RTTT BottleSERIES SWAG!

We know it’s hard work to finish a marathon. So we’ll treat our series runners to exclusive Race to the Taps Marathon Edition Swag!

We are letting you choose whether or not you want more race t-shirts. If your dresser is over flowing with race shirts choose the no shirt option and save a few $$. If you miss the t-shirt deadline, no worries, you can buy a t-shirt on-site.

All of our Marathon Runners that register for the FULL FOUR RACE SERIES before April 1st will receive (runners who sign up for all 4 races prior to the 1st race will still be eligible for series swag but may receive it after the 1st race based on available quantities on April 23rd):

  • A Race to the Taps Marathon Edition bib for each event.
  • A Race to the Taps branded water bottle.
  • A commemorative sticker from each race to decorate your bottle.
  • A finishers metal at the completion of the New Belgium race.
