How will I get my t-shirt?
We are now mailing all t-shirts directly to all participants. Register early to guarantee you’ll receive your t-shirt before event day!
In order to receive your shirt in time for Race day*, you must register by Sunday, August 13, 2023 at 11:59pm Central. Participants who register after Sunday, August 13, 2023 will receive your shirt(s) by mail after the event.
*Shirts are being mailed via USPS. As with any shipping provider, delays may occur.
Please note: there will be no t-shirts available for pick up either pre-event or on event day. Thank you for your commitment to Susan G. Komen and our efforts to simplify our t-shirt process.
Why are all t-shirts being mailed this year?
