The Medal

All finishers – triathletes and each member of the relay teams – will receive this stunning (and useful!) finisher’s medal! The Iron Girl logo sits atop this uniquely shaped medal, which allows our 21+ triathletes to use as a wine bottle stopper. Can you think of a better way to show off your great achievement than at your next ladies night?

Under 21 or prefer other beverages to wine? This one-of-a-kind medal will still be sure to draw attention and stand out whether you’re just starting your collection or adding to an abundant assortment!
