2021 Race Shirt Reveal

Race weekend is just around the corner and we are incredibly excited to see you at the start line the third weekend of September! To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Air Force Marathon, we have designed the 2021 race shirts with the United States Air Force Memorial at the center and the four featured aircraft flying above. The shirt sleeves portray the American flag and 'perseverance' and 'pride' from the marathon's mission statement. We are very proud to be a leader in the race industry again with each race shirt being a poly-blend made from 60% recycled polyester material.
