Steamtown Marathon Medals Finally Arrive

October 5, 2018

The wait, and worry, is over. Medals for the 23rd annual Steamtown Marathon arrived in Scranton on Friday afternoon, ending a marathon journey of their own to Northeast Pennsylvania. The medals were ordered months ago and originally scheduled to arrive by Sept. 24. However, the ship carrying the medals was delayed during a stop in the Carolinas that coincided with when Hurricane Florence made landfall. As a result, the ship did not arrive in New York City and the delivery of the medals was delayed almost two weeks. — STAFF REPORT
