8. Is there an option to not have a medal?

"Thanks for being the motivating reason behind my huge back to running in 2020 ...Strava says my most kudoed activity was my August 10k "
I love entering these virtual races – really gives me something to get up in the mornings for! I nearly put it off this morning as it was so cold but I got myself up and out and just got it done
