  • HEAVY MEDAL: Two pounds worth for LR Marathon finishers.

Channel 4 caught my attention with a question for viewers about what they think of the medal to be awarded all finishers in the Little Rock Marathon on March 2.

The Little Rock race has always distinguished itself with outlandish medals.

This year's is the biggest yet.

The 2014 family of finisher medals feature the “EPIC” super hero theme, as well as the race director’s “smooch.” According to Green, the marathon medal is 8 ¼ inches, weighs more than 2 ½ pounds and features a custom ribbon. It is the biggest medal the race has produced to date.

The half marathon finisher’s medal is 4 inches and weighs slightly more than 14 ounces.

So what do you think?
