2014 T Shirt Competition winner - 26 January 2014
Congratulations to Bethany Cuthbertson of Manor Park School in Aberdeen who has won our competition to design a t-shirt for this year's Balmoral road races.
The 11 year-old primary seven pupil's artwork will be worn by close to 1500 runners in the MPH primary schools 1.5Km and the Kongsberg Maritime secondary schools 2.5Km races on 26th April.
Bethany, who received a voucher from sports retailer Run-4-It as a prize, is thrilled to have won the contest which attracted more than 200 entries from schools across the north east.
She said:"I'm very pleased but I don't know what I'll think when I see everyone wearing the t-shirt."
Bethany, who also enjoys football and ice skating, will be taking part in the 1.5Km run along with 15 of her schoolmates.
Manor Park teacher Jim Addison, who is an enthusiastic runner himself, said:"I'm pleased for Bethany. She has done very well.
"We'll be taking a full minibus of pupils to Balmoral as it's an event we have been going to for quite a number of years. It's a great day out for everyone."
James Knowles, Chairman of Balmoral Road Races, said: "Bethany's design is fantastic and I'm sure she'll be proud to see so many runners wearing it in the races. We were delighted to receive so many entries of such a high quality, which made it very difficult to choose a winner. I'd like to thank everyone who took part for taking the time to get involved."
