Back in December we started making preparations with Hannah Day at Teach First to provide some printed running vests and bags for her and a number of colleagues who were taking on a huge task. They had decided to run the Reading Half Marathon and needed some personalised performance vests to make them stand out!
Teach First are currently celebrating their 10th Year and as such have designed some special branding to mark the event. Teach First are a charity who tries to ensure that a child’s educational success is not limited by their socio-economic background. They do this by supplying talented young teachers into schools in disadvantaged areas to make a difference! Running in the half marathon was all about raising much needed extra funds for the charity.
The vest they chose was the JC007 by Just Cool, the new performance brand from AWDis. They are not only expertly produced but have a great pricepoint and also have a range of 30 vibrant colours. To make them stand out, they actually chose my favourite AWDis colour; Sapphire Blue. We applied the 10 years branding to the front of the vest and a printed mission statement to the back in navy blue.
The half marathon took place last weekend and Hannah told us that she found the experience very tough, but managed to complete the marathon in 2 hours 5 minutes, which we think is a fantastic achievement. We would like to congratulate Hannah and her colleagues on completing the half marathon and also thank them for sending through these photos of the day (click to enlarge).
