THE DIVAS® MEDAL
All our half marathon finishers will receive a big, sparkly crown-shaped medal – definitely fit for a DIVA! A unique and memorable medal to commemorate an unforgettable experience! Our 5K finishers will get a smaller version of this awesome medal*.
2015 medal design is shown here; 2016 design coming soon!
LET'S OWN THE WEEKEND!
It is not just about the run but the whole weekend experience. Most of our events will host a Health & Fitness Boutique, Divas® 5K, Diva Lounge, Post Race Party and more! Some of our races will also host yoga sessions, spa specials, winery visits and more. Each city gives the race its own special flavor for a wonderful weekend with the girls or with family where mom, sister or daughter are the stars.
BOAS AND TIARAS
Remember when you were younger and would stand in front of the mirror playing dress up? Well, just because you’re a grown-up doesn’t mean you can’t be a princess! All runners will pass by our famous Boa & Tiara Station before the finish line!
NOT JUST ANOTHER RACE T-SHIRT
Men’s and women’s bodies are different so we have women’s fit technical tees to celebrate and embrace our curves. Choose to wear it on the day of the race and trust us, you’ll get more than a couple stares. Be careful when crossing the street… you’ll look so good you’ll cause an accident!*
A UNIQUE YOU - PERSONALIZED BIB
You’re more than just a pretty face! You’re intelligent, motivated, compassionate, and gorgeous! While you won’t be able to fit all of that on your bib, you can personalize it to your liking. All of our bibs include the word “Diva” so you can be Diva Kathy or Diva Licious. One thing you can’t be is late to the party. You must register at least a month before the event, at the latest, in order to have your personalization included.
FREQUENT DIVA AWARDS
You can never have too much of a good thing, right Divas? And for all our loyal Diva runners we wanted to reward them by recognizing them with special awards and perks. So if you are planning to do more than 3 Divas® Half Marathons in the same calendar year, some very special bling could be yours!
*SPECIAL EDITION TEMECULA participants will receive a different gold finisher medal, track jackets instead of t-shirts and wine tastings in place of bubbly.
