2023 Official Event Technical T-shirt
Rapid Ascent greatly values the natural environment where we all run, walk and live. As part of our continued commitment to environmental preservation and sustainability we will be reducing the amount of event merchandise we provide at our events.
As per last year we are continuing to reduce our consumption of resources and waste going to landfill, and once again we will not be giving entrants an event shirt as part of your entry fee (introduced in 2022). In lieu of shirts, another cash donation will be made to The Friends of the Eastern Otways, a local environmental charity so they can help the flora and fauna impacted by all our lifestyles.
Event shirts can still be purchased for $30 (plus other event merchandise) before the July 31st allowing us to order the exact number needed, further minimizing wastage.
