Seasoned London Marathon runners will know that at the end of the race you are presented with a goody bag containing a 'tent' - supposed to be a finishers T-Shirt! Over the years the organisers have only issued EXTRA LARGE T-Shirts to every runner! This is fine if you are EXTRA LARGE but a good proportion of us are small, medium or large! I wrote a letter to Running Fitness magazine in April, which was published, in the hope that this issue would be seen by the marathon organisers. Then, a couple of weeks ago I rang the London Marathon office and was told that whilst they were considering a change in the future, only EXTRA LARGE T-Shirts would be issued at the 2010 Virgin London Marathon. I think this is a shame but it could be a clever idea by the organisers who perhaps hope we will all buy the official Adidas VLM T-Shirts at the Expo instead? What do you guys think? I doubt it is worth protesting too much as I expect the contracts have already been placed for the T-Shirts next year!
