The medal that will be awarded to finishers of the 2014 Little Rock Marathon.

Little Rock Marathon officials unveiled Thursday afternoon the medal designs for this year's races, revealing that finishers will take home superhero-themed medals and ribbons.

The red, black and yellow-colored medals will feature comic book-style lettering and graphics, with “EPIC” written in similar script on the front, according to a news release from marathon officials.

The medals will vary according to the distance run, with full marathon finishers receiving an 8 1/2-inch version that weighs more than 2 1/2 pounds and comes with a custom ribbon. Half-marathon runners will get 4-inch version of the medal that weighs about 14 ounces, marathon officials said.

The 12th annual marathon, which will take place March 2, is the culmination of a weekend of festivities that include a 5K a children's race.

Officials said the 15,000 race spots available are expected to sell out.
