    *Shipping note: Please note, the medal is carefully inspected and wrapped and sealed in a cushioned jewelry box. This is done to help prevent the chalk from breaking in transit. That said, chalk is fragile and the postal service is not always careful with packages. We cannot replace your chalk if it arrives broken. If it is broken we recommend replacing it with a piece of your own chalk.

    Once your order is placed, you will receive a confirmation of purchase email. Medals are shipped to participants 3-5 days after registration and payment has been processed. Once your order has shipped, you will receive another email with a USPS Tracking number so you can track your order. We ship all medals via USPS mail. If the total weight of your order is 16 oz or less, they are shipped via First Class mail. If the weight is more than 16 oz, we will ship them via Priority Mail. Due to the cost of international shipping, we will charge a fee $6.95 for Canada & Mexico, and $9.95 for European countries. ALL shipping fees are waived if your order is over $70.

    ALL Sales are final! All medals are carefully inspected and shipped in bubble mailers to protect your purchase during transit.

Occasionally, due to unexpected demand for a specific race or manufacturing delays beyond our control, there may be slight delays with mailing. We will communicate these on each race's registration page and our Facebook page as soon as we are aware of the delay.
