The medal for this year’s Dublin Marathon pays tribute to WB Yeats on the 100th anniversary of his Nobel Prize.
The design was revealed with 50 days to go before the annual event.
A quote from the Dublin playwright and poet is engraved across the medal.
“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't met yet,” it reads.
Organisers say the quote “embodies the values” of the marathon, which is known worldwide as "the friendly marathon".
“There is an incredible camaraderie amongst the runners who are supported by hundreds of thousands of supporters with posters of encouragement and loud cheering voices around the course,” they said.
The race is a huge date in the Dublin calendar with organisers noting that the city “comes alive with positive support, energy, smiles and goodwill” every year.
Everyone who passes the finish line after completing the 26.2-mile (42.1km) challenge on the day will be presented with the unique medal.
