Tracksmith today has launched two new limited-edition pieces to celebrate the fall Marathon season. The NYC and BQ Singlets pay tribute to the iconic races in New York City and Boston.
Sporting two special edition designs, the singlets are rooted in performance, made from luxurious lightweight 2:09 mesh, and also come with four safety pins for the runner’s bib on race day.
The BQ (“Boston Qualifier”) singlet pays special homage to the Boston marathon and will be available exclusively for those who achieved the qualifying time for the 2015 race.
Editor’s note: One of the co-founders of Tracksmith is Matt Taylor, the man behind running video sites Chasingtradition.com and chasingkimbia.com and a former college teammate of LetsRun.com co-founder Weldon Johnson.
