Background info about the race, can be found at the event's web page at:
The race is part of "Earth Week:"
Target is runners of all levels & ages. But as a 5K, it can have a more 'fun/casual' style to the design.
The Gatlinburg city logo is a black bear set against the Smoky Mountains. (see uploaded files)
We'd like to see designs taken in one of two directions:
1) A running black bear in sneakers, possibly wearing a shirt with an Earth/globe on it. This design can either be a cartoonish bear or more realistic, stylized like woodcut, similar to the bear in the City logo.
2) An Earth/globe rising from behind the Smoky Mountains (as on the current City logo). This is a more "upscale" design, adhering closer to the current logo -- the Earth should be woodcut in style.
NEED to have:
- The words "1st Annual" incorporated -- and be easily updated on an annual basis, by simply swapping out the number area.
WANT to have:
- Gatlinburg's cardinal coordinates somewhere on the design: 35.7° N, 83.5° W
