We all love the parkrun club t-shirts. But those among us who have reached the coveted milestones of 10 (under 18s only), 50 and 100 runs (the soon-to-be first 250 club member in the US is still working on it), or 25 volunteering occasions, have needed an extra dose of patience, as many sizes of the free t-shirts have been out of stock.
The latest batch of milestone t-shirts is nearly with us. We know some of you have been waiting a while to receive yours, so we wanted to let you know how the process will work.
Around 23,000 new milestone t-shirts arrived in the UK last month. They need to clear customs and be sent to Wiggle, parkrun’s online retail partner, where they will be checked and loaded onto their stock system. We expect the t-shirts will be available from mid-July.
All claim links will first be reset, then those parkrunners who have been waiting the longest will have their links activated. Links will then be activated in incremental batches.
Milestone t-shirts are claimed via the ‘club progress’ link on your ‘profile’ section when you log in at parkrun.com. You can also access this page using the ‘My Profile’ link in the email newsletters.
Thanks for your patience. We can’t wait to see another 23,000 well-deserved white, red, black, green, blue and aubergine milestone t-shirts parkrunning across the world very soon!

Over the past months, for…
