You asked us to switch up the swag at some races. After all, don’t we all have enough cotton t-shirts? So, this race, all participants (including HMF FitKids) will get a really cool knit beanie! If you still want a long sleeve t-shirt from the race, you can order one for just $15 (good old cotton in unisex sizes) or $25 (high tech wicking fabric in mens and ladies sizes).

Optional Race Shirt

Optional race shirt can be purchased online during the registration process until November 13, 2016. If you register online after that date, you may purchase the optional shirt on race day (while supplies last).
