    Sorry if this is not appropriate for this board - I figured the people here would know more than on the reg parks board.

    Is there a place in the parks or downtown disney that I can buy RunDisney shirts? Specifically the In Training ones that are on the DisneyStore.com website?

    Thanks!

    This is a great question! I will keep my eyes open for them next week. I haven't ever noticed them outside of the Expos, but I wasn't really looking previously.

    You can definitely purchase them online at the Disney store. I just asked runDisney via Twitter if they would have Dumbo Challenge training shirts or Dopey training shirts. It would be great if they offered them for specific races!

    I would like one and I am going to be in the parks and at the EEC package pick-up where I understand there may be some merch cuz I don't wanna pay for shipping from disneystore.com :-)

    That would be cool - EEC is my fist RunDisney event - do they do event specific In Training shirts? Like for Goofy or Donald?

    In the past I have seen stuff at Team Mickey in Downtown Disney...but that was during a race weekend so I am not sure if it's always there. I would also guess they'd have stuff at the ESPN Wide World of Sports store. :)

    2 years ago I got an "I did it" at a store outside packet pick up for the Everest Race.
    If you are facing the building from the parking lot, I believe it was on the left. They mostly had golf and baseball stuff but they did have some EEC specific shirts. I got one for me and one for DS16. And mine was a women's shirt and DS's was a men's shirt. Which was nice because the race tech shirts were all men's cut.

    I've never seen them outside of the expo either aside from purchasing them online.

    The store at ESPNWWoS had a good selection of runDisney gear when I was there in 2012. Maybe you could call them to see what they have in stock?

    The best bet is ordering online, although the selection still seems limited. Even at the expos I don't remember seeing any "Run Disney" merchandise. All of it is pretty specific to whatever race is going on.

    Sometime the Team Mickey store in DTD has Run Disney Merchandise. Not lots of clothing, but other merchandise ( I got a license plate for my car there). The last time I was there for the Disney Princess Weekend, I had asked the sales associate why they didn't have any Run Disney Princess Half Marathon merchandise there. Her response was "They would be getting the Princess Half merchandise in next week". This really baffled me because the Race weekend was now! In fact, the race had just happend that morning. Anyone who ran the Princess and wanted merchandise would probably not be sticking around till next week. I feel like that was poor marketing strategy on their part. So, if anyone visited DTD the week AFTER the Princes Half, I am curious to know if they ever did get the Princess Half Merchandise in stock?

    ( Sorry such a long rant)

    I have a question on the runDisney tech shirts. I noticed the online Disney Store has a few new "In Training" tech shirts and I wanted to buy one.

    This is the men's cut: http://www.disneystore.com/tees-top...-tee-for-adults-rundisney/mp/1332621/1000228/

    My question is: do the shirts run to size or do I need to order a larger shirt than the one I currently wear? I currently wear Large, but some of my tech shirts by Nike are XL because they're more comfortable.

    If you look at the reviews of the items on the Disney Store site, one of the categories is if it runs true to size. I don't know about the men's shirts, but most women find that the shirts run small. I know they did for me, my sis and my DD.

    I ordered 4 Run Disney Tech shirts last year for my family and had to send them all back. This was pretty much my fault though because I should have figured they were all mens sizes. I thought I could get away with a small ( I wear a womens small anyway) and I was practically swimming in it. The others were medium and they were pretty big too for those family members who normally were a medium.

    Hope that helps.
