Thank You For Choosing Ministry of Medals

We are sorry to say that we have decided to close our doors.

Due to personal circumstances, our virtual running journey with you all is coming to an end…. We have had an amazing time, following your running adventures, sharing your achievements and we are proud of each and every one of you!

Good news is that all medals are now reduced and will be sent out
to you without the need for evidence! If you signed up to a challenge in the
past 6 months and haven’t claimed your medal yet, we will get it in the post
for you (excluding past monthly challenges). If you signed up for an annual
challenge last year, for 2021, we will get your medal sent out too.

All medals will be packaged, ready to open when you achieve
your goal. Why not get your challenges ready for 2022!

If you are a school, team or organising a fundraising event,
please get in touch for bulk purchases.
