Both athletes are depicted mid-run with the athlete on the left handing a baton to the athlete on the right. Printed in relief around the central figures is the text, [ATLANTIC CITY · H · S · RELAY CARNIVAL]. On the reverse of the medal, engraved in the center, is text that reads [COLLEGE FRESHMEN / ONE MILE RELAY / 1934]. Along the bottom edge is a stamped maker’s mark that reads, [BALFOUR].
