2022’s winning design by 12 year old Poppy Pragnall

Poppy Pragnall, age 12, of Kitebrook Preparatory School has won the medal design competition for the Shakespeare Marathon & Half Marathon 2022!
Poppy’s design wowed the judging panel with its wonderful image of the Bard himself crossing the finish line and reflected the overall feeling of joy from the judges and event organisers at being able to hold the event again in 2022.
A huge thanks to Stratford Herald for running the competition and Andrew Smith from Shakespeare Martineau – Shakespeare Marathon’s medal sponsor for 2022 and panel judge. Thank you also to Sporting Print for providing Poppy with a bespoke t-shirt featuring her medal design.
