For my 10K I bought a shirt that said "if found on ground, please drag across finish line" because it made me laught my heiny off.

This site has all sorts of great shirts!

I got the shirt from them and it's great quality.

Oh my goodness. These are all so good. I am going to pay closer attention from now on. I did see a couple girls who had on their backs a shirt that read "I run for fun" and they crossed out the word fun and added "food". I can relate to that.

Of course the really best one is the one you earn by doing the race. I still have my first half marathon shirt and I only wear it 2-3 times a year. Alot of sweat went into earning that race shirt. It was 2005 the summer of the heat wave and the race was in October. The hottest summer to run it, but we did it. emoticon

I'll be 50 this November, and that shirt would apply to me; however that finish line is CLOSER than it was 3 years ago!

My favorite is the 10 miler in Hell MI. On the front it reads 'Run through hell" - on the back - I ran through hell.

Now that most races have upgraded to technical T's, I've been pretty happy with the shirts they give out. I plan on saving all of my race shirts and making a quilt out of them someday! So whether they fit or not, they still make great keepsakes. (I only have three race shirts so far...so I have a long way to go before I have enough to make my quilt...)

These are great! I can't remember any good ones... but on the topic, what's up with the race t-shirts they give out?? I'd prefer to pay $5 less for the entry fee and skip the shirt that is too tight around the neck and enormous everywhere else!

"This seemed like a good idea 3 months ago." Actually I saw this one online, but have not been able to find it again.

In a 4 miler I saw a youngster wearing, "Run like you stole something."

In my last race, I saw a guy wearing a plain white t-shirt and he had written "I was told there'd be beer" in sharpie across the back. What are some of the best race t-shirts that you've seen out there on the course?
