Graduation badge questions

Oldishrunner profile image

I have just completed W9r3 and would like to receive my graduation badge. So the first question is how do I go about it and the second, do you really get a physical badge (excuse the possible naivety of the second question). If the badge is real don't you need my full address? More than happy to make a contribution if you let me know what is appropriate.

The little grey smudge next to a runner's name, with graduate written on it is all you get, I am afraid.........well actually I am glad the NHS is not spending money on physical badges.

To get your smudge, look in the pinned posts to the right of the page, and add a message to the December 2018 graduate post and the smudge faeries will do their magic.

Congratulations Oldishrunner on completing C25K with week 9 run 3. Yes the badge is the word GRADUATE 🎓 next to your username.

When I graduated last June I also thought it was a "virtual badge" they sent you designed by RunaroundSue which is at the top of the C25K Healthunlocked home page for whatever month you graduate, nevertheless seeing the word GRADUATE 🎓 next to your username after you complete run 3 of week 9 is a very proud moment. 😊 🏃 🎓

But if you'd like a real badge, there was a small sportswear firm doing them (I have one)

And then you can dip your toe in the world of virtual event medals...

Congratulations. I think medal comes up on the app once you've completed. I'm sure you don't get a real one sent you.

You are correct BarbaraH4... The NHS is struggling enough finding funds. However if anyone would like to purchase a physical badge I am the official supplier to this forum and still have a few left. More info on this link...

I downloaded the certificate, shrunk it and have made it into a fridge magnet, close enough to a badge for me 👍

Congratulations Oldishrunner. It's good seeing the graduation word after our names.
