A competition being run by the Herald and Stratford Rotary Club to design the finishers’ medal for 2022’s event is now underway!

2020’s winning design by 11 year old Matilda Jefferson

All creative individuals under the age of 18 living in the Warwickshire area are being asked to submit a design with a chance to have it made into the medals which will be handed out to 3,500 runners at the Shakespeare Marathon on 24th April 2022.

The competition also offers the winner a £50 Amazon voucher and the chance to have their design featured on a t-shirt.

Law firm Shakespeare Martineau is the sponsor of the medals and Andrew Smith, head of the firm’s Stratford office, will be one of the competition judges. Entrants are asked to consider designs that best represent the marathon and the town of Stratford upon Avon. TOP TIP: Having judged many of the previous years’ entries, Andrew says that designs that are bold and clear to see always stand out the best!
