Parkrun Milestone t-shirts - How to claim yours!
Pro:Direct Running have been the official supplier of free parkrun Milestone tee's since May 2018. We've been proud to help runners to celebrate their achievements and be rewarded for their dedication. After all, qualifying for any of the parkrun milestone tee's is a moment to be very proud of, that's a lot of miles!
WHAT IS A PARKRUN MILESTONE T-SHIRT?
parkrun introduced the free milestone t-shirt incentive to commemorate runners who have participated regularly. Designed to celebrate their running achievements, the milestone T-shirts are awarded after completing a set number of official parkruns, starting with 10 for juniors and 50 for adults, then for reaching the following milestones: 100, 250 and 500. Yes, 500 – that’s almost 10 years of running parkruns every weekend!
Each parkrun Milestone T-shirt has a different colour so it’s easy to turn up and spot a fresh 50 from a fulfilling 500. And they’re handy for knowing who has the most experience so you can ask for course tips or beginners’ advice to get the most out of your parkrun experience.
To claim your parkrun milestone t-shirt from Pro:Direct Running you will need to have run and officially recorded the amount of milestone parkruns, as illustrated above. You can check how many you have run by logging into your account on the parkrun website or checking your latest results email.
Once you have completed your milestone run and earned the right to your free tee you will be sent an email directly from parkrun to congratulate you, which will contain a unique link through to prodirectrunning.com. From here you will be able to select a size and order your free parkrun milestone tee.
Top tip: add £20 worth of items to your order and you’ll avoid paying the additional £3.95 UK delivery charge. So, whether it’s a new pair of running shoes, some running clothing, nutrition or accessories, take a look at all of our running gear to find something to help you reach your next milestone!
Your items will be shipped by Pro:Direct Running and delivery times may vary depending on your location and the delivery method you selected at the checkout.
For anyone who has already claimed their parkrun milestone T-shirt we’d like to say a huge well done and we hope to see you getting the next one soon.
