How To Qualify

  2. Complete two or more 2018 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series Tour Stops – only half and full marathon distances count toward your Heavy Medals total
  3. Receive Heavy Medals 2-4 in the mail 8-10 weeks after your qualifying event*
  4. Once you reach Roadie status (5+), you’ll receive an e-mail invitation the week of the event to pick up your medal at the finish line*
    (*all medals earned at an event outside of the United States and Canada will be mailed unless stated otherwise prior to the event)

Tips For The Journey

  • Heavy Medals will only be awarded to participants who enroll as official Heavy Medalists. Sign up using a Active.com account to make Rock ‘n’ Roll event registration easy.
  • Register using the same first and last name, and date of birth for all events. If your records don’t match, you won’t get a medal!
  • Enroll in the Heavy Medals program using an address where you can receive mail. Medals will be mailed to the address listed on your Heavy Medals enrollment on your Active.com Profile. Be sure that your Active.com Profile remains updated throughout the season.
  • You must have a time posted on the official Results to get credit for an event. If you have an issue with your results, please fill out a Results Correction Request within 30 days of the event.
  • Still have a question? It may already be answered – check out the Heavy Medals FAQ

General Heavy Medals Questions

Do I have to enroll as an official Heavy Medalist every year?

Yes – to keep an accurate database of our Heavy Medalists, we need you to enroll in the program each year. Thank you!

Are Heavy Medals affected by the event distance I completed?

Only half marathon or marathon events count for Heavy Medals qualifications. Relay, 10K, 5K, and other ancillary event distances do not count toward earning Heavy Medals.

Will I receive a Heavy Medal after every additional marathon and ½ marathon or will I only receive one for the highest level attained?

Once you have enrolled as an official Heavy Medalist, you will receive a Heavy Medal for completing two or more qualifying Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events. As you complete additional events, you will qualify for additional medals. We encourage participants to be registered for the Heavy Medals Program prior to completing the events they are registered for.

Do International events count towards my Heavy Medals total?

Yes! Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events outside of North America will count towards your Heavy Medals total. Due to customs and other logistics, all medals earned at events outside of the United States and Canada will be mailed unless stated otherwise prior to the event (even Roadie and greater).

Registration Questions

How do I start receiving my Heavy Medals?

In order to receive Heavy Medals, you must enroll as an official Heavy Medalist. Make sure your address and information is current; medals will be sent to the address used on your Heavy Medals enrollment.

Do I need an account on Active.com to receive Heavy Medals?

When you register for Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events, you have the option to create an account through Active.com. To ensure you information is consistent between registrations, we strongly recommend you use an account during registration.

I registered online for one event and then at an expo for another. Will I still receive Heavy Medals?

Yes – as long as you are enrolled as an official Heavy Medalist. Make sure to use the same name and date of birth for each registration. Be mindful of hyphens, abbreviations and spelling. If you have two registrations with different information, we will not be able to match your race completions and things will get confusing quickly.

I registered with a charity. Will this registration count toward Heavy Medals?

Yes, but make sure to use the same name and date of birth. Be mindful of hyphens, abbreviations and spelling. If you have two registrations with different information, our awards system probably won’t send you anything shiny.

I am enrolled in the Tour Pass Program, does this automatically enroll me in the Heavy Medals Program?

No. You must register for the Heavy Medals Program separately from the Tour Pass Program.

I am enrolled for multiple events this season, am I automatically qualified for the Heavy Medals Program?

No. You must be registered for the Heavy Medals Program.

Heavy Medals Not Received

I have not received my medal. How can I check the status?
We are currently experiencing delays in our medal delivery and our Heavy Medals 2-4 will begin to be shipped out in July. Once medals are shipped out the typical delivery time is 2-3 weeks. We ask that you please check the ‘Common Reasons Medals are NOT Received’ list below to ensure all of your information is correct in the meantime. If you have any further questions regarding your status please contact us at, heavymedals@competitorgroup.com.

Common Reasons Medals are NOT Received:
• You are not enrolled as an official Heavy Medalist
• The mailing address listed on your Heavy Medals enrollment is incorrect or out-of-date
• Your name or date of birth differed between registrations
• You didn’t complete the half or marathon distance
• The finishing time for one of your races wasn’t recorded properly
• The email address listed on your Heavy Medals enrollment does not match with your race registration

My Heavy Medal was sent to an old address. Can I still receive it?
Medals will be mailed to the address listed on your Heavy Medals enrollment on your Active.com Profile. Be sure that your Active.com Profile remains updated throughout the season. If this address was incorrect or out-of-date, we will not send you a replacement medal.

I should have received a Heavy Medal in the past. Can I still receive it?
Heavy Medals may be requested up to 6 months after the qualifying event, but are only offered as supplies last. Medal designs and inventory change on a bi-yearly basis, so we don’t typically carry Heavy Medals from previous years.
I did not pick up my Roadie (or greater) after my qualifying race - can I still receive it?
If you did not pick up your medal award after the qualifying race, please contact us at, heavymedals@competitorgroup.com. Heavy Medals may be requested up to 6 months after the qualifying event, but are only offered as supplies last.

Heavy Medals Perks Questions

 

Where do I pick up my Heavy Medal Perks?

I did not pick up my Heavy Medal Perks during my qualifying race – can I still receive it?

If you did not pick up your Heavy Medal Perks during your qualifying race you will not receive them, and they will not be mailed to you.

Yes – to keep an accurate database of our Heavy Medalists, we need you to enroll in the program each year.
