This year’s Pärnu County Victory Day marathon medal is special. At the start of the marathon in Tori, next to the Estonian Soldiers’ Memorial Church, rises the equestrian monument created by sculptor Mati Karmin “St. George’s Fight with the Dragon” – the first of its kind in Estonia. The sculpture, opened on the Independence Day of 2003, marks Estonia’s victory in the Estonian War of Independence and the restoration of the country’s freedom.
A similar motif has been used on the marathon medal to commemorate Pärnu County and a marathon with a special aura. Every person who completes a distance of 21 or 42 kilometers will be rewarded with unprecedented pride in their collection. The medal with a diameter of 70 mm in 3D format has a unique ribbon with a blue-black-white design.
Did you know that Pärnu is the sunniest part of Estonia? All finishers of the Pärnu Summer Race will receive a unique medal around their neck. The award is inspired by the beautiful beach of the summer capital and the legendary sun. The 70 mm medal is in 2D format.
Those who complete the virtual race will receive a silver medal, a gold medal is handed for the finishers on site. The participants who participate in both virtual race and public event will earn two medals.
Medals are designed by Triin Lepa.
