Want to know more about this years bespoke medal design?

We are delighted to hear so many of you love the MSMW 2020 medals. We’d like to say a massive thank you to White Rabbit Events for the fabulous design.

Read on to find out more about White Rabbit Events, the artist, Kat, and how she went about designing these incredible medals!

About white rabbit events by Medal designer Kat

One of the services offered by White Rabbit Events is bespoke, in-house medal and logo design. I (Kat) am an artist who creates from the heart, to capture imagination and inspire those who I reach – from organisers to recipients.

From start to finish my design process focuses on bringing the core of the event or brand to life. I spend time researching and discussing the background and history of an event with the client, really getting to understand their journey, passion and goals. Above all, I want the finished design to make my clients and their awesome recipients to feel inspired, proud and a part of something special.

How kat created the design for msmw 2020 medals

The Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend 2020 medal vision was to create a design which was unique, commemorative and captured the spirit of the event. MSMW is one of a kind, with 3 different races, over 3 days in 3 Mid Sussex towns (under normal circumstances!). This event really brings these communities together, working with local leisure centres and businesses, responsibly showcasing the scenic environment each town has to offer, supporting charities along with providing races for all of the family and a supportive volunteer team!

To capture the importance of the environment and community, I chose historical landmarks / places of interest from each town and together with MSMW organisers and the respective Councils, we agreed that these places reflected the community spirit in each town. They each play an important role and are places that each area is proud of. This fits the ethos of MSMW perfectly.

I then set about creating the design so that the elements would look detailed and striking, both individually and when they are overlaid as the Marathon or Half Marathon Finishers set. Myself and the MSMW team are very proud of the results and we’re really enjoying seeing the worthy recipients showing them off!

Kat is now busy planning something else very exciting for MSMW 2020 runners, so watch this space for further details!

Hayward’s Heath 10 Miles & 5 Miles

Day 2 of The Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend usually takes place in the thriving town of Hayward’s Heath, in the heart of Mid Sussex. Here we start in the lovely Victoria Park and runners continue through beautiful rural lanes and secluded woodland paths.

 The Town can trace it’s origins back to 1544 but the completion of the London and Brighton Railway Line in 1841 marked the rapid expansion of Hayward’s Heath.

This year, you may not be able to run The Hayward’s Heath 10 Mile but can still complete the event virtually and will bag the Hayward’s Heath Medal for completing either a 10 Mile or 5 Mile. Alternatively, you might like to try the 1 Mile or the 1K Family Fun Run!

Complete the distance in any location near to you, or even at home if you can’t go out. You can run, walk, skip or cycle your chosen distance!

The choice is yours!

Sign up now, you have until 28th June 2020 to enter and until 1st July 2020 to complete your distance!

If you live in the Hayward’s Heath area, here’s a few suggestions for local places to run and walk;

Before setting off, do check they are open and remember to follow the latest government advice to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
