Do I get a t-shirt?

All registered participants will receive an event t-shirt. The shirts for survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer will be in special colors to recognize their role in our event.

Register early to guarantee you’ll receive your shirt before event day!

How will I get my t-shirt?

We will mail all race packets including t-shirts for all participants who are registered by April 21st

In order to receive your race packet in time for Race day*, you must register by April 21, 2024 at 11:59pm Eastern.

Please note: If you register for the Race after April 21st, you can pick up your race bib and t-shirt on Race morning at the T-Shirt Tent. We cannot guarantee sizes for pick-up on event day..

*Shirts are being mailed via USPS. As with any shipping provider, delays may occur.

Why are all t-shirts being mailed this year?
