I think the DNFs still got a goodie bag and therefore a medal. Saw one guy walking off with a goodie bag when I went past the start after 1 lap.

Oh, that's alright then. I'm not sure I could bring myself to collect a goodie bag if I DNFd, without sounding too pompous about it.

I have had 1 DNF, so the goodie bag but refused the medal.

Medals are for finishers :)

Much as I heart medals, I feel I have to earn them so it wouldn't feel right for me to collect one if I hadn't finished.

But each to their own. They've paid for it after all.

I guess by that token you could fire off entries to loads of races, have them send the medal to you, and never have to run. I see the entry fee as going towards the organisers, road closures, marshalls, and hire of premises - with the medal being a welcome extra if and when I finish.

Got something to say?
