We have been extensively researching into what runners consider important, and sustainability is fast becoming the most important area. Click HERE to see what RunThrough is doing for sustainability.
T-Shirts at events have been a hot topic mainly around them not being a high enough quality to wear on a regular basis. We have decided to tackle this by offering a T-Shirt (Women – CLICK HERE | Men – CLICK HERE) with a retail value of £22 for £12 with the addition of the event logo printed on the chest.
We can do this with our partner RT Kit as part of a strategic decision to not only raise awareness about the quality of the product but also to counteract the increasing costs incurred in event production in a post-COVID world.
ONCE YOU ENTER YOU WILL RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL. MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WHERE TO COLLECT YOUR NUMBER WILL BE SENT CLOSER TO THE EVENT – ENJOY!
