Blue Back hatYou asked us to switch up the swag at some races. After all, don’t we all have enough cotton t-shirts? So, this race, the first 2500 entries 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 $20 (high tech wicking fabric in mens and ladies sizes) during the registration process. Kids running in the HMF FitKids Run have not had their fill of cotton shirts so their entry includes a short sleeved cotton shirt. Want to upgrade the kids shirt to long sleeve technical – just $20. Kids also want a knit beanie? – Just $7.

Optional Race Shirt

Optional race shirt can be purchased online during the registration process until November 23, 2014. If you register online after that date, you may purchase the optional shirt on race day (while supplies last).
