Just to balance Everest's thread... what was the worst race trinket you've ever collected.

For me it was my finishing t-shirt at FLM.

There have been some really good FLM t-shirt's over the year's - I particularly like one which says something about 26.2 being the distance runners are measured by.

However, in 04... the phrase was "I've had the heart"

Wet wet wet

I did the Bramley 20 last year and all we got at the finish was a pen :(

I'm doing it again this year...because it is a good race, and I got a PB by 5 minutes last year...so hoping to break that again

T-shirts. Lots of pigging t-shirts. If there are any organisers on here, can you please think of something more innovative than t-shirts - I've got enough to start a refugee shelter!

I can remember one club organised 10k I did when you got absolutely nothing, not even a drink of water! Entry was £7 as well!

Not really one that I've done, but a load from my club did the Keyworth Turkey Trot (I did Bedford half on the same day instead), you got a "handy" wrist or ankle velcro strap thing to with a small pouch to keep your keys/money in.

It was in a crap colour, didn't even mention the name of the race and don't think it fitted anyone's wrists or ankles!!

I've got some really dodgy t-shirts, most of the designs/colours are OK, others are shocking!! Retford Half (good race) is one particular, horrible green colour with a couple of 70's runners on who look like Mr Miyaghi (karate kid)!!

This does remind me that the fastest peeps in the Cabbage Patch 10 mile race do all genuinely win cabbages :).

I'd also like to apologise for spelling Favorite like an American - it's all the fault of this US-centric software I've been working on....

Something to look forward to for this autumn then. Although I doubt I'll be amongst the fastest...

I started LewisKIT for exactly this reason. I want to wear t-shirts/sweats etc that say I am a runner/biker/swimmer etc but I won't wear cheap gaudy coloured ones covered in sponsors logos - they end up in the bike cleaning pile.

small bag of sugar - I'm sure I've had at least three of these - I think tate and lyle must sponsor the great runs.
