Lamentably mine are in a box and rarely see the light of day.  I've contemplated hanging them up on a nail somewhere - the garage perhaps - but I have not got around to it.  I do like medals and should make more use of them as they are the best 'reward' for finishing imho.

T shirts usually find their way into the bin after 12 months or so after being used to sleep in.  I only have one longsleeved one left, which has my name on the back.   I had two mugs over the years but the wife has a special talent for breaking crockery.  I'm planning on doing a race next month and there is a finishers mug - I resolve to keep it on a special shelf in my man cave.

I once received a pie - that was 'interesting' & also a running hat - Turkey Trot at 'Keyworth' I think.

Yesterday I ran the Christchurch Marathon and finishers received nothing - very, very disappointing.

 Apologies I've gone off-topic

I'm interested in doing this event.  I am coming from New Zealand.  If I enter online how do I get my suit?  I can provide a UK address on my entry if necessary.

 Any chance of an ALL BLACK Santa suit?

Thanks heaps, Will

I'm doing it! Will be entering on the day so Joanne's news is good for me if not the organisers.

Hey - well done, getting back running. I too have had a 3 month rest after the FLM. Mine was due to a broken foot. I fell down the stairs the week after the marathon. Starting running again has been really hard work.

I did a race last week (much too adventurous) it was only 5 miles but it took me a whopping 7 mins longer than the last time I ran that distance.

I can't even imagine running 26.2 miles at the moment but I too have sent off my application for FLM 2005. Fingers X'd.

Gary - I've entered and 'providing' I finish I'm hoping for a T Shirt of any colour so long as it isn't white.

Kingfisher - I thought Retford was a little on the steep side in parts - this race is 'allegedly' tougher. No doubt Gary can tell us.
