Most UK events offer unisex size t-shirts to both their male and female finishers.Theoretically, this is great - but only if the right questions are asked on your entry system! For example, a female runner who is a ‘womens medium’ size would naturally choose ‘medium’ on the entry system. Instead, a medium female size would correspond to a small unisex size.
Getting your entry system to give you a more accurate picture will make organising event t-shirts easier! Instead of asking “t-shirt size” on entry forms, you can ask “UNISEX finisher t-shirt size”. Or, rather than asking XS, S, M, L, XL you can add in the chest sizes across both your male and female competitors to make your results more precise.
For example, you can ask the following:
“Please choose your size for your free unisex finisher t-shirt”
XS – 34” chest
Small - 36” chest
Medium - 38” chest
Large - 40/42” chest
XL – 44/46” chest
Your entry system provider should easily be able to update these questions for you.
