The second annual Iron Mountain Road and Trail Half Marathon is coming up in September, but coordinators need your help with t-shirt designs.
Local artists are invited to submit drawings for this year's race t-shirt. The winner will receive recognition on the day of the race as well as a free race entry and shirt. Organizers are looking for submissions that include part of the route and local landmarks of the county.
â??What we would like to see is something related to the scenery; Iron Mountain, Dickinson county, that kind of thing,â?? said Vice President of the organization, Russ Kassin. â??Anything involving runners, hikers. Again, the scenery is important because this is a road and trail. It's a unique event; it involves both Fumee Lake and the trail system but also involves downtown Iron Mountain, as well."
All of the proceeds from the race will benefit the Dickinson County Cancer Loan Closet. The deadline to submit art entries for the t-shirt designs is Monday, July 29. Visit their website or Facebook page for more information on submitting an entry.
