Tracksmith is launching two new limited-edition pieces this month to celebrate the fall Marathon season. The NYC and BQ Singlets pay tribute to the iconic races in New York City and Boston (which happen to be one of the largest and oldest annual running marathons in the world, respectively).
Sporting two special edition designs, the singlets are rooted in performance, made from luxurious lightweight 2:09 mesh, and also come with four gold safety pins for the runner’s bib on race day.
The BQ (“Boston Qualifier”) singlet pays special homage to the Boston marathon and will be available exclusively for those who achieved the qualifying time for this year’s race .
BACKGROUND DETAILS: Tracksmith “BQ 15” Singlet:
- The BQ stands for “Boston Qualifier.”
- A “BQ” is a marathon finish time fast enough to qualify for entrance into the Boston Marathon. (List of the qualifying standards by gender/age group can be found here).
- With the exclusion of the Olympics and various Championship races, the Boston Marathon is the only marathon in the country that maintains strict qualifying standards, making a “BQ” a highly regarded achievement.
- While the guidelines change from year to year, qualifying times for the 2015 Boston Marathon had to be run on or after September 14, 2013, and registration for the 2015 race ended on September 17, 2014.
