Deadline approaching to submit designs for the event’s commemorative poster
Town Center Community announced open registration for its 2024 Noonday Shanty 5K & 10K race. Taking place along the Noonday Creek Trail, it is a USA Track and Field-certified race managed by Start2Finish, formally Orion Racing.
With a paved course and two race lengths available, runners and walkers are encouraged to participate and experience Town Center’s scenic views. From Aviation Park to Cobb International Airport and Fifth Third Bank Stadium, the event will highlight the area’s many attractions including wetlands, bird habitats and public art displays.
“This is my favorite event because it offers the opportunity for us to engage and invest in our community,” said Jennifer Hogan, director of community at Town Center Community. “The event energy and support is amazing, and the proceeds from the race are reinvested right back into the community in the form of greenspace and trail projects in Town Center.”
Town Center Community initiated a call for artists to submit designs, digital or hand-drawn, for the Noonday Shanty 5K & 10K poster offering a cash prize for first and second-place winners. The first-place design will be the official event poster and will be given away at packet pick-up and featured in various promotional materials for the race. The deadline for submissions is February 12, 2024. Contest details are available at https://www.towncentercid.com/event-details-registration/poster-design-contest.
