  • Those rubbish dried friut apricot things that keep putting up everywhere. They are like eating freaze dried snot. image
  •  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..
  • reading half had a box of tea bags - just what you fancy but a bit random
  • i think you win though BBH!! Lol

    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 image
  • The writing on the freebies you got at a French race was all in FRENCH?

    Good lord, they really have no idea, do they? image

  • worst? a hideous yellow apron!

    ffs who wears aprons??*



    *well unless for work reasons image
  • *hides M&S pinny in kitchen for when Cally comes round*

    image

  • Dark green, with white pinstripe - very handy when making bread or pasta image

  • well ok.. good points well made image

    but this one was plastic and yellow... and ... and....

  • Fake tan, just what you need at the end of a half marathon. How odd and it wasn't very good.
  • I got a sachet of minestrone soup from Reading Half. Gagsville! image 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 mugimage

  • At the end of the Belfast marathon everyone was handed a packet of crisps - not even a goody bag - the worst thing was they weren't even decent crisps but those low fat rice cakey jobbies flavoured with sundried tomato or something - I threw mine in a large skip and lloked in to see hundreds of packs where I wasn't the only one who didn't like them!image
  • 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.
