Finisher Shirt Friday – Join us on Friday, April 25th

Gov. Mark Dayton declares April 25th “Finisher Shirt Friday." Join us in celebrating!


We don’t know about you, but we love our finisher shirts. (And we all have a favorite, whether it's from a marathon, 5K, 10 mile, or triathlon!)






They’re a wearable reminder of everything it took to get to the finish line. The miles logged on good training days and the not-so-great. The family, friends and spectators who supported us through the training season and on race day.  


We don the shirts with pride for the accomplishments we’ve achieved and with dreams of meeting our next goal. We bump into others wearing them and smile at the common bond we share.


We’re not ashamed to admit that we’ll find any good excuse to wear our finisher shirts – either for a training run or out and about town.

That’s why we’re thrilled that Governor Mark Dayton has declared Friday, April 25th Finisher Shirt Friday in the State of Minnesota and urges all runners to wear their favorite finisher shirt that day. You can read the whole proclamation here.  


We hope you’ll join the community and wear yours that day too - whether it’s at the office, during a lunchtime run or evening running errands at the end of the day.


And, while you’re at it, join us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where we’ll be sharing pictures of everybody taking part in #FinisherShirtFriday fun. We’ll be giving out some awesome swag to a few lucky runners who post a picture in their favorite shirt and use the hashtag.
