5 ideas for your race medals, numbers and t-shirts

Running medal display

If you, like us, take part in lots of different running events, chances are you’ve built up quite the collection of memorabilia. Most events give you a medal and you’ll wear a running number; many also give you a t-shirt. For most of us, trying to display hundreds of medals and wear tens of t-shirts is hard work!

Luckily, there are plenty of options out there to do something special with your race mementos. If you’re wondering what to do with your race medals, numbers and t-shirts, here are 5 ideas.

Medal Munchers

Meet Morty the Medal Muncher. This cute critter is a unique way to display your medals and repurpose old running t-shirts, creating the perfect sporting memento. Your race top is cut into a pattern and sewn by a qualified seamstress. You can even have extra embroidery done on the foot pad, with a name or race time. Morty then holds your medal too! They are made by hand in the UK, but can be shipped worldwide.

Medal Hangers

If you’re guilty of letting your medals hang from the back of doors, on coat hangers or just stashed in a box, an attractive medal hanger could be a great solution. Be proud of your achievements and put your medals on show. There are lots of different designs available, and many can be personalised. Then all you need to do is decide where you want to show off your medals!

Too Many T-Shirts

If you have collected a few running tops, but don’t wear them, this could be a great solution. Rather than throw them away, have them turned into a custom memory blanket. These blankets are made to an extremely high quality. They are really big and cosy, thanks to a coloured fleece backing.

PB Prints

If you’ve got a specific race you want to highlight, PB Prints are an attractive option. The frame has room for your medal, to help you keep it safe. You then get to customise the print with race details, your name and your time. Some options also include a race photo.

Running Scrapbook

A lovely idea that we have seen some people do, is create a running scrapbook. This can include your race numbers, as well as photos from the day. You can hand write notes about how your event went, your time and any other details you want to remember. You can get some great blank scrapbooks on Amazon for your new project.
