While I was in Thailand, I got an email from the Chicago Half Marathon with an offer to give away a free race registration to either the Chicago Half or the Hyundai Hope on Wheels 5K, both on Sunday, September 8. I've never done a giveaway on Outside Time before, but I seriously jumped at the chance to give away a free race registration for an awesome race like the Chicago Half.
I wasn't able to run it last year, but everyone I know who ran it had wonderful things to say: it's super organized, they offer a tech shirt and medal, there are lots of pace groups, a big expo the day before, and it's a chance to run along a closed Lakeshore Drive. If I hadn't moved to North Carolina, I'd definitely be running it next month.
Chicago Half Marathon & Hyundai Hope on Wheels 5K GIVEAWAY!
One free registration to either the half marathon or 5K.
Deadline to enter: Sunday, August 11 at 5PM EST
How to enter:
1. REQUIRED: Leave a comment telling me which you'd rather run: the Chicago Half or the Hope on Wheels 5K, and why.
2. BONUS ENTRY! Tweet about this giveaway with a link to this post and leave a comment letting me know you did!
I will choose a winner on Sunday using a random number generator, and I will announce the winner on Monday.
