What is the strangest object found in a post-race goody bag?
A DVD of people snowboarding....
at the south downs last year
Sports Relief mile a couple of years ago: included a bright red scrunchy thing, bottled London tapwater (enviromentally freindly...) and a single sock. You got the other sock before the run.
Going slightly off topic: I've been known to volunteer as a steward at SF conventions. One organiser at their first convention gave all the stewards the perk of having their photo taken with the (celebrity) guests. At their next convention they'd obviously realised how much time/money that cost, so instead they gave us all a picture of the organisers with the guests. Everyone was very polite but not impressed! It would have been OK if they'd just given us all an exclusive picture of the guests... LOL
A single sock?
BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA
a big pink plastic apron ( it was a womens race) and a booklet giving housework tips.......
better was this years cure leukaemia race, they just handed out a bar of cadburys and some water to all finishers. simple.
Ladenburg triathlon always gives out bags of potatoes to the finishers, it's become quite a tradition. Lugging 5lb of spuds back to the car along with my bike, helmet, transition bag, wetsuit, etc, is almost more of a challenge than doing the race!
At one race I got a pair of men's swim briefs, very odd as I'm female!
Great idea at a local duathlon, instead of medals all the prizes are baskets of fresh fruit and veg.
Anyone else confused by the single Fishermans Friend from the BUPA races?
That's the last thing I want after a race.....
Run in France, when you can, music during the races and the goodies bag, in addition to energy bars, they have sample of body wash and deodorants.
Unless it is a tradition and a souvenir from the region ( ie natural salt from noirmoutiers, small bottle of wine from le Luberon,or even potatoes as a tradition) pasta, sugar,and even mayonnaise tells you of the desparation to get hold of decent sponsors.
This waste of food and the littering are not part of the runners' conducts.
It is like shooting ourselves in the foot. On the one hand, we run to support charities/events and make our contributions. On the other hand the organisers throw money away due to their lack of common sense.
Why dont they donate all of this to charities or even send it to countries during disasters?
Runners couldnt be more proud for this double contribution
