Last year the shirts were blue and yellow or purple and yellow. the blue ones actually had purple on the sides under the arms which made for a terrible look. They are old and outdated. I agree and i love the long sleeve tech shirts, but these aren't really even tech shirts anymore. they're HEAVY and make for a nice shirt/jacket to wear around and show off your accomplishment. That's it. And if you live somewhere warm, they're relegated to a closet shelf somewhere.
Maybe if you had the option at registration of selecting a finishers T-Shirt or Jacket. Then there's no waste, they know exactly how many of each they need to order and the T's will cut costs a bit.
I didn't see anyone complaining, just providing feedback on an issue that was important to the OP.
In response to:
I completely disagree. I hate busy shirts, and I love that Pikes shirts are becoming iconic.
I know people in the other discussion thread were discussing having regular t-shirts over these long sleeve techs, but I think that would be sad. Quality long-sleeve technical shirts are hard to find, and as a mountain runner, I go through my entire stack of Pikes shirts - summer or winter.
Okay, I'll stop interrupting your complaining.
