Legacy runners should get both, not have to exchange.

I get why they did that for the new runners participating or to attract new comers. But they should consider giving both medals instead of exchanging them. Like a reward or perks for starting the series medals.

The Rock N Roll Arizona race faced a similar problem from 2015-2018 when they offered a 4-year connecting medal series. Some people were actually complaining in an opposite way that they started in the middle of the series and couldn't complete the full set. So, what RnR did was offer a unique medal such as the one above for each year IN ADDITION to the connecting medals. Runners who started the 4-year series would actually receive BOTH medals so it was like a reward of an extra medal for those who ran the races consecutively as legacy. Please consider allowing runners to have both medals. This would increase participation and satisfaction as well as avoid alienating participants who join part way through the series. The operating cost of an extra medal is typically well overshadowed by the benefit of extra participants.

I think if you guys are smart you will give both to the ones who ran last year as a courtesy.

Why don't you give the series runners both medals attached to the same ribbon, instead of forcing us to choose one or the other? They do this for the Spartan trifecta races.

What about the medal series that was supposed to happen for four years starting with 2018?!

Can us half marathoners get this medal and the series one :). I like them both :)

Nikki and Esmeralda I want this medal!!

So the connecting medals idea is just dropped? Lame. Thought that was a really cool idea.

I do believe that I should get both this medal and my series medal. I get both a participant shirt and a legacy item when I run each year. Seems like the series medal should work the same way.

Kelly Montgomery! I am going to email.....

How to get the continuation medal: email them your name, collect the round medal when you finish, go to the T-shirt exchange booth to switch out to your continuation medal

WTH, can the relay participants continue theirs too? This is terrible. I was so excited to sign up again to continue the series 😡😡😡

I thought the half marathon medals for the next several years were supposed to form the San Diego skyline when combined. Am I thinking of another race or ?????

All I wanna know is am I coming back this year to pace 1:25:00 again.

Metals are a big expense item, a person should only need one metal for their race. Let’s keep costs in check so race don’t cost more. Do we need to make contact before the event to arrange a series metal swop?

So the email response is that you exchange it in the T-shirt exchange booth post race if you want the continuation medal. They did say they will reserve one since I emailed so to be on the safe side you may want to email!

So no more 4 year series??? That's shit

Nikki Terrell

it is an interesting decision for sure. Runner's bling is a big deal :-)

Love this new medal !

Personally I prefer this medal to the series medal, not sure I want the other medal. The only thing I dislike about this race is the Petco finish. It was epic finishing in the Gaslamp, Petco Park finish is so boring. Only doing this because I’m doing the Challenge.

All I care about is winning a coaster! You go SD 1/2 🏃🏻‍♀️🏅!

Why would I have to trade it in? They should let’s us keep both. Oh well
