Shirts & Amenities

These shirts are a more expensive than the polyester technical shirts seen at most events but once you feel the texture and wear the material you will relish this shirt! For more details about our shirts, visit Greenswell Green.
Participants will receive only (1) shirt for the entire series. This will enable Greenswell to keep the cost down for the series and increase the donation opportunity to the Stewards of The Metro Parks and to the Greenswell Participant Foundation.
