Launched back in 2016, the iconic ‘Apricot’ parkrun t-shirts have become a huge hit around the world, giving everyone the opportunity to proudly bear the name of their ‘home’ run, whilst also contributing to parkrun’s sustainability, as all the proceeds from the t-shirts goes back to parkrun.
Here in the Nordics the trend of buying the apricot t-shirts has slowly caught on and they are becoming a more common sight at our events.
As parkrun have been changing supplier for their t-shirts, the apricot range has recently been out of stock, but we are excited to let you know that new parkrun apricot t-shirts are soon on their way!
In a lighter, brighter shade of apricot and featuring an updated back design, the lightweight and breathable t-shirts are perfect whether you walk, jog, run or volunteer.
As before you’ll be able to customise your t-shirt with the name of your home or favourite parkrun, making it the perfect conversation-starter for parkrun tourists.
As soon as stock is in place, we’ll be letting everyone know so they can go in and buy it through the parkrun shop .
In the meantime, if you’re on the lookout for some other kit that will help to support parkrun, then you need look no further than the Contra range , launched by parkrun founder Paul Sinton-Hewitt this autumn.
Contra is a sports brand where the kit is ethically produced, using quality fabric and the best design, manufactured in European factories paying staff a fair wage. A range of clothing in sizes that fit everyone, without gender-specific colours, and with advertising that seeks to support and understand, instead of shaming and patronising.
And with all of the profit going to parkrun. Perfect for a parkrun themed Christmas present!
