The race director is on the ball for the 2012 Lodi Mother’s Day Run. Online registration is open, posters are getting put up and the brochures are on the way!
The Lodi Mother’s Day Run (LMDR) committee is lookng forward to another great event with a new day. This years race will be on Saturday, May 12, 2012.
New for 2012: We have added a 10k run and later start times for the 5 & the new 10k. Also, the kids events ( one mile and 1/2 mile race) will be FREE and include youth T’s and finisher medals.
We held a logo contest this year, open to the public to get a new logo. We feel the selected logo, designed by Jim Salzman of Dane, WI, accurately reflects the nature of the run. Rural in nature, hilly, farmland, and fun.
See you on May 12, 2012.

Just as you need a village to raise a child, an athletic event of the scope of the the Lodi Mother’s Day Half Marathon & 5K needs volunteers and sponsors to get all the work done. This is especially so with an inaugural event. If it weren’t for friends and friends of friends we just couldn’t get this done.
Start with a logo
Once you have the name and the concept of the event, you need a logo. Brett Sackett of Geebo Design provided the graphic design concepts and layout for both the design of the logo and the race brochure. One never knows exactly what they get themselves into when they offer some free in kind work. As someone who has worked for different consulting firms, I understand that sometimes the work can go beyond a simple logo.
In this case, the logo went through two revisions and a slight color change to help make sure the website and logo worked together!
We lovc our logo and can’t wait until its on more than our website. Those shirts, brochures and posters will really standout with the work by Brett. Thanks for your help and the donation of your time to get us off on the right “foot.”
