EFX Trophies Make the Podium at The Vitality Big Half Event

EFX Trophies Make the Podium at The Vitality Big Half Event
07/04/2020

Special EFX, the leading British company recognised for its prestigious awards and trophies, has produced the exclusive series of sporting trophies for The Vitality Big Half Event. Many amateur participants ran the event, March 1, in aid of raising funds for charity. In addition, a strong turnout of élite athletes tested themselves as part of their training schedule.

Organised by London Marathon Events, the annual event aims to make running accessible to everyone and encourages participation, regardless of background or ability. This year, over 19,000 people took part, rewarded by a sense of achievement and a medal. For the elite winners, they also took home an EFX-designed and manufactured, Vitality trophy.

The colourful logo of the event is the focus of the three different sized trophies, digitally reproduced in full colour on white acrylic and mounted on a brushed nickel plated, engraved plinth. They certainly made a striking trophy on the day and worked will in the press photos.

Kenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia won the men’s event in just over 60 minutes, Lily Partridge of the UK took the women’s top prize in just over 70 minutes and Brent Lakatos (Canada) and Shelly Woods (UK) won the wheelchair events.

For those who did not fancy running 13.1 miles, there were other races to entice everyone to take part, including the Little Half, a relay event and The Vitality Big Mile. Regardless of miles clocked up, the event’s Vitality Big Festival entertained everyone, complete with local entertainment on stage, street food, fun sports activities and introduction to wellbeing experiences.
