Colorado Springs, CO, February 27, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Bigwig Races, a Colorado Springs-based promoter of 5K and 10K races, released the details today of a contest to determine the design of the t-shirt that will be used for its Hams and Hamstrings 5K race planned for April 20.
The race will start and finish at the 7-Eleven® at 7718 E. Woodmen, located north of Woodmen Road, just west of Marksheffel Road.
The Hams and Hamstrings 5K, billed as “Colorado’s Easter Day 5K,” is open to serious runners, walkers, teens and families. Costume prize winners and first, second and third place finishers will take home an Easter ham as their prize.
The event drew more than 400 runners in 2012, its first year but was not held in 2013. “We learned a lot our first year and expect even more runners this year,” Claar said. “This is a great chance for some lucky artist to have their handiwork featured on hundreds of shirts in the community.”
Entry deadline is March 17. Complete contest details are available at hurry.to/shirt.
Complete race information and registration for the race is available at hamsandhamstrings.com.
