- Looking back on the information provided to us from the website - it was stated it was a Gear (Check) Bag. However, in the Final Information it did say it was a Swag Bag. I have been through so many Exhibitions in my Event Planning career - I have never expected anything from these bags. I see these bags as a way to carry information and samples you collect. I think they should just change the name to "Gear Check Bag" and not say SWAG, as it does lend itself to believe there will be a collection of freebies in the bag.
- Wanted free samples of goodies in the bag? Well - I was overloaded with samples walking around the Expo. Didn't make a difference to me if it was in my Bag or at the Expo.
- This is my first race experience, I didn't expect much - and grateful for the opportunity to run the race. I paid my registration fee based on running a race, not my SWAG or not even what my medal would look like. I registered to run. While I respect others will disagree - I find if I don't expect, I am not disappointed.
As I said, I am new to this world - but I will give up the "swag bag" in a heartbeat - just for the fun and opportunity to run in a race with 28K of my closest friends :)
