Product Review: My Race Ragz

For the Boston Marathon this year I really wanted a personalized shirt with my name on it but didn’t know of anywhere that would make one on a decent shirt.  A shirt’s fit and fabric are of very high importance in a marathon, so I ended up buying some letters and ironing them onto a Nike tank the night before the race.

It turned out great and I was happy with it, but wished I would have been able to do something different so I didn’t ruin my tank top!  I still wear it under other shirts and the letters are starting to come off after a few washes, but have left behind residue where they were ironed on.  Boo.

A month or so after Boston I was contacted by My Race Ragz, a company that specializes in customized tech shirts.  I was actually kind of bummed that I hadn’t been aware of these before Boston because I would have definitely considered it!  They asked me to be a part of their affiliate program (see advertising box in my sidebar), but I wanted to make sure that I actually liked the product when putting it on my page, so they sent me one to review also.

They have a ton of designs to choose from (or you can make/upload your own!) as well as a bunch of different styles.  They have everything from short sleeve to a couple of tank top styles as well as long sleeves to choose from!  A customized shirt ranges anywhere from $29 to $36 depending on the style, which is a pretty reasonable price in my opinion for a custom shirt.  You can also get customized shirts made and not have to buy in bulk – you can just design your one shirt for you and that’s it!

I picked the Women’s Endurance Race Tee style and had the Yellow 26.2 symbol added on to the front.

The first thing I noticed about this shirt was the length – it’s long!  I am VERY picky when it comes to shirts lengths and this one is perfect.

The second thing I noticed was the fabric – it’s soft!  Sometimes tech shirts can just be a little weird, but this one was great, very soft and also wicking. 

The last thing I noticed was the style.  Sometimes when you buy tech shirts like this, the women’s ones just don’t fit right.  They are too big or not personalized and just look blah.  That is not the case with this one!  The style of shirt in particular is fitted in the right spots and the sleeves are great.  It is very true to size, so make sure to take that into consideration if you order one.

I took the shirt out for a 9 mile test run (literally) on a warm afternoon and it definitely passed the test!  It was very comfortable and wicking – Aron approved!


The next time I go to a race and want my name or something personalized on the front of my shirt, I am definitely going to go this route.  The shirt is very comfortable, fits great, and is great quality!  I would highly recommend My Race Ragz if you want a customized shirt for a race.

    That is an awesome idea. For my marathon I just wrote my name on a piece of tape and fixed it on to the front of my shirt. Not exactly classy. When my father and I ran a half together I used fabric paint to write “Run Dad Run” on the back of a tank, but I haven’t worn it since. I’ll definitely keep this in mind next time I want to personalize a race shirt!

    I’ve always wondered about shirts like that- I too am VERY picky about shirts. I don’t like the really thick ones and I find that most of them are too short! (and I don’t have a long torso)
    I might have to check if they ship to Canada :)

    The shirst are long?? Awesome – I’ll have to check them out! I have a hard time with a lot of running shirts and tech tees because are too short. I’m definitely pimping out a shirt for my first marathon!

    OMG!!! What a selection they have! I’ve just spent the last 20 minutes looking at all the designs! I’m going to get a handful of these for me and my hubby! Too fun!

    I ordered a shirt from there a couple months ago. Mine says “USMC 26.2″ on the front and “Training to beat Oprah 4:29:19″ on the back :)

    Good to know, I definitely want to buy a technical shirt with my name on it to wear to races! My main concern is that the technical tshirt feels good. Does the feel of the shirt mirror the quality that you get at most races? Also, is the sizing consistent too?

    And this is really dorky, though I’m assuming that you saw this – California’s new budget includes a provision taxing internet sales. So Amazon and overstock cut out all their California affiliates. This might affect bloggers, since I’m assuming that a lot of bloggers have ads from Amazon on their site.

    Thanks for the review! I was looking for something like this. I recently got “Team Run The Long Road” shirts made and was not happy with the color, fit, and limited selection. I will definitely give Race Ragz a try!

    I’ve been meaning to order a shirt from race ragz, glad to hear they fit well and are long! I’m on the search for a funny, creative, inspirational saying for my shirt though. Does anyone have a favorite running quote or slogan?

    Hey Aron!

    I’m about to order a Race Ragz shirt, and was wondering what size you ordered. I hate for running shirts to be too tight and kind of like them loose.

    Do you feel like they run true to size? And which size did you order?

    Thanks so much!
