Any experiences helpful
Search for your local screen printers and give them a call? Some of them will do tech t-shirts, and if they don't they could probably recommend someone who does.
Decathalon do it.
Do you need the teeshirt ? I doubt anyone will see it and donate to that charity over the 100s that are there. When I've run for charity in the past I just wear a tee that I'm comfortable with. If the charity want publicity they'd surely organise teeshirts ? You may be better off saving your money and donating that to them ?
SJ, as you run by - in amongst all the thousands of other runners - no-one will be reading what's on your t-shirt. They won't be able to see it, even, amongst all the other people. Have you seen how crowded the course gets?
I am a cynical old bag, but I'd also bet that no-one will ask you about your charity, either (when? at the start? at the finish? as you whizz along?).
Give the cash to the charity
I was going to suggest that the t-shirt might look nice in the photos, but the photos will cost more than the t-shirt!
Do it topless with the name of the charity written on your chest in tar!
I'm really not stirring - its just that every other person has a charity top on - so i can't see that anyone will ask/donate. If you're aiming for visibility to runners - put the details on the back. You get to stare at backs for hooooours and hoooours when running.
Whats that charity with the bat logo - i keep meaning to look that up (10 VLMs later I've still not remembered the name !?)
Cut up the cotton t shirt and sew the bit you want seen onto a technical t shirt that you know fits well and doesnot rub.
Hmm okay, devil's advocate a) Wear the t-shirt on your training runs, any other race and even down t'pub as people will talk to you about what you are doing so could helpo with the fundraising. Important thing to get on your shirt for the day is YOUR NAME. Lifts morale, even when people who don't know you call out your name, in my experience anyway...hope that helps
