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 sachet of cellulite removal cream. Wtf?
I did think of offering it to the ex Mrs Muttley but decided against it.

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

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!)
The writing on the freebies you got at a French race was all in FRENCH?
Good lord, they really have no idea, do they?
*hides M&S pinny in kitchen for when Cally comes round*
Dark green, with white pinstripe - very handy when making bread or pasta
I got a sachet of minestrone soup from Reading Half. Gagsville! So not what you fancy after running!
The worst bags usually just have leaflets and maybe a dry biscuity oaty thing. Saying that, I like to have a carrier bag with sporty things on them, then people think 'ooh, shes sporty'!

Plus it was in March!!!!!!
(Did get a tshirt and medal aswell though)
Mine was a mug that had a crack in the glaze so now leaks I only did the race for the mug
Some race organisers obviously get a job lot of left over or out of season rubbish that no-one else wants - I find that insulting that they give it away to people who've paid money to compete. They could at least negotiate buying more appropriate items like recovery drinks or bars in bulk or even get the providers give them free as it/'s a prime opportunity to advertise and tap into a relevant market.
