2016 Series Race Medals!
We've finalized the medal designs! Again this year, each of the three medals in the Run Stillwater series fit together, and in 2016 we're adding a magnetic feature. The only way to get the set is by running each of the races in the series. Thanks to the comments and support of all our participants, we know that this was very popular, so we're not messin' with a good thing!
