PPA and PPM Finisher Wear
« on: March 08, 2015, 05:25:10 PM »
It sounds like PPA and PPM finishers are in for YATS (yet another technical shirt) this year based on this post.  Can you confirm there will be no 60th anniversary jackets like those great 50th anniversary jackets?  Also, is it fair to assume that the PPA shirt will include a lot of purple?  I will gladly donate my time to help review the shirt/jacket/sweat pants designs this year!  :)

My one-word suggestion for finisher shirts - cotton!

Its time for another jacket.  I wear them more than anything else.  If it is a shirt them I agree with a quality cotton.  I have a stack of tech shirts I have never worn.  What ever it is I like the real Pikes Peak Altitude across the back at the top.

Sigh, they'll never please everyone. I'd wear a tech shirt long before a cotton one. That being said - last year's were really bad  ;)

My vote is for jackets, with no purple in sight...

I like the pull over/ zip ups we've had in the past.  I didn't mind last years shirt, its too big, but eh whatever I wear it with pride.  The jackets are nice too, but goodness no cotton shirts please! I never wear the cotton shirts we get from races.  Also, I'd really love if they would sell xs  gear at the expo, I am tired of not being able to buy anything cause its too big.

Please do not use purple, I know it is impossible to make everyone happy.  But I beg, no more purple.

Personally, I like tech shirts (though last year's design did leave something to be desired).  Cotton...not so much.  Please don't do cotton!  Personal preference.

I can't speak to the jackets.  Sorry.

Jackets seem proper for sure- many other colors would be fitting

I ran the marathon in 2012.  I would take a repeat of those. It was a 1/2 zip pull over.

Late to the party. I'm just happy to be running in this classic. I'm color blind but my wife loves purple. I vote for a jacket. I need it 9 months out of the year in Ohio. I don't need a shirt but I'll appreciate any shirt I get. Hopefully it isn't a hospital gown...
