Ever since January 2007 milestone t-shirts have been awarded to recognise individual participation at parkrun.
Celebrating persistence and consistency, milestone t-shirts have become immensely popular, and are an important motivating force, encouraging parkrunners to return time and again to walk, jog, run and volunteer.
The white, purple, red, black, green and blue milestone t-shirts have come to symbolise and represent sustained effort and inspirational commitment.
For participation at a 5k parkrun on a Saturday morning we offer milestone clubs (and t-shirts) whether you walk, jog, run or volunteer:
- junior 10 and v10 (under 18s)
- 25 and v25
- 50 and v50
- 100 and v100
- 250 and v250
- 500 and v500
Milestone t-shirts can now be ordered by every eligible parkrunner at the price of £15 for youth sizes and £18 for adults.
The price of each t-shirt covers the cost of manufacture and warehousing, and includes shipping anywhere in the world.
Due to the huge number of parkrunners who are now eligible for milestone t-shirts some sizes may become unavailable quickly. We are closely monitoring the situation and will order new stock as soon as possible so please be patient if your size preference is unavailable.
Only the 5km parkrun series on Saturday morning count towards your milestone t-shirt club. junior parkrun, (not)parkrun and Freedom runs do not.
For the junior series colourful wristbands and certificates to participants who reach the following junior parkrun club milestones by running, walking or jogging:
- Half marathon club (11 walk/jog/run): blue wristband and certificate
- Marathon club (21 walk/jog/run): green wristband and certificate
- Ultra marathon club (50 walk/jog/run): orange wristband and certificate
- 100 junior parkruns: certificate only
Wristbands can be collected directly from the junior parkrun team and certificates downloaded via the milestones tab in the child's parkrun profile.
Only those aged between the ages of 4 and 14 running at junior parkrun are eligible… so any over 14s will have to look on with envy.
If you volunteer at junior parkrun on a Sunday this will count towards the volunteer milestone clubs.
