The Los Angeles International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, and its own police task force, Los Angeles Airport Police started LAX Run to raise money for the Tommy Scott Scholarship Fund. It is the only running race you will run at LAX and the police is right there running with you! We were super excited when asked by the organizers to help create a one-of-a-kind race medal for this special race.
Since this race is organized by Los Angeles Airport Police, the design of the medal will be based upon the airport police badge. There was also individual winners for each age categories, and the winners will get a separate medal besides the finisher medal. We created the same design but on mylar inserts so we can create custom winner medals with gold, silver and bronze trims. Now both the winners and runner medals look great as a set.
Re-creating the police badge on a race medal requires a lot of attention to small details and delicate hand work. We took great care to make sure all of the details are maintained and represented on the race medals. The results were these gorgeous true to life police badge turned runner medals!
