    With that fleeted running shoe, it's probably a race medal. Soak it in mineral oil should bring up some better detail on the lettering on the rev. Good luck. Peace Roy

    I agree. Race metal. Broken loop where the ribbon would have been. Winged shoe and stopwatch.

    Lot’s of times Kids lose them off of their letter jackets at Cross Country or Track meets.

    Medals must have been from larger schools or a more recent innovation. I was a track and cross country runner, undefeated in my last two years in High School (Half mile, 180 yard low hurdles and 2.5 mile cross country), and we never got medals... Usually just a write up in the local paper. Cheers, RickO

    You sure had a different combination of events. Cross Country was 2 miles when I was in high school. Kids would say "You want us to run how far?'

    @pocketpiececommems ... Yep... The half mile was run on a circular, quarter mile track (two laps)... and since I was also doing cross country (2.5 miles), the half was like a sprint for me.... Set the school record back then.... Cheers, RickO
