Some of us are in the middle of planning the second annual Daily News Press Run, which will be Sept. 14, featuring 1K, 5K and 10K races (the long ones on the causeway) and benefitting the laudable Newspapers in Education program.

A question arose recently about goodie bags. Most fun runs offer them, but does anybody really want them? I’d be happy to avoid ever being giving another bag with another cheap water bottle or koozie or keychain that I’m never going to use and won’t be able to get rid of. Can I be alone in this?

Our group was divided among people like me, who’d rather not collect or distribute more junk, and people worried that the runners would feel ripped off if we didn’t offer the bags.

I say skip the bags and put the money into either better quality T-shirts (as in not cotton) or the cause we’re all there to support in the first place.

So help us with market research. What swag do you really want from a fun run?
