SCOT IABANK TORONTO WAT ERFRONT MARAT HON

Canadian Running - - OFF THE BEATEN PATH -

The medals have de­picted a dif­fer­ent Toronto land­mark ev­ery year since 2008. Last year’s medal showed off Toronto’s 1960s fu­tur­ist twin-tow­ered City Hall. “Get­ting to the start line of a marathon is a jour­ney,” says medal de­signer Inge John­son. “Get­ting to the fin­ish line of a marathon is an­other huge jour­ney. I want to re­ward those ef­forts with a medal de­sign that is mean­ing­ful to those who have jour­neyed, crossed the fin­ish line and earned this proof of their en­deav­our. I mean to make it spe­cial, show­cas­ing what Toronto run­ners love about our city while tak­ing great care with how the land­mark is ren­dered in re­lief on the metal. I mean to make it a work of art.”
