Medals Designed for the Iron Horse

Posted on

The idea emerged from The Irish Embassy Pub owner Jerry Hembury. Back in his lifeguarding days, Jerry used to compete in rough water swims in Southern California.The La Jolla rough water event would give  “Survivor Medals” if you completed the swim. Jerry liked the idea and brought it with him to Durango. This Saturday for the first time, riders (not racers) in the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic will receive a medal when they reach Silverton. The medal was based on a previous Iron Horse poster and designed by yours truly! Jerry, myself, and Embassy manager Phil Brennan sat with Race Director Gaige Sippy and Patti Zink and brainstormed the idea earlier this year. The Embassy has wanted to provide this sponsorship for many years and are very excited to have their idea come to fruition. We want to wish all the riders good luck, and we’ll see you Saturday in Silverton!
