Let’s talk t-shirts!

The 'wheel' is a perfectly formed thing, it doesn't need to be reinvented. We've had a lot of questions about club T-shirts lately and the vast majority of them are answered by this post from Colwick parkrun which we've Pontefracticated a little...


Unless you are brand new to parkrun or have been ‘away’ you will be aware of the fact that the parkrun Club t-shirts have been pretty hard to get hold of lately.

In brief… everyone who has qualified for a t-shirt will get one!Hopefully most of you will have seen our founder Paul Sinton-Hewitt’s message 'Introducing free milestone t-shirts for everyone' and if not you can read that here.

So to put a bit of meat on the bones... if you qualified for your t-shirt and ordered it before the ordering system was pulled at the beginning of December you will have made it on to the definitive back-order list.The back-order list has been passed to Tribe Sports (check them out – lovely stuff).

Once those 5,000+ Club t-shirts have been made they will be sent in bulk to parkrun and redistributed to event teams to hand out as before.Those who qualified before the cut-off point but didn't order their t-shirt, and those who have qualified since will come under the new system. They will be able to order their t-shirts via a link on their parkrun profile. This will be sent by our friends at Wiggle directly to your door.The process is explained in more detail in PSH's message.

If you would like to have your milestone t-shirt presented at Pontefract parkrun to rapturous applause just bring it along and we will be absolutely delighted to do that for you.

The other great news to impart is that we are going to have a Volunteer Club! This is great for people like Yvonne, Anne and Ken who never runs but come along week after week to volunteer for us. We can't wait to see them in their volunteer t-shirts.Did you know that you can voice your opinion on the colour and icon of the volunteer t-shirt? Here is the link to vote.
