The refined logos for the inaugural HaverHalf and Haver10 races have been released.
Castle Manor Academy student Thomas Claydon was triumphant in designing the logo, which has subsequently been refined and digitalised by race sponsor Stylize Display Graphics.
Race director Jack Tappin said: “I’m really pleased with the design as it shows off one of Haverhill’s iconic structures and clearly shows what the event is all about.
“It was tough to choose as there were a good number of innovative and eye catching designs.”
The logos were also judged by Suffolk County Councillors Anne Gower and Tony Brown, Real Bodies Health and Fitness, Sanofi, Stylize Display Graphics, Castle Manor, GreenAir Cars and Matthew Hancock MP.
Haverhill Town Council and Cllr Julian Flood were invited to vote but did not get their votes in on time.
HaverHalf and Haver10 will be held on May 11, setting off at 9.30am from the recreation ground in Camps Road.
