I did the survey
1) Accurate course – total distance
2) Pre-race logistics
3) Accurate course – mile markers
4) Reasoable amount of bathroom facilities
5) Expediate awards process
6) Not getting bigger than your pre/during/post race logistics can handle
For any race under a marathon – keep the T-shirt, medal.
For all races – Either make the awards memorable and something worth keeping or save the money just give out 25 cent ribbons – 60% of all awards hit the garbage the day I receive them. I have kept some nice unique things – Antigo Tater Trot have out nice hand painted ceramic running potatoe awards or Oshkosh 1/2 marathon gave out large beer mugs engraved with award info.
