2011 Race Logo
This year the race logo is Cari Buziak's interpretation of pair of intertwined snowbirds, a wonderfully mystical creature of a bygone era. The design will be screened on the backs of the race shirts in matching pattern colors to the shirt fabric at the Brooks factory.
Sizing Issues - Men's and Women's Sizes
If are are female and order a female medium, you will be issued a female medium, not a male medium. If you are female and order a male medium instead of a female large, you will receive a male medium. Shirts run true to size and will be on hand to try on before the event.
This year's Premium shirt - Equilibrium Thermal
This year's premium is the Brooks Equilibrium Thermal long-sleevel....technical enough for the run, comfortable enough as an everyday base-layer. Silky, super-soft brushed fabric is both lightweight and stretchable with cozy thumbholes. The men's is a dark red with grey contrasts, women's are light blue. MSRP is $55....."
Really fun race. This will be my 4th year in a row to run it (even did the "through the ice and snow" year). Great schwag, fun course, and great post race food (hot mulled wine, hot stew and more).
