Hoppit 2023 Tee Shirt And Vest Design
We are delighted to announce the 2023 design for the Hampshire Hoppit Finishers Tee Shirt and Vest. We love it, and hope you do too. Once again it has been designed by our talented friends at Alive With Ideas, a marketing agency based in Basingstoke.
All profits from the sale of tees and vests go to Hampshire & Isle Of Wight Air Ambulance.
These technical tees and vests are designed for runners, and retail at £15 per item. They are available to order from the Hoppit ‘Enter Now’ tab, when registering for the race. They are available in all Mens and (fitted) Ladies fittings, from XS to XXL.
If you have already registered but not ordered a shirt or vest, and would like one, then you can go back to your entry and add the item. Use the Enter Now tab from the Hoppit website, and then page to the bottom of the screen, and select My Registration. Once you have done that, you can access your entry by entering the email address that you used when registering, as well as your order number. On the next screen, click on Merchandise. You will then be taken to the Merchandise page where you can order your tee or vest, and then pay for it.

Our 2023 Medal!!
We are delighted to announce the design for the 2023 finisher medal. We think that it will be a fantastic addition to the Hoppit collection of those that have some (or perhaps all?) of the previous medals.
The 2023 design includes…
– Spinning beer glass motif (one side representing a full glass, the other side representing almost empty!)
– Bottle opener capability plus ribbon loop
– ‘2023’ partly cutout and indented at medal base
– Hoppit logo and branding
We hope you like it!
