Update on changes to milestone t-shirts

Earlier this year we announced some changes to the milestone t-shirts that recognise and reward individual participation at parkrun.

 

As we prepare to implement the new process, here’s the latest information.

 

Back in March 2021 we let you know about changes we are making to milestone t-shirts.

 

We had initially hoped that we could go live with the new milestone t-shirts from 1 September. However, just like everyone else, we have faced challenges with factory closures due to COVID-19, and longer shipping times, resulting in a delay receiving the stock into our warehouse.

 

We’re hoping the delay will only be a few weeks, and once we have more information to share, we’ll provide an update on the usual channels.
