2019 Commemorative Medals

Each participant crossing the finish line will be given a commemorative medal at the Finish Line.

Commerative Plate

Since 2010, the world-renowned Louisville Stoneware Company has provided a one-of-a-kind trophy to be awarded to the male and/or female who wins all three of the Triple Crown runs/walks. Gnoc Phan's trophy creation, which is displayed at all three race packet pickups, adds to the excitement of the series for all the participants and race directors.

Then, in 2013, the famous pottery artists approached the ever-growing race series with another unique idea from the owners of Louisville Stoneware: award plates for the individual race winners in the male, female and wheelchair divisions. These stunning plates will also be on display at the packet pickup locations alongside the overall winner trophy.

For more information on Louisville Stoneware and its lengthy, rich, artistic tradition in the Derby City, go to www.louisvillestoneware.com.
