Run With Me, FOR FREE!!!!!!

     While Santa was making his rounds dropping off all his gifts to the good boys and girls of the world he did a favor for the organizers of the Glass City Marathon and dropped off TWO FREE ENTRIES for me to give away to two lucky readers of my blog.  The winners of these two entries may use them to participate in their choice of The Glass City Marathon, Owens Corning Half Marathon or 5K

     It was an honor for me to be asked to represent this race, not only because it is my hometown race, but because it is such a well organized race that takes great care to deliver a top notch race experience.  The Glass City Marathon prides itself on being a flat fast course great for those going for a Boston Qualifying time, better known as a BQ.  If nothing more than a great race experience is your goal than look no further.  Race weekend features corrals at the starting line, pacing teams, chip timing and a finishers book that is sent to you after the race.  Marathon and Half Marathon finishers receive a quality made finishers medal that you will feel proud to display around your neck.  Additionally, every runner receives a quality event shirt and a glass mug paying homage to Toledo, which is known also as The Glass City.  Amongst all that the organizers manage to put together a wonderful post race party featuring top notch local musical entertainment, quality food from from local establishments, free swag from local business and sponsors, FREE Massages for runners and last but not least most runners favorite post race adult brewed beverage.  There has been beer in years past anyway so I am assuming there will be this year.

The drawing is now closed
*These entries cannot be used for entry into the relay event, but may be used in the Glass City Marathon, Owens Corning Half Marathon or 5K on race weekend of 2015.  I am not buying you a race entry, the amazing people who put together this race weekend are allowing me to slide you in for free due to my status as a Glass City Marathon ambassador.
     Just a reminder, the early bird registration period for these races ends at the end of the year and the price will increase on January 1st.  If you don't wanna wait to see if you won a free registration and want to take advantage of the early bird pricing you my do so by clicking here for registration.
