I’m pretty underwhelmed by this year’s BMO Vancouver Marathon finisher medals and shirts. I feel that an event that is billed as a world-class event—and charing near world-class entry fees, on par with the SeaWheeze—they would offer nicer swag.
While I think the yellow colour is a great change from the usual race shirt colours, I’m disappointed that it is only a short sleeve.
Ah well, race swag is only a small part of why we run, especially marathons. The true reward is the sense of accomplishment from finishing!
What do you think of this year’s medals and shirts? Am I being to harsh?
What is your favourite race swag?
