“Dogwood Blossoms on the Avenue” is the winning T-shirt design for this year’s Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10K.
Sports Backers announced the winner on Wednesday after the public voted on three designs. The design incorporates dogwood blossoms, the turnaround at the halfway point of the race, and the row homes along the course.
Participants in the March 28 race will receive the shirt.
Sports Backers and the 10K will be the game-day sponsor for VCU’s 2 p.m. game against Rhode Island on Saturday. Along with promotions at the game, Sports Backers is giving away two four-packs of tickets to the game on the 10K Facebook page (facebook.com/ukropsmonumentavenue10k).
