“Finish Line” is the ideal template for your upcoming race, walk, or fun run. This 5k certificate was designed for participants of both competitive and charitable events.
Our no-frills editor will allow event organizers to customize and print awards within minutes of a race’s end. The Finish Line template includes fields for an event title, a runner’s name, and placement text.
While our 5k certificate template does not include fields for the names of event coordinators by default, you can add this information in place of the award message near the bottom of the document. Alternatively, you can include an event date and congratulatory text in this field as we’ve done in our example.
How do I customize my 5k certificate?
We designed our award template editor for maximum ease of use. To begin, click or tap any customize button or link on the template overview page.
Type directly onto the award preview to edit names and messages after the editor launches. Alternatively, you can edit text using the fields located beneath the preview.
Take note of the medal to the left of our 5k certificate template as you apply edits. Like all document text, you can edit the default value in this element as well. If you’re omitting placement text to the right, make sure you clear out the medal text too.
Finally, use the swatches and dropdowns above the award preview to assign custom colors to your certificate. For best results, apply colors similar to those that you’ve used in marketing materials for your fun run or 5k.
When finished, you can print your award from your home or office printer at no cost. Otherwise you may save your work for later as long as you’re signed in.
Why should I host a 5k race?
5k races, walks, and fun runs encourage healthy habits and can bring awareness to worthy causes. While many participants will race for fun, others will collect donations for local charities in exchange for a guaranteed finish.
A well-organized 5k benefits everyone involved, including the runners that race and the companies that sponsor them. Regardless of whether participants are presented with a 5k certificate or not, the positive impacts of events like these can be long-lasting and far-reaching.
