“From earning my first medals (back in the days when I thought running to the bus stop was impossible) through to earning my first marathon medal, all of my medals represent significant personal achievements and are proudly on display together.” – Kari Edwards.

We’re delighted to have Kari from “Hang Your Gong Medal Hangers” attend the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon on 8 March 2020. In case your wondering about the name of her business – she assures us that “Gong” is British Slang for “Medal”. Glad we cleared that one up…

Displaying your medals on a medal hanger is a great way to remind yourself what you’re really capable of. Remembering that finish-line feeling can certainly help motivate you to continue running or even run a little more.

All participants will be able to enjoy an exclusive 10% discount on all medal hangers purchased on race day. Alternatively, you can purchase one today with code: SURREY10 at and collect from the stall on race day (normal shipping also available for which fees may apply). This exclusive discount code will be valid until 15 April 2020.

With various different medal hanging options available, you can be sure that Hang Your Gong medal hangers are among the best ones available. Here’s why…

1. They are made with love right here in the UK.

2. Each medal hanger is made from powder-coated steel (no sharp edges) so they are totally safe and suitable for children to enjoy too. They come with clear instructions for how to affix to the wall (+screws) and advice for how-best to style your medals.

3. Unlike other single-bar hangers, Hang Your Gong medal hangers have unique paired hanging-bars which allows you to easily loop the ribbons without the need to tie or cut to adjust to desired height – enabling you to get more medals on show.

4. They come in a variety of sizes and styles. Their largest hanger can hold up to 3kg of bling – that’s like 30-50+ medals!!

And now, finally, reading this whole article is about to pay off – we have X2 Hang your Gong medal hangers to give away and you’re the first to know about it! 🥳

We will be launching 2 separate giveaways very soon, so keep an eye out on our Facebook page for instructions for how to enter…

The first medal hanger will go into a prize draw for anyone who has participated in all Mercer Surrey Half Marathon events. You’ll have to post a photo of all your medals in the comments of the competition post and – if you win – remember to bring them along on race day to get a photo with them all!!

The second medal hanger we will give away in a prize draw after the event for anyone who manages a personal best time at the 2020 Mercer Surrey Half Marathon. Details for both giveaways will be released in due course.
