Mathews Marathon Event Logo

2022 Contest Winner Announcement

Wrightly Reed, Race Director for Mathews Marathon event, announced today the winning selection for the event logo. Wrightly solicits entries from our local students – at Mathews High School – for the artwork.

Last year’s winner, Aiden Sowers, set the bar for the future. His design of a Great Blue Heron – complete with running shoes – was a fantastic trademark for the race and the area. This image appeared on the finisher medal for the Full & Half Marathon and on the custom hoodie sweatshirt that all race participants received.

Congratulations Jordan Hunley!

Thank you to all of the entries for the Mathews Marathon logo contest – it was a really difficult choice to make. These artists selected from local history for references – Captain Sally Tompkins – and our tourism logo “Be Here” as a backdrop. It was clear that a great deal of thought and talent went into the work. The winning design – created by Jordan Hunley – is a wonderful companion to the running blue heron from 2021: a running blue crab.
