2021 Special Virtual Lost Dutchman Marathon Medal

The 2021 Lost Dutchman will feature a special one time only virtual participant medal. We are known for our unique high quality medals, and this one is no different. However this medal will NOT be put into the rotation as we typically do. This year we are creating an exclusive medal that only those who participate in the virtual event will be able to earn. It features homage to our 20th Anniversary and its Valentines heart shape can be used to frame your finish picture… Be sure to not miss out!

We highly recommend that all participants take care and make sure you order accordingly. We will not be able to offer any size exchanges of shirts after pickup or shipment.

Runner's Bib

We took extra care in designing this year's runner's bib. Not only did we want to include all of our traditional features with prospectors, the beautiful Superstition Mountains & an Arizona flag, but also a hint of the 2020 remnants that have caused us to go virtual this year.
