The Tracksmith sash is inspired by the Cornell track and field teams of the late 1800’s. Athletes who scored points at the league championships earned a satin sash, sewn over the “C” on their singlet. It’s an symbol of excellence that we hope will inspire runners to perform at a level worthy of all those who’ve worn it before.
When “Boston Billy” Rodgers won the Boston Marathon in 1975, setting his first American Record at 2:09:55, he famously did so in a mesh tee he found in the trash. Inspired by his legendary performance, Tracksmith scoured the earth for the very finest performance mesh. Astonishingly lightweight and antimicrobial with a luxurious feel you won’t find anything like our 2:09 Mesh in a dumpster.
