As I plan out my HMs for the rest of the year, I'm thinking I've collected enough medals and wouldn't mind something more practical. Can anyone recommend good HMs that give finisher premiums that are NOT medals? That aren't expected to be worn around your neck?
Don't tell me about medals that spin, open bottles, etc. unless it really IS a bottle opener and not a medal. I guess the way to know for sure is - do you keep it with all your medals or not. (If you keep it in the kitchen drawer with your corkscrew, then it's a bottle opener, not a medal!)
The only HM that I know of (and like) is the Parks Half Marathon which has given out winter hats for the last few years - but at this point I have enough winter hats! I figure there must be other HMs which give out finisher premiums you can actually use.
Hmm, I guess I'll also mention the Annapolis 10 Miler because it is popular with the HMers - the distance makes it an ideal race to do during HM training. ATM traditionally gives out clothing but this year are giving Timex Ironman watches as finisher premiums. I'm kinda torn on this myself because I figure most people already have watches (many have better watches!) and after all, how many running watches does one need?
