About Our Artists


In 2015, we reverted to a tradition of supporting the local arts by choosing a local artist to design the race logo and theme. Our unique design for 2015 was created by Robert Bridges — a loyal Bluegrass Runner who often frequents the Saturday morning run group when he’s not chasing his children or making friends with the local fox.


Robert’s illustrations are fantastic and unique and you can check out his work at his website and even buy something in his shop on Etsy. Naturally, he also has a Twitter feed and a Facebook page – enjoy and support the local arts!
Robert’s horse and runner design from 2015 has been updated for this year’s race by our very own Matt Reno, Former BGR President and operator of Matt Reno Logos. Other than running, Matt’s true passion is design and branding. He loves creating visuals that help organizations connect with their customers and communities and has designed logos for a wide range of clients. We are happy to support Matt and local talent!
