We’re marching into the six month countdown for the Plano Balloon Festival Races with the unveiling of the 1K and 5K finisher medals! The 9th Annual PBF Races include custom finisher medals for each distance that reflect a hot air balloon for each year.


These three inch custom medals were designed by Running Awards & Apparel and have unique features on each one. The 1K finisher medal is blue with 11 colors and jump ring attachment to the satin printed ribbon.


The 5K finisher medal is shiny gold with an assortment of 13 colors and a single hot air balloon that dangles from the “9” of the 2019 year.  Look at the amazing detail to the design and arrangement of the nine balloons. Fitting 10 balloons next year is going to be a fun challenge!

Curious about the other four finisher medals? The Half Marathon, 10K, Sky High Challenge and Elevate Challenge medals will be unveiled soon along with the new 2019 race shirts!
