Winning design crystal clear to Deeside Mineral Water and Baker Hughes


Eleven-year-old Daisy Rennie’s design was picked from more than 100 entries sent into the competition run by Deeside Mineral Water, an official partner of the Baker Hughes 10K Running Festival.

The winning design will be printed onto the label appearing on the 15,000 water bottles that will be handed out on race day, Sunday 14th May. Daisy will also be invited to officially start the 10k road race. 

This year marks the 30th year of the North East’s well-established road race organised by registered charity Sport Aberdeen in partnership with Baker Hughes. Young people from schools across Aberdeen were asked to design labels which focus on the importance of staying hydrated.

Commenting, Sport Aberdeen’s Director of Business Development Jill Franks said:

“Sport Aberdeen would like to offer its congratulations to Daisy, and sincere thanks to all of the children who took part in this fun competition. So much imagination went into the designs and theme.

“I’d also like to thank Deeside Mineral Water for supporting us for the second year.

“There’s been such a positive buzz about the Baker Hughes 10k Running Festival, now in its 30thyear. It’s not too late to sign up and get involved.”

Martin Simpson, Managing Director of Deeside Mineral Water commented:

“We were impressed by the quality of entries we received this year.  There were some really innovative designs and it was great fun to judge.

“We look forward to inviting Daisy to the Deeside Mineral Water factory to see her label design being applied to the bottles we will produce for participants of the race.”
