I am a Sucker for a Great Swag Bag

A few weeks ago I got an email from the RD of the North Country Run (I had tried to get in this year but it had sold out).


He told me that they were having a "Twitter special". The first 50 people who signed up for the 2013 race received a personalized jacket, a pair of shorts, a hat, and a t-shirt.

All finishers receive a medal that is HUGE. They are the third largest in the country. After seeing these, I can't imagine how big the largest medal is!!!

So I signed up for next years 50 miler....... before the 2012 race had even taken place!.

With awesome swag like that, no wonder they sell out every year!

Are you a sucker for swag? What's been your favorite goodie?

Gotta run.

mmm I like a medal and then luxury nibbles in a SWAG bag - yummy treats I hanker after but only buy occasionally - basically feed me & I'll be happy ;-)

Those medals would make great individual plates for cupcakes :-)

Holy crap, that's one big medal - I like it!! No, I LOVE it!

A friend did this race in Texas, which is supposedly suppose to have the largest medal (but don't quote me on that). Here's his RR from a couple years ago.

I'm a total sucker for swag but I'm often disappointed, especially when I see my Italian friends swag...pasta and wine. I swear with every race they get wine. I wonder what the winners get.

I signed up for a HM because it said the best goody bag ever and the medal. The inside of the medal comes out to wear as jewelry. In 3 weeks I'm running the HM for the 3rd time and I'm supposed to get a special medal. The $90 for the race is worth getting a special medal.
