Choose the Cotton or Technical Shirt (men's and women's sizes available; technical shirts are high vis orange)!
If you already have too many cotton t-shirts in your dresser drawers, this offer is for you! Select the Technical Shirt option ($16.50 upgrade) at time of entry. At Late Registration/Packet Pick-up at DeVos Place, you'll receive a short sleeve, event-specific Technical Shirt instead of the white, 100% cotton Fifth Third River Bank Run t-shirt. The Technical Shirt will sport the same design as the race day shirt (but unlike the cotton shirt, also contain your event distance) but with a wicking fabric to pull moisture away from your skin while you run!
