medals are NOT Received

  • The mailing address listed during registration for your qualifying event was 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.

My Heavy Medal was sent to an old address. Can I still receive it?

We always send medal awards to the address listed on your qualifying race 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 and correct during registration. If not, contact us prior to the event and we’ll assist you in updating it.

I should have received a Heavy Medal in a past year. Can I still receive 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.

I did not pick up my Rock Star (or greater) after my qualifying race – can I still receive it?

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.

General Heavy Medals Questions

Are Heavy Medal awards affected by the event distance I completed?

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, Mini Marathon, and other ancillary events do not count toward Heavy Medal awards.

Will I receive a Heavy Medal after every additional marathon and ½ marathon or will I only receive one for the highest level attained?

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 the How It Works for more information.
