Anyone who has ever run more than a handful of races knows that it's "all about the bling". A beautiful way to display those glorious medals is on a Running Medal Display. Most of the displays can hold 16-20 medals some of which can hold many more. The medals slide right into the slots and are proudly displayed. This makes for a very memorable way to display medals and when friends come over and visit they serve as a motivator. Let's get the medals out of the drawer or from the top of the dresser and display them proudly.
