Road Race Officials Confident Boilermaker Race 44 Will Go On This Year And With New Logo
With 143 days to go until race day on Culver Ave, Boilermaker officials unveiled the 2021 race logo this morning.
The logo was designed by Ryan McGrogan of McGrogan Design. McGrogan says the new logo prominently features the permanent finish line arch on Court Street and also represents a shift from the organization’s recurring color scheme to a fall-themed color palette.
“This unique take on Boilermaker 44 pays respect to the challenging and historic circumstances we find ourselves in while also looking forward to much better days, just ahead,” said Boilermaker Marketing Director, Jordan Peters. “The beloved finish line arch is a perfect symbol for the reunion of the Boilermaker with its community this fall.”
Coinciding with the logo unveiling, the Boilermaker has made available, for online purchase only, a small number of limited edition performance shirts featuring the new logo
