1) Nike Women’s Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, Calif.

Run 13.1 miles, collect Tiffany’s necklace? Yes, please! Wrapped up in the iconic blue box, runners who cross the finish line will receive a medal that is suitable to wear to the office.

2) Akron Half Marathon in Akron, Ohio

Okay, so socks aren’t like a Ferrari, but for runners with drawers full of race t-shirts, socks are a welcome change. Swiftwift socks is a sponsor for the race and all finishers will receive a pair.

3) Space Coast Half Marathon in Cocoa, Fla.

Looking for swag that will actually get used? With the Space Coast Half Marathon course located almost entirely parallel to the Atlantic Ocean, the finisher’s beach towel is a genius idea.

4) Anthem Richmond Half Marathon – Richmond, Va.

Cozy up with a fleece finisher’s blanket all winter long. This mid-November race is the perfect time to hand out gear that will keep you warm for months to come.

5) Sun Capital Half Marathon in Boca Raton, Fla.

Okay, donuts aren’t a long lasting memento, but a half dozen of them for each finisher is definitely cause for acknowledgement. With proceeds benefiting the Boca Raton Police Athletic League, you have to appreciate their tongue and cheek humor.
