Race Medal Display Rack

Wondering how to display your race medals? A medal display case can often be too costly or too small, but here is an easy, affordable, race marathon medal display rack idea that anyone can do. 

Make Your Own Medal Rack DisplayCompleting a race is a big deal and you should display your medals proudly, but you don’t want to break the bank doing it. Professional medal racks are pricey. There is no need to drop a ton of coin on a medal display.

I post a lot of pics on my Instagram account (@HalfCrazyMama) of my medal wall and I get asked all the time, “What kind of rack do you use?”.  You can find medal racks for sale online, but they are often small and expensive.

I got these curtain rods at Target for a fraction of the medal racks online prices.

Another tip, be sure to bolt them in tight to the studs in the wall because all those medals can get really heavy.  My husband secured these really well.

    This is great! ive been looking at coat racks instead but again everything is so small…. This looks much sturdier. And i can still add a piece of art or something over the top 🙂

    Great stuff!
