Hosted annually on our scenic coastal region, the Gold Coast Marathon recently wrapped up its 40th edition on June 30th and July 1st, 2018. Touted as Australia’s leading marathon, the race includes several distinct categories for participants of all ages and abilities, including the Gold Coast Marathon, Wheelchair Marathon, ASICS Half Marathon, Wheelchair 15km, Southern Cross University 10km Run, Gold Coast Airport Fun Run, and the Garmin Junior Dash.
Prize money for winners of each race ranges from $550 to $20,000 for both men and women. Guests and supporters are invited to cheer on runners from Runaway Bay to Burleigh Heads as participants race along the famously flat, scenic route alongside some of the Gold Coast’s most renowned surf beaches and broadwater areas.
Approached to create a series of custom designed awards for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place Male category winners of the Southern Cross University 10km Run, we wanted to create a design that also encompassed the Gold Coast terrain and easygoing, sunny way of life.
Using a combination of printed acrylics and timber, we incorporated waves and sand design elements as a reminder of the natural local beauty, adding detailed layers for an eye-catching look with all the etched copy and logo elements to serve as a reminder of the race itself.
Of the 5,363 entrants and 4,732 finishers of the Southern Cross University 10km Run, we want to give special congratulations to the recipients of our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards, Jordan Gusman, Andy Buchanan and Adrian Potter.
For your next custom award need, be sure to contact us by phone, email or Skype and we look forward to creating a custom design based on your needs.
