What are premiums??

So...I'm thinking of registering for a 5-miler (gulp!).

Registration page talks about "premiums."

As in:

"Out-of-town Premium Pickup

We intend to coordinate out-of-town premium pickup in Annapolis, Arlington, Columbia, and Silver Spring on the weekend of December 11th."

and

"Premium pickup hours

All entrants may pick up their race premium and race bib number at Falls Road Running Store Saturday December 11 through Friday Dec. 17th at 5PM. Race premium and bib numbers are also available for pick up on race day at the race site under the big tent. Timing chips are picked-up on race day only and must be returned after you cross the finish line."

and

"Women's Essential Run 1/2 Zip Premium

Perfect cover for those in-between days between seasons, this high-performance top is also an effective layering style in colder weather, with a longer zipper for greater ventilation. Includes articulated sleeves and thumbholes. Suggested retail is $55."

So...what is this "premium" of which they speak????

Wow. I have no idea. Is this race run by one of those huge national companies?

I don't think so.

Sounds like they're using it as a snobby synonym for "shirt." But my second thought is...that looks like a cool design, I wish I could run that one!

Yeah, I'm reading it the same way - your race swag shirt. Never heard the term used that way before, though.
