Race of Hope signature yellow gear is truly special because it has been crafted with you in mind. Our hope is that you'll enjoy your gear for years to come and be reminded of your important contribution to depression research. Do not delay and sign up today as available spaces are limited. Gear and sizes are available in limited quantities and offered first come first served based upon arrival at packet pick up events. If your requested sizes are no longer available, we'll offer the next closest available option. Gear style may change based upon availability. After all gear race packets are claimed at packet pick up, no product will be provided. Participants who do not receive 2024 gear will still have the opportunity to snag vintage gear, race with a bib, and earn the 2024 Finisher medal.
