Hey! It's Christmas in July. You get presents!

Our shirts and medals are the best ever! We went out of our way to custom design race medals that are unlike any other you’ve ever seen!

For 2020, Santa is bringing you sublimated short sleeve tech shirts! These beauties are so comfortable to wear in warm weather.

Each year we give out awesome medals. For 2020, think snow globe! Check out these samples from past years as well as this year’s:
