Just thought id pop on and ask for some honest opinions on something a bit different.
How would you feel about receiving a photo as a race memento? Well, it would be a voucher that you can use to log on to a photographers website to claim your photo. It would be posted out to you, all you would have to do is log on find yourself and enter your address.
Honest thoughts please
I think it's a great idea. 100 times better than getting a medal (as long as you get my good side!)
I'd rather have a medal and the option to buy any photographs if I like them.
The option to buy the photos will be there if we didnt go with them. The other option is a Kit bag. Thanks folks, keep the opinions coming x
now after years of running, sadly medals dont mean anything - but a nice photo yes - we are inundated with photos - and never get fed up with them - some blown up to A3 and framed on wall
but i completely understand those who do love their medals
Dave - thats a good one
are u keeping ok
I wouldnt want a photo as i usually look like i've been dragged through a hedge backwards while having a bucket of water thrown over me when i've finished a race!
damn all those people who can finish and still look good!
good to hear that - weather messed our plans up as well
were next hopefully ( if i'm well enough ) for Wokingham Hm - a gentle one not race pace
ive considered Paris - and been excepted more than once - but travelling with Phil is not easy - so i left it
i wish you well
Race photos. Jeez. Who *really* wants a photo of themselves looking like a wrecked, sweaty mess after a run? Where does it end up? In a draw. Besides, any family member or friend, even another runner, can take the photo. If a race offered that as a momento I'd find something else to run in. The race photos (like those from Marathon Photos and their kin) area always crap - poorly framed, and poorly processed/colour-balanced.
Dave the Ex-Spartan has the best idea.
Intermanaut - It is a professional photographer and photo studio we are using. We are a 10k and have a castle as the backdrop. Unfortunatly money of the entry isnt an option.
Would you rather the kit bag?
A post-event photo taken in front of a castle by a pro has no more value than one taken by somone's mum/dad/wife/girlfriend/kid/etc. Unless you're getting Rankin or Jarvis, that is.
Kit bag? No. I'd be happy with a bacon butty and a reasonable latte.
Dave The Ex Spartan. Because some people expect "something". Its not an option to do both. I do see where your coming from. Part of the reason we are trying to come up with something new is that Ive read on here that t shirts are binned and they are fed up with medals. There isnt a middle ground that keeps everyone happy. Ive asked on her to get a sweeping opiniion on what people do like. We have just put our entry up from £8 to £10 last year for the first time in years
