For many runners, the season starts on the second Sunday in January in Egmond. The Half Marathon is famous for its challenging course: it starts with some tough kilometres on the beach, followed by a fantastic stretch across the North Holland dune reserve. The changing tides and weather conditions make each edition different. One year the runners are plagued by rain, storm and snow, while the weather was mild and springy during other editions. Every year many returning visitors restart the battle against the elements. Of course, the medal always has a tough look. This time a background structure
was chosen. Because of the plate structure in the background, the top layer with the NN logo contrasts well. The choice of an original shape
, a rectangular medal with a rounded corner, makes the medal extra special.
