Brand: We wanted to get a name brand top that was a good quality and would last. We wanted to look sharp at races (well, as sharp as we can). When looking at the name brand tops, the retail price ranges from $25 - $45 a piece. We were able to work out some at a discount however for a Saucony Hydralite top for the club.
Discount: Thanks to Jim and Raleigh Running Outfitters, we are getting a sizeable discount. The singlets retail for $25 (+$4 for customization), but Jim is getting them for us below his cost. He is doing this for one because we have loyally supported his store for our running needs, and he hopes this relationship continues. Secondly, we will proudly display a small RMEC logo on the chest, and a small RRO logo on the back below the neck. It will not look like a typical race shirt with lots of logos. So BIG THANKS to Jim for supporting the RMEC.
Style: The focus of this order is on singlets, but I realize not everyone likes a singlet. I was careful to pick a brand that had matching shirts in different styles. This means you can get a singlet, tank top, or short sleeve.

- Saucony Women's Hydralite Short - $12
Color: We are going for a team look, so we are only ordering one color. Based on votes here and on Facebook we will pick the most popular choice. Click here to see all three options: BLUE IS THE WINNING COLOR.
Members: We can provide the pricing above for those who have paid their 2012 membership dues. You can see the sign up list here (scroll down). If you did not sign up to become a member, you can sign up now at this link. Please sign up ASAP.
Sizing: This is up to you. You get what you request. If you click the links above, you can see a sizing chart. Women can order the men's short sleeve if they prefer, but I would not suggest a men's singlet or sleeveless as the arm holes are generally larger.
Ordering a shirt: This part is important. I need you to carefully complete the following information, and comment on this blog post. You need to comment with your name, style, and size. BE SURE TO IDENTIFY THE GENDER IN THE STYLE. Please do a new comment for each order.

Deadline: I am turning in the order on Monday to Jim. I will add a few extra tops, but I need to know what you want ASAP.
Matching Items: One advantage of getting a name brand, is you can get matching items. We are NOT doing a club order for anything except the tops above, but if you were looking for shorts, hoodies, jackets, etc. check out the Saucony website. Of course we highly recommend buy all of your other gear at Raleigh Running Outfitters.
