That's impressive. I've written several times, and never received a response. I was beginning to think that the emails to runDisney went through the same screening process as the Moms Panel.

I, too, just prefer options. While I am female, most female cut shirts will not fit me (until I lose the weight I'm trying to lose).

Several years ago I did the SF Nike Women's Half. They only had women's cut shirts. I ordered the 2XL and could barely get it on. Needless to say it just sits in a drawer.

I was also disappointed in the shirt fit and wished they'd had a female cut available. The local half I ran in had both options so it seems crazy to me that Disney couldn't do the same. I love the shirt (color and design), but the fit makes it one that I will only wear on occasion. I bought my own tech shirt at the Expo though which was a female cut and I LOVE it.

I'll send them an email as well. We are planning on Goofy in 2015 and it would be awesome if they had a female cut option as well as the unisex version.

Yep same here. When the local half that I pay $40 for can give out amazing medals and gender specific shirts (nice ones!!) I wonder why Disney can't or won't. Oh well!

I have so unisex shirts that are fine, but the Disney ones are TERRIBLE.
They gave DH a women's cut by mistake at the 2012 Princess and he looked pretty darn hot in it. LOL. He's happy he was able to change to a men's cut.

In all of my races, I love my Rock n Roll shirt best. It's the only race shirt I have that doesn't have pulled threads and still looks great. My gripe is the quality of the shirts Disney gives out.

I would still prefer a "unisex" or "men's" cut shirt.

Women's cut shirts tend to fit me too tight under the arms and I pit out really easy.

So definitely give us a choice!

Okay, here's what I sent to them on Sunday:

Quote:
Hi! I recently participated in Marathon Weekend (Goofy) after running
the marathon in 2012 and the Princess Half in 2011. This year there was
a lot of talk about how many women participated in the races - in fact
I think there were more women than men? So I am wondering why, when
registering for the race, a women's-cut technical shirt is not an
option. I believe I have heard that men running the Princess and
Tinkerbell half marathons can get unisex shirts...why not extend the
gender-specific option to women that run your other races as well? I
really love all of my Disney marathon weekend shirts, but truly don't
wear them as much as some of my other shirts just because they are so
unflattering! The Princess one gets worn a lot because I feel like I
actually look good in it.

Thank you!
Here is what they just wrote back to me:

Quote:
Hi Sannon,

Thanks for your feedback. I have passed this along to the entire
runDisney team.

Thanks,
runDisney
Ouch, typo'd my name!

As I said, I have written several times, but all the responses have read thus:

I got this reply from them:

Hi Gisele,

Glad you hear you enjoyed your run. Thank you for your feedback
regarding the shirts. I will be sure to pass this along to the entire
runDinsey team, and also the Cast Member who oversees shirt orders.

Here's hoping if enough people complain they will make some changes.

Race Shirt Quilt

Well, if they don't ever change the shirts maybe I'll steal an idea I saw on Facebook and make a quilt out of all of my ugly shirts.

Just finished the quilt (ok just the top for now) from old race t-shirts. I'll worry about quilting it when I get back- right now i'm thinking of making the back out of the tech shirts I don't wear- or maybe the shorter race t-shirts I have, haven't decided yet.

Awesome! Maybe you can post a pic sometime?

This is somewhat off topic, but I am a little surprised that they are still using Champion T shirts. Given the amount of press the new partnership with New Balance received at the time of the marathon, and the fact that New Balance made custom (and, ahem, gender-specific) runDisney shoes, I sort of expected the shirts to be New Balance as well.

And yes, I know Champion still has the deal with Wide World of Sports, but the New Balance deal is specifically with runDisney.

Maybe in the future they will make the change; I know my wife really likes her New Balance tech shirts, so if they do, that might solve the dilemma.
