Triumph Mile Logo
myTEAM TRIUMPH (mTT) is an athletic ride-along program created for children, teens, adults and veterans with disabilities who would normally not be able to experience endurance events such as triathlons or road races. The participants with disabilities are known as "Captains," and the athletes who have the honor of pushing and pulling the Captains on the course are called their "Angels." The triumph mile is a walk/run for mildly disabled Captains, guided by Angels. As with other mTT events, the Triumph Mile is intended to enrich the health and well-being of individuals with disabilities by fostering lasting, authentic relationships through the teamwork environment of endurance athletics.
About the Logo
I wanted to design a logo that would communicate the relationship between Angels and the Captain. In the end, the logo that was selected mirrors the design of the official mTT logo. The red is symbolic of the red shirts worn by the Angels in every race and training run. There is a visible anthropomorphic quality to the logo - the overlapped "stars" become two people standing connected, representing the standing support the Angel gives to the Captain as they walk together across the finish, arms angled upward in a state of triumph.
