Once you get your race bib at the registration tent, go over to the t-shirt tent. We set up the tent by t-shirt sizes (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL), so hop in the line of the t-shirt size you want. There is a t-shirt tab on your race bib that we will collect when we give you your t-shirt. We purchase a high quality pre-shrunk cotton shirt, so there is minimal shrinkage; they stay true to size.
You can pick up t-shirts for your teammates if you have their t-shirts tabs from their bibs. If you pick up the wrong size, they can come switch out the shirt later.
The T-Shirt tent will be open after the race as well, but the size selection will be reduced the later you pick up your shirt.
T-shirts will be for sale after most of the racers have picked up their shirts. The cost will be $5.00.
Any leftover shirts following the race will be donated to a charity in need of clothing. Post-Race:
Refreshments will be provided to participants after the race.
