Finishers Medals

Run for God is pleased to announce that ALL, yes ALL race finishers will receive a high quality die cast medal for completing Run at the Mill. These medals are sure to stand out as one of your favorite keepsake items from ANY race!

Why do we wait for the last runner to finish before handing out awards?

We get this question often, and we understand that some of you fast runners may be waiting a while before getting your award. But here at Run for God, we have decided that EVERYONE should experience that magical finish line experience no matter what their time may be. For this reason, we hope that you will hang around and help us cheer every runner in, and be inspired by those who just a short time ago were saying “I can’t” and are now saying “I did”.

How are the proceeds used?

100% of the proceeds from our races are used in one of two ways.  The first is to keep the day-to-day operations of Run for God moving.  Our revenue comes from books, t-shirts, sponsors, and races.  We made the decision early on not to seek private donations of any kind to support this ministry.  Another direct result of our race proceeds is to fund a race that we started hosting in November called the “My Hope America 5K” This race is offered to 2000 middle and high school kids as well as their families in Dalton, GA (the home of Run for God).  This race is completely free to all in the community and the primary focus is to share the gospel of Christ through the My Hope America video by Dr. Billy Graham.  Every runner gets the complete experience, from the race, to the timing, and the t-shirts.  Once the race is finished, everyone sits down to hear Billy Graham do what he does best, share the gospel with a lost and dying world.
