Last chance to order your WRC racing apparel!

Order by Friday June 22

WRC is creating singlets so we can look just as impressive as our race results. Both the men’s and women’s singlets are sleek, lightweight, and bright yellow. The artwork, printed with dark blue ink, will be similar to that used for previous versions of WRC apparel. Take a look at the designs for the front and back.

WRC is subsidizing the singlets, so each one will cost you just $15. Once we have everyone’s requests, we’ll place an order with our distributor and screen printer. So don’t miss out!

To order your singlet(s), please fill out this simple online form. Please note that the original email said the men’s singlets would be Brooks brand; we’re now using Nike as you can see in the above link.

Respond to this email with any questions! This is your last chance to pre-order, so please fill out the online form by Friday June 22. Thanks!
