FINISHER

QMT finishers receives a glass of the current edition. As an environmentally conscious organization, we traded the medal for a glass. Since the medal is a non-reusable object, we prefer to give a souvenir that will make you share your race memories over a beer or a good beverage of your choice. Isn’t that the idea…
