Track Trophies and Awards
Track and Field and Cross Country are often confused and are quite often thought of synonymously by the general public. But even though the people who participate in the two sports are usually the same, and the coaches are usually the same, and the competing schools are the same, the sports are very different. Track and field events take place in the spring are highlighted by running races on a track that typically surrounds the football field with races of sprint length and longer or relay races. There are also the “field” events, which take place on the football field – maybe that’s why they are referred to as Field events. These events include jumping, pole vaulting, discus throwing and shot put, among other events. The Cross Country events take place in the autumn and are trail running events at various distances, typically 1 mile, 5K, or 10K running events. So, you can see, even though they are the same, they are totally different.
Most of the awards given for track and field and cross-country events are the same ones used for Fun Run Fundraisers throughout the year. Typically these are medals and ribbons. At QuickTrophy we have a nice selection of running medals including 5K, 10K, and CC medals with an arrow running through the CC, a traditional icon of Cross-Country races. We also have generic ribbons in 1st through 10th place, and generic track ribbons in 1st through 3rd place along with participation ribbons.
But for the big track and cross country events, championship trophies would probably be appropriate. Or even perpetual trophies to keep track of the annual winner of a long running rivalry between schools or the winners of annual Fun Run events. No matter what your trophy needs, QuickTrophy will make your custom engraved medals and trophies exactly the way you want them. And our speedy processing makes sure we get them shipped out the door by the next business day – at the latest.
