For 2016, we made a conscious decision to design all our run T-shirts in bold colors. Hampi had a Red-Brown-Orange color palette, Warangal had red with hints of yellow, white and blue – and now Ooty has Forest Green. This shade of green was a bit of a no-brainer since it best represents the natural beauty of the hill station’s countryside – its tea estates, rolling hills, meadows and valleys.
The Nilgiri Mountain Railway – running between Mettupalayam and Ooty – was granted World Heritage Site status over 10 years ago. The Go Heritage Run – Ooty routes traverse this very railway line and it influenced our minimal Ooty 2016 run T-shirt design – three enthusiastic heritage runners making their way along the railway tracks on the front and the silhouette of a steam engine on the back. We also found a way to fit the word “Ooty” quite snugly into the engine’s undercarriage!
