Lay Claim to your Speed! The deadline to order a shirt has passed.

We’re offering a fun way for you to show off what pace you “represent.” Maybe it’s not your actual pace on the track, but it’s how you feel when running! Either way, you can choose to purchase one of these fun, super soft tees to commemorate your Need for Speed 5k. You’ll be able to select a “SLOW,” “AVERAGE,” or “FAST” shirt during Need for Speed 5k registration if you choose. Have fun with it! We do recommend sizing up a size for this particular brand.
