I was told too much food was wasted because the numbers that attend have been declining over the years.

Surprise surprise, no ugly baggy cotton t-shirt from the Manitoba Marathon this year. I've been running this event since 1982 and their t-shirts have always been ugly. This year's shirt actually has some shape. Now if they could only put more than one porta potty on the half marathon route....
