Iknowiknowiknow!

we don`t enter races for the freebies at the end, but what is the worst `prize` that you`ve received for your sweat and toil?

 A bag with a Pot Noodle in, no hot water to put in it - ??

A sachet of cellulite removal cream. Wtf?

I did think of offering it to the ex Mrs Muttley but decided against it.

Good idea Muttley if you want your legs broken.

PS.   I speak as a woman, not as a friend of the ex Mrs Muttley.

The best (aka worst) was a carrier bag that contained an advertising flyer that was given out at a local, and pretty large, half marathon!

Germoline wipes, especially as I later found out that those people who finished quicker got better things in their goodie bags.

Silverstone Half Marathon had a great goody bag (should do it was expensive) but it contained a jar (yes glass jar) of Cranberry Sauce? Surely a carton of Cranberry would have been better.

I've only done 5 races, but the worst prize i got was a plastic water bottle, which I thought was ok (I've used it a lot!), but someone else described as 'craptacular' in the race ratings, which made me laugh.

"Craptacular"?? Thats going to be my word of the week!

Those vile Swiss herbal sweets seem to crop up time and time again, and once I had a can of 'Wellwoman' drink which was disgusting

It's a great word isn't it?!
I also got a very unflattering shiny green vest in one race, but as it was in aid of the NSPCC I didn't mind!

No bag , just a  beer mat advertising the event I'd just completed..

The bottle of Liptonice or whatever it was in the FLM '07 goody bag made me realise that I really don't like ice tea.  If a drink doesn't taste nice the end of the warmest London marathon on record, that's not a good thing.

(Free can of London Pride at the Expo before the race though - top banana!)

No goody bag, medal, t-shirt, but an A5 certificate for me to fill in that I'd completed a half-marathon! They've moved on since then

The one that gave me the idea for this thread was the bag I got at the end of a recent 10-miler. It had Cadbury`s chocolates in there, with a Father Christmas picture on the box; it was August.

Not quite a gooy bag, but the Box Hill Knacker Cracker last year had a post race raffle.  The first few prizes were sensible but by about 4th prize they were offering 5 kilos of cheese - apparently the organisers had bought a tad too much for the post race sandwiches and had to get rid of it somehow.

I got the cranberry sauce in a goody bag recently - can't remember which race it was now. Got a disposable razer in my first FLM goody bag - just what you need at the end of a marathon!

Melds, if you get any of the vile herbal sweets chuck 'em in my direction!!


"Craptacular" now that's a superb word!!!

Paris Marathon we had a couple of mens products in the bag regardless of our gender.  It was all written in french.  I thought one of the items was an energy gel, but it wasn't and i found out the hard way
