Chew Valley School Year 10 pupil Fergus Blyth (pictured) has won this year’s competition to design a technical T shirt for the upcoming Chew Valley 10k on Sunday 10 June at 9.30am.

Fergus, 14, from Ubley, says he wanted to create a design with Chew Valley lake at its centre. “I’ve really enjoyed working on the Chew Valley 10k T shirt design as part of my Product Design GCSE coursework,” he said. “I’m hoping to enter the race this year so it’ll be great seeing my T shirt being worn by hundreds of runners as I run.”

The Chew Valley 10k is now open for entry and organisers are hoping for another successful year for the race, which is now in its 6th year and attracts almost 850 runners of all abilities, all of whom receive the free technical Chew Valley 10k T shirt.

This year the event will support two local charities, St Peter’s Hospice SW and Bloodbikes NICU Support, as well as raising money for local schools Bishop Sutton Primary School Society and Chew Valley School Society.

Debbie Fortune Estate Agents will be the main sponsor for this year’s event and Joanna Tiley, Director, commented: “We are all looking forward to being part of this amazing event again and hope to see lots of local faces running. I particularly enjoy seeing local runners around the valley in their CV10k T shirts, reminding me what a big event this has now become.”
