Giveaway: Medal Holder by Allied Medal

Imagine my delight when I arrived home from running errands earlier this week and found this by my front door! It's always exciting to have a package but two is even better!
I love it when the FedEx man comes by!
The bottom package was the one I could not wait to open.  The return address was Allied Medal, and I knew immediately what was going to be inside!

Carefully cutting through a well padded package!

The beautiful medal hanger!

Allied Medal provided this wonderful medal holder for me to review on the blog. For the longest time I have perused their website, trying to figure out what medal holder I would like to have and where to put it in our home.  They have a very large selection as well as the option for a  custom  hanger.  With our logo and blog name having the word Disney, I could not use that for a medal holder.  However, this one seemed perfect since many of our races are run at the most magical place on earth!

Source
There was obvious care in packaging (not one, but two layers including corrugated plastic) with detailed instructions and materials for hanging.  The biggest problem for me was finding the best place to hang it in our home.  Of course I thought it should be over the fireplace, but I was vetoed.  It finally ended up next to my dresser in the bedroom.  It is the perfect spot, since I will be able to enjoy it daily.
Hung with all the medals!
Now it's your turn.  Would you like to win one of these medal hangers?  Allied Medal has generously agreed to provide one standard medal hanger valued at $45 or a discount of $50 on any medal rack on their website. What are you waiting for?  Hurry over to their website and pick which one you would choose!  Using the Rafflecopter link below, follow the rules and you could be the lucky winner! (this giveaway is open to US residents only)

a Rafflecopter giveaway (CLOSED)

Disclaimer:  Allied Medal provided me with the medal holder but I received no compensation for this post.  As always, the opinions here are my own.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Every Mile is Magic is definitely my favorite!! I need one for all these challenge medals!!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'd love a customized one that says It's A Harleyyy Life orrrrr Think Strong, Be Strong, Finish Strong

    ReplyDelete
  6. I have 2 from Allied and LOVE THEM!!!! I have the Coast To Coast And Everywhere In Between one. THEN I WON a hanager from them in one of their monthly contests!! I chose the Pixie Dust one for my winner. The one I purchased, I did opt to order the 3 rows right from the start. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I still have yet to purchase my first medal rack. It would be awesome if I won!

    ReplyDelete
  8. After 2 years I recently purchased the " Think Strong Be Strong Finish Strong" from Allied. I absolutely love it but now my daughter is wanting one. I would like to get her one to encourage her to keep running. She has about 6-8 medals of her own already so its time. She would like the "Always Earned Never Given "

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'd pick the same one you have because every mile really easy magic! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Would love to have one of the magical miles one. I have 19 Run Disney medals that would look great on the display.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love the one you have, but I might want a custom one with maybe "Why Walk When You Can Run". So many great choices!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like the "Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world" one...also love the one you got :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh how I would love to win one of these! I Love your pick and I also like the "Tiara" but that don't look like it would hold as many race medals as I would like to accomplish, then "Dreams Do Come True" I try hard to believe it that, "Think Strong Be Strong Finish Strong" is always my goal for myself and what I try to tell others to motivate them, BUT If it was an option to win a custom I would like to go with my Favorite saying I made up: "Luv 2 Hv Fun!" Good Luck to all!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My current medal hanger is overflowing so a new one would be awesome. I'd choose the magical mile one because Disney is my favorite place to run!

    ReplyDelete

  68. I've perused their website several times over the past year...just haven't picked one out yet. I like the city skyline ones that don't say anything, since most of my races tend to be in downtown areas (Cincinnati, Louisville, Chicago).

    ReplyDelete
  121. Every magical mile would be a fun one to have.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  138. I'd probably go with the popular Every Mile is Magic, too!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I so need this!!! My current hanger from Allied Medals is FULL! Yes! I can not fit one more medal on it so I have seriously been thinking about getting a Disney specific hanger for the Disney wall I am going to create in our basement.

    ReplyDelete
  143. I would for sure choose "Once Upon A Run". I have my daughter to thank for starting me on this running journey. I am not a runner.... at all, in fact, I had never run anywhere in my life, not even to the refrigerator! I am a 38 year old Mom of 3 special needs children. My youngest is 18 months old and has a rare genetic disorder that less than 700 people in the world have. I started running when she was 3 months old because I needed an escape for my sanity. I saw a post on a Disney fb page talking about the Princess Half Marathon and knew I had to sign up. I worked hard.... really hard to train and get ready for the race. The second I crossed that finish line I knew I was addicted. I am addicted mostly to the bling! LOL My life isn't easy, not at all, but running helps to give me some much needed time to refocus and regroup! I would <3 a place to display my medals. I need that reminder hanging in front of me that says, "You did it and you can keep doing it!"

    ReplyDelete
  144. I saw these hangers in person for the first time at Disneyland...they were beautiful... I like Coast to Coast and everywhere in between. I love yours Pam and where you hung it with your medals. Just look at all you have accomplished thus far! Huge inspiration to me always!

    ReplyDelete
  145. *fingers crossed!* I really need a medal display, and Allied has some of the best designs! LOVE the Magical Displays! :)

    ReplyDelete
  146. These are so cute My Glass Slipper (hopefully) Medals will look great on one.

    ReplyDelete
  147. a custom funfitgirl hangar!! ...probably something that include "will run for sprinkles"
