All runners registered by October 24 receive the same shirt. At registration you'll also have the option to purchase extra shirts. If you register after October 24 registered runners will be given shirts if available.

The Great 38 Race Weekend 2018 shirt is a long sleeve dri-fit shirt. Most likely it will be Gildan or A4 brand depending on availability from the shirt companies at the time of order. If you choose Ladies Cut, PLEASE order at least one size larger than you typically wear because ladies cut dri-fit most always runs very small. Shirts can only be exchanged AFTER the race and exchanges depend on availability. All G38 shirts need to be picked up during the race weekend, October 26-28, 2018. We will not mail unclaimed shirts. Thank you.
