For the 15th consecutive year, Patch Sprint veteran (and five-time world champion of the world) Jim Kobak has designed the annual event logo. Kobak's themes place a premium on originality, creativity and shock factor, always incorporating the four mountains of the Patch Sprint within the artwork.
The 2015 theme is Patch Sprint Warriors. "The Patch Sprint is a battle... an emotional, mental, physical, psychological, metaphorical, existential, sartorial, orificial, palatial, visceral, extraterrestrial battle.
Each of the four peaks represents a barbaric battle that racers must wage in the great war of the Patch Sprint.
"Patch Sprint Warriors must persevere!"
As for each of the figures within the picture, Kobak writes:
The 2015 Warrior picture will appear on the front of the special limited edition Patch Sprint T-shirt, free for all registered racers, trekkers, Kindersprinters and volunteers.
As in past years, the annual theme will be incorporated into the spring BEAST training race series. "Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women" - KONG (or Conan the Barbarian).
