Project time in the USA

Check it out. I’m back in the States! It’s good, and stange, to be back, but I’ll write about that later. Right now I want to post about my newest project, designing the Seoul Flyers Chuncheon Marathon T Shirt. The Chuncheon Marathon is one of the most famous marathons in Korea, and is one of 3 Boston qualifying races in Korea. Not to mention it will be my first marathon! This shirt is just for the members of my running group, the Seoul Flyers to wear on race day and in the all-important group photo. Needs to be snazzy.
This is what it looks like in October in Chuncheon Korea: (The marathon will take place on October 24):
These are some examples of marathon t shirt/poster designs. Notice any trends?
These are the ones that appealed to me the most. Here’s the challenge: is there a way to say ‘marathon’ without including an image of a runner or the course map? I’m not opposed to using these types of images, but there’s just so many designs with running figures already out there it feels a little dry.
