The exclusive 30th year medal is a re-work of the very first one awarded in 1987, taking inspiration from the original design and incorporating the wheelchair race which was established in 1996, with a blue ‘30’ in celebration of the 30th year. The enamelled medal will be hung from a blue ribbon branded with Sport Aberdeen and Baker Hughes logos.
Every participant will receive a branded t-shirt prior to the race and one of the exclusive 30th year medals alongside a goodie-bag at the finishing line.
General entries for the Baker Hughes 10K close, on Friday 14th April. The Granite City’s well-established road race takes place on Sunday 14th May.
Commenting, Sport Aberdeen’s Director of Business Development Jill Franks said:
“To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the race we have re-designed the medal to include elements from the original design in 1987 and included the diverse range of participants we welcome now, including the 10K wheelchair race which was introduced in 1996.
“This is a particularly significant year for the Baker Hughes 10k Running Festival, the Granite City’s most popular road race, and we are very excited to reveal the special addition medal.
“The Baker Hughes 10K Festival has gone from strength to strength over the years, with more participants signing up than ever. The race is an important part of Sport Aberdeen’s commitment to creating opportunities, inspiring people and changing lives through sport and physical activity within the community.”
Marketing Specialist for Baker Hughes, Lesley McMullan said:
“Baker Hughes has been the proud sponsor of the 10K Running Festival since it’s early years and we are delighted to see how the race has grown to become the much-loved sporting event which it is today.
“It would be great to see as many runners taking part as possible in this special celebratory year so don’t miss out and ensure that you sign up before the Friday deadline.”
