MEDALS

HOW YOU GET THEM

At True Grit we don’t just hand out medals after completing 10km and 30+ obstacles of effort. You need to put in the hard yards over a period of time to earn the mark, just as you do in the military. You will be challenged over a number of events in order to earn your stripes.

BRONZE

 

 

3x 10km Events
True Grit Bronze Medal

SILVER

 

5x 10km Events
True Grit Silver Medal

GOLD

 

7x 10km Events
True Grit Gold Medal

Gold Medal Status Free entry for Gold medal wave*

When you complete seven True Grit 10km events, you are inducted into the True Grit Hall of Fame as a True Grit Gold Medallist.

*We will reward you with free entry to run in the 10am Gold Medal Wave at any True Grit event across the country (Gold Medal Wave only).

The Run for Free program is ending soon. The Qualifying Period will end on 31/12/22. If you have not completed 7 events by this date, you will no longer receive free entry once you reach Gold status. The Run for Free program will continue to be honoured for all current Gold Medallists.

THE DETAILS

DO ALL EVENTS COUNT TO MEDALS?

Half events, Urban, Night Attack and Kids Course events unfortunately don’t count to working towards your True Grit medal.

WHAT IF I HAVE A MEDAL ALREADY?

If you are already the rightful recipient of a True Grit Bronze, Silver or Gold medal, our record will reflect this and you will be presented with your medal at the Finish Line of your next True Grit event.

DO YOU KEEP RECORDS OF MY PROGRESS?

We have all the records of our obstacle racers on file and simply by registering for your next event this will update our records to the medal you are eligible for. Be sure to use the same email address each year when registering.

DO I NEED ANYTHING ON THE DAY?

When you arrive and check-in at the Registrations Tent, you will be allocated 2 wristbands if you are due to receive a medal after completion of that event.

WHEN DO I GET MY MEDAL?

All medals are presented at the True Grit Finish Line. Unfortunately no medals will be posted out, so you will need to attend an event to get your medal at the Finish Line.

WHAT IF I RUN IN A DIFFERENT STATE?

Every True Grit 10km event you run (including Enduro) contributes to your tally, so you can run a True Grit event in any state and there is no time limit to run the events in. The qualifying period for the Run for Free program ends on 31/12/22. If you have not completed 7 events by this date, you will no longer receive free entry once you reach Gold status. The Run for Free program will continue to be honoured for all current Gold Medallists.
