Slow and Steady Wins the Race

He may not be a smart man, but he knows what love is. And when Jenny leaves him with a broken heart the only thing that made sense was to run. No, really, he did a cross-country run for three years to attempt to figure things out. Along the way he inspired lots of people, met new friends, and grew a glorious beard. Now, that's what we call shaking it off!

Product Details

This running Forrest Gump costume is officially licensed and is found exclusively here. Now you can take to the streets this Halloween and run just like Forrest, or maybe just walk (we’d just walk). The yellow polo shirt has a V-placket with a green trim just like in the movie. The trademark red running shorts have white trim and an elastic waist for a comfortable fit. Put the white crew-length socks with red and blue stripes on to really start feeling like a runner. The costume would not be complete without the long brown wig and beard that secure with an elastic band nor the red hat that displays the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. logo.

A Run to Remember

Forrest Gump was many things over the course of his lifetime, but one thing that always stuck with him was running. Ever since he was a kid with leg braces, he found running as a way to escape not only physically but mentally. Whether it was the local bully chasing him down the road after school or a breakup with Jenny, Forrest always turned to running to help make things better. I can’t say we enjoy running quite as much as Forrest, but his efforts were quite admirable.

    Only one problem

    The hat was disappointing. Poor quality and it’s a kid size. For the price of the costume I would have hoped for something that is actually one size fits all or a flex fit. I had to cut the emblem off and tape it to a red hat I bought that fits.
    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Hilarious costume. Fit me well. The beard was super tight around my ears though so I ended up tying a string around it so that it wasn't so tight. Also, I think it's a bit on the pricey side, maybe decrease the amount by $10.00. Other than that, great costume and definitely worth the buy if you're looking for laughs and uniqueness.

    By Current Customer | November 14, 2018
    This costume is hysterical and great except for the shirt. Everything fit my son great, except the shirt was big enough to fit my husband! Fix that issue and it will be a perfect costume!
