The ADNOC Abu Dhabi Marathon medals

These are the stunning medals that will be handed out at this year’s ADNOC Abu Dhabi Marathon.

All runners who complete one of the four races taking place on Friday, 6th December, will be awarded a bespoke ADNOC Abu Dhabi Marathon medal which has been designed especially for the event. Two medal designs have been created for participants in different categories – one for runners completing the full 42.195km marathon and another for those finishing the 2.5km, 5km, 10km races.

Both medals’ contemporary designs incorporate the event logo’s unmistakable running silhouette on Abu Dhabi’s iconic Corniche skyline that features the prominent ADNOC HQ Tower. While the medal for the 10km, 5km and 2.5km commemorates the finisher’s achievement with the triumphant engraving ‘I did it’, medals for those completing the full marathon will have a simple yet declarative stamp of ’42.195km’ on theirs.

H.E. Aref Al Awani, General Secretary of the Abu Dhabi Sports Council, said: “Whatever the age or ability of each participant, it is important to recognise their efforts in joining the
community at such a wonderful event and completing a race distance that suits their fitness levels. To mark their achievements, it is fitting that they will receive such an elegantly designed medal that celebrates the spirit of our great city.

“Nonetheless, to complete a full marathon race is an extra special accomplishment that requires months of training and dedication. As such, we thought that those completing the full marathon should receive something that distinguishes their incredible hard work.”
