Some of the other great answers (at least I thought so) were - a map of the race (including port-o-potty stops), "throw away" gloves (for races that start off a little chilly) that would be donated afterwards, discounts for future races (either for the same race the following year or for races put on by the same company), LESS PAPER (all of the fliers with "discount codes" should be made into a VIRTUAL goodie bag that you can access online and SAVE THE TREES), shoe light/ reflector (runner's safety is IMPORTANT - make sure to be seen), a list of things to do before leaving the area (great for runners traveling to the race), reusable water bottles, and the list went on and on.
Well, it got me thinking that I have received TONS of samples from Expos, Race Goodie Bags, etc and I have them just sitting on a desk. Either I haven't gotten around to trying them out or haven't found the need for them (for example, I have received some AWESOME samples for things that prevent blisters, but I don't have an issue with blisters, so the samples are just sitting there, not being used).
I went through everything yesterday and saw I had enough to fill TWO small boxes. I even split everything up evenly with all of the duplicates I had, so the two boxes are almost identical.
Some of the items included are: Body Glide, a Clif Bar, Smarty Pants Gummy Vitamins, Gu, Udderly Smooth Lotion, etc.
**PLEASE NOTE - THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOT SPONSORED BY ANY OF THESE COMPANIES, I AM STRICTLY GIVING AWAY ITEMS THAT I HAVE RECEIVED ELSEWHERE AND HAVEN'T USED.**
I figured I would rather they go to someone who will use them than to continue sitting on my desk. My loss is your gain! Make sure to enter below for your chance to win!! Two winners will be selected ;) And you can even increase your odds by entering daily on some of the options!!
