There wasn't a thread, yet, so I though I would start the "rubish Tshirt" thread this year . Seriously, I LOVE the London Marathon, I am an addict you could say, but why OH WHY cannot they provide more sizes, a least different sizes for men and women???

They never have. Never will either I reckon - its easier that way.

Year in year out the shirt is rubbish. The finish area is not as big like the Great North.
So they have little room to provide shirt sizes. Unless they move the finish (unlikely),
it will never happen. Like cougie said, never have, never will.

The only dowside to a great occassion. Would do as a large tent on my holidays.

The last couple of years of Flora sponsorship the shirt were huge, but of good technical quality.  A shame that has not been continued under the new regime.

I don't mind that the t-shirt is cotton, or that it's like a tent, as I never wear them for running anyway, but I was a tad disappointed with the design ... it was like no thought had gone into it whatsoever, which is a bit of a shame as everything else about the whole weekend was brilliant.

At least that little known brand VirginMoney gets some much needed advertising

Well the last yr flora did it it was still a tent size cotton t-shirt so nothings changed really, I wear mine to bed.

Anyone feel like the slogan is a bit more marketing focussed rather than actually about running - I mean "everyone's better off" I know its virgin money but i just didn't see the link with that line and a marathon.

Edited - sorry Phatboy - didn't see your post there - at least it wasn't just me that noticed!

perhaps they knew you'd only wear it to bed.
