Personalised Running Tops – London Marathon

Personalised Running Tops - London Marathon

The London Marathon is quickly approaching (22nd April 2018) and everyone is still training hard.

The London Marathon has on average 40,000 runners in the event, over 7,000 marshals and around 800,000 spectating the event (not including those watching at home). It’s fair to say it’s a pretty large event which is why some runners like to personalise their running gear to make them stand out.

If you’re running the London Marathon this year it’s a good opportunity to get your name out there, whether you’re running for a charity, your local running club or even just for fun we can provide you with your very own personalised running top.

At Acorn Printing we provide a variety of different brands that are fantastic for running which include Gamegear and Spiro. Gamegear and Spiro have an excellent reputation when it comes to athletic-wear as they use intelligent fabrics which adapt well to the body during exercise. The material is lightweight, breathable and very comfortable on the skin.

We provide a wide variety of options when it comes to personalising your running tops. Depending on what top you choose you can have the option of printing or embroider the garment with your desired logo, text or image in multiple locations.

If you have any difficulty in the design process we have a team of friendly staff who will be able to help you out with the creative aspect or if you have a question they will be happy to help in any way.

Why not stand out from the crowd this year at the London Marathon?

It was a pleasure to help The Lily Mae Foundation with their Balsall Common Fun Run this month. We printed the fun run t shirts that were given out to the runners as pictured above.

The Fun Run was a great success with over 600 runners and walkers taking part. So much so that runners are being asked to pencil in Sunday 23 September 2018 for next year’s Fun Run. The event raises money for The Lily Mae Foundation charity which offers support for parents who suffer a Stillbirth or Neonatal Death.

Acorn Printing started life in Balsall Common over 30 years ago and we like to keep strong connections with the community.

We also opened a web shop on our sister site T Shirt UK to sell t shirts for the Fun Run to allow anyone who wanted a t shirt to order online. If you didn’t get one on the day you can still oder your Fun Run t shirt from us online or just email or call 024 7669 4466.
