The 2017 Cooper River Bridge Run may still be seven months, six days away, but runners already know the image that will represent next year’s event.

Unveiled Wednesday, the winning design was created by local artist Tate Nation, whose works have been commissioned by such big names as the U.S. Postal Service, Coca-Cola, and Delta. With a style described as non-traditional and vibrant, Nation was a featured artist for the 2000 and 2010 Piccolo Spoleto Festival. For creating the winning design, he will receive $1,000, 100 posters, and 24 T-shirts all bearing his artwork, so hopefully he has plenty of available closets and wall space.

The 40th annual Cooper River Bridge Run is scheduled for Saturday, April 1, 2017. Nation’s design will be featured on the Bridge Run T-shirts, posters, and promotional material, and all other design entries will be auctioned off to raise money for charity.
There’s still plenty of time to register for next year’s run. Those wishing to participate can sign up by visiting the official Bridge Run website at
