This week’s topic is Race shirts: Faves and the ones we love to hate.
I have run over 170 races so I have gotten a lot of shirts!! Some I’ve loved and some I’ve never worn again.
I like those race shirts that are practical meaning that I will wear them after the race.
Here are some of my favorites:
- Perfect 10 miler 2014
This hoodie is made of tech material and I love the color and the fit. I’ve worn it many times.
- Mother’s Day bRUNCh 5k 2015
This one is also a tech shirt. I love the bright color and the design.
- Adirondack Distance Run 2014
This is the only race shirt that I have gotten that is sleeveless. I wear it often in the summer.
- Delmar Dash 2014
This one is v-necked, long sleeve and very comfortable. I also like the colors.
- Bacon Hill Bonanza 2014
What I like about this short-sleeved shirt besides the color is that it has NO SPONSORS on the back. I have even worn it to play tennis.
- Last Run 2010.
This race used to give windbreakers every year. So I also have one in orange, blue, green & yellow. They are so practical.
- Walkway Half Marathon 2015
I like this shirt because it is very light and made out of all natural materials.
- Freihofer’s Run for Women 2012
I love the purple color and the material of this shirt. I have another in green but they have since change the style and material.
- Great Pumpkin Challenge 2014
This is a great shirt for the fall. I have it in black and yellow, as well.
And which race shirts do I hate?
Well, any one that is unisex. They do not fit. The sleeves are too long and they are too big even in a size small.
And any shirt that is 100% cotton.
Happy Running! Where did you get your favorite race shirt? Why do you love it?
