Represent the CRC, support local elite runners, and run in one of the most innovative kits we've ever seen. The CRC is debuting the 2018 CRC Elite uniforms to all shops and online May 31.
This year, it's more than just a new jersey for some of the fastest runners in Ohio. Using a new, ultra-light fabric previously unreleased in the USA, CRC has created custom tops that perform great, feel fast, and look bold.
This kit is what our elite team will be wearing, and it will be available in-store for the general public should you want to support and represent as well.
Men's singlets ($42.20) and women's racerback ($42.20). Featuring the new Breezee fabric, we cut these in racerback form for the women and a traditional singlet style for the men. Our triple-shaded red triangle design represents speed, desire, and internal fire. The colors fade up into a pure black with the CRC logo casting itself out as you lead the way on your run. All the colors are vividly sublimated into the fabric, so no screen printing altering the weight or feel. The back features our traditional 'CRC,' along with the 'ELITE' tag in small lettering as a shout-out to the team.
So what is the Breezee fabric? It's one of the lightest and most airy fabrics we could find. We wanted it to feel like you were running with nothing but a cool, easy breeze draped around you. Originally sourced from Thailand, it is manufactured for us by an innovative and worker-responsible garment factory based in Cambodia.
Unisex arm warmers ($29). Our arm warmers are designed with a slightly more substantial fabric called Movement. Movement offers a light stretch, which allows the fabric to contour more to the body. We've included thumb holes for some extra coverage, as well as a thin silicon lining on the top to keep them in place. The design was made specifically to match the tops for a sharp, unified look.
Women's crop top ($35). By popular demand, we added this to the line in 2018. Also using Movement fabric, the light stretch will keep its form in place. There is not a built-in bra, simply because we know on race day that's a choice best left to the individual. We specifically cut away fabric in the back for a racerback, open-style look. The crop top will not debut until mid-June, so we haven't pictured them here.
The kits will be available in all CRC shops and online. We anticipate these going fast—both out the door and on the run! And Thursday 5/31 through Sunday 6/3, you can use promo code CRCRulez when purchasing online to get the singlet and arm warmer combo for the reduced price of $66.00 (pre-tax).
This is a first for CRC—debuting new fabrics, art work, and fabric cuts. Thanks for supporting CRC, CRC Elite, and running in central Ohio!
