Claiming your milestone shirt

milestone shirts

After your milestone is complete and when the shirts are in stock, you will receive an email invitation to order your free milestone shirt.

Read the latest update on milestone shirts.

The shirts are free but you need to pay postage.

When you start your order, it might look like there is a cost involved, but it will be discounted in the final step before you confirm your order.

The link (in your parkrun profile) to order your shirt expires after approx. 8 weeks, so keep an eye out for your email and order your shirt ASAP.

If your link has expired or you have other queries regarding milestone shirts, contact the parkrun help desk.

 

Recognising your milestones – 10 (junior), 50, 100, 250 and 500 parkruns and 25 volunteers

milestone present

At New Farm parkrun, we love acknowledging your milestone achievements in our pre-run brief at 6.50am each week.

For junior parkrunners, we present your 10-club milestone certificate the week after your 10th run is completed.

For 25 volunteer milestones, we acknowledge you in the pre-run brief the week you are volunteering for the 25th time.

When you are approaching a 50, 100, 250 or 500 milestone, we keep track of your tally, so if you walked, jogged or ran at New Farm within your last five parkruns, you should receive an email* from us asking you to confirm whether you will be running your milestone at New Farm the following Saturday.

If you plan to run, jog or walk your milestone at New Farm in a future week, please respond to the email and let us know well ahead so we can be prepared when you run it.

If you haven’t participated at New Farm recently (within your last five parkruns) or if you haven’t received an email the week before your milestone, please email us and let us know.

Note: if you participate at other parkrun events in the lead up to your milestone, we (at New Farm) may not be aware of your milestone coming up, so please email us.

To make your milestone extra special, you could:

  • Invite your parkrun friends to join you in a dress up theme that’s special for you (e.g. your favourite colour)
  • Invite your friends to breakfast/coffee afterwards.

After your milestone run and when the shirts are in stock, you will receive an email invitation to order your free milestone shirt.

Read the latest update on milestone shirts.

NB:

  • We can only email you about your milestone if your profile indicates you wish to receive emails from parkrun. Read more.
  • We only acknowledge official parkrun milestones of 10 (juniors only), 50, 100, 250 and 500 parkruns and 25 volunteers. Read more.
