Thanks for getting in touch LTS.
So guys, I know I'm a pain in the arse with all these backward-looking questions, BUT...having only been running for 10 years myself, do any of you more experienced runners remember
a) when goody bags became a thing at races, and
b) what they used to consist of?
were they cringe-makingly crap, or were they magnificently munificent?!
I started running as my 1st sport in 1993 (ahead of London '94 - my first marathon), although I had run since school and as a compliment to football training.Kerry's question above about goody bags reminded me of the expo for that first marathon.I came home with bags full of free stuff given out by pretty much every stall holder at the expo, as well as picking up laughably cheap old stock of vests/t-shirts.Now I go in, pick up my number and come straight back out again. Its a sales push exercise for all the major sports firms.
