Global Partners

These organisations play an important role in enriching the parkrun experience. Their support allows us to deliver on our mission of a parkrun in every community that wants one.

Tribesports

Tribesports and parkrun have a five-year partnership 2015-2019, with Tribesports having secured the future of the milestone t-shirt, providing technical t-shirts to the qualifying members of the milestone clubs, free of charge. They also introduced the Volunteer milestone club t-shirt to reward the efforts of parkrun volunteers. In all, both parties expect 300,000 club t-shirts to be awarded over the period of the deal. A sizeable commitment and belief to the parkrun movement by Tribesports.

As a grassroots sportswear brand that champions the everyday athlete, unlike other brands Tribesports doesn’t spend marketing budgets on professional athlete endorsement. Instead they look to gain exposure by working with like-minded partners to help spread their belief in accessibility of both sports participation and quality sportswear.

The partnership is therefore a perfect match of two organisations that share very similar beliefs and ethos. The milestone t-shirts are iconic, celebration tees – they are earned – and require hard work and commitment. Tribesports are proud that these dedicated parkrunners of all levels, ages and nationalities will be working towards a Tribesports product.
