We heard you. You prefer t-shirts to hats.
Hopefully, next year June 4, 2023 we’ll have t-shirts waiting for you at the finish line.
This year we had hats.
And we also were giving away LEFTOVER t-shirts from the canceled 2020 race/2021 virtual race. They WERE NOT t-shirts for this year’s race.
You DID NOT miss out on a shirt at the finish line.
We also gave away all our leftover 2020->2022 Volunteer shirts.
We get it, you like commemorative shirts.
However, in December 2020 when we needed to place our order for over 2000 shirts, two things were at play.
- We weren’t sure what the COVID pandemic had in story for us 6 months into the future. The volunteers at the finish line who hand out t-shirts are the Hartland Boy Scouts. We wanted to minimize their contact with our runners so hats were the best option.
- Supply chain issues-it was really difficult to find sizes and colors, again hats were the best option.
We hope you will enjoy your hats and wear them proudly-you all did a great job last Sunday.
