MyRaceRagz' slogan is "creating memorable running moments one shirt at a time" and that's exactly what they do! Through this company you can easily design a custom shirt for your next race or training run.
I have often seen people on Twitter looking for a company that will make a custom shirt for a run. And as runners, we are not just looking for a cotton t-shirt - we want a comfy shirt made from technical fabric that will go the distance, from 5k to a marathon, and wick moisture while also being comfortable. MyRaceRagz is the answer if you are looking for a shirt like that!
I had never ordered from MyRaceRagz before this. They generously provided me with a coupon code so I could check out their product. Knowing the cold weather is coming, I selected a long sleeve technical shirt. I am not very talented when it comes to graphic design or clever sayings, so I was concerned about what to put on the shirt. I was happy to find out that MyRaceRagz offers a lot of pre-designed options as well, and even happier to find out that you can customize the colours on the designs.
I went with a simple 13.1 design (I will post a picture when I get home- I'm in the airport right now) which was originally pink. I customized it to be purple to match Team in Training colours. It was easy to select my design, place it, and select the colours. I also played around with the text options, which were also easy to work with. I could put 13.1 on the front and another design or some text on the back. In the end, I went with the front design only, but more because of my own lack of creativity than a lack of options or a problem with the website interface.
My shirt arrived quickly considering it was being shipped to Canada. I put it on right away and was pleased with the quality of the fabric and the cut of the shirt. It fit very well. At first I felt the sleeves were a little short, but realized when I headed out to run that they were the perfect length - since they didn't go down to far, my wrists weren't super bulky with fabric and putting my Garmin on was easy compared to my other fall/winter running top options. I headed out for a run and the shirt was comfortable and kept me warm.
Using the MyRaceRagz website was very easy and I was pleased with the product. I would definitely recommend them if you need a custom shirt for a race or other athletic event, and will be keeping them in mind myself for future races.
