The Finish
Always remember that the journey is greater than the destination! The trail experience is much more blissful than chasing your watch.

The Memento
We hope you liked this years medal made from stone through sculpting techniques. The stone is obtained from the hilly regions of Thiruvannamalai. These kind of stones have been historically used in making stone sculptures dating back to Pallava dynasty. The artisans have been working on this art from generations for many years now. The design chosen represents the marathon runner and material used represents his/her strength. For more details contact PurpleJug
