Trail Gear ReUseAPalooza 2010 Winners!

Reduce Reuse RecycleWe just spent three hours drawing the winners of this year’s iRunFar ReUseAPalooza. In all there were an amazing 40 different winners! Congrats to all of them and thanks to everyone who entered. If you’ve won, please contact us with your name, your mailing address, and the prize(s) you won.

Thanks again to Atayne for providing the organic cotton tees. In case you missed it, we chose Earth Week to announce that the iRunFar Store will now be carrying environmentally-responsible shirts with the iRunFar logo.

As we did when we announced the contest, we’ll again encourage you to pass along your no longer used (or rarely used) trail running gear to someone else who can use it. You’ll be helping someone out, decluttering your closet (and life), and reducing the resources needed to produce product the recipient would have otherwise purchased.

[Update: We gave away a few extra shirts and a flashdrive in this post, but they’ve all been claimed.]

    Thanks for such an awesome giveaway. My son is also a runner in the KC Trail Nerds and can wear the Med. Tech Shirt if you have one left. I'll have to email you a picture of your sticker on my truck.

    Thanks again.

    You have medium tech shirts left after you've selected all of the winners. So the part where I commented on the original post (April 19, 2010 at 11:00 am) specifying a medium tech shirt wasn't enough to actually get me into the drawing? I'm confused.

      Nrmrvrk, I apologize. In retrospect, I needed to make a request that folks indicate separately if they would be filling to receive a used hat or shirt. As it happened, in choosing winners for used shirts or hats, I only chose folks who explicitly indicated that they would be willing to accept such items. I didn't want to send used shirts to folks who indicated "any tech shirt" meaning only unused tech shirts, as those shirts might go unused. I understood that there was a small chance that someone such as yourself might not have been rightly awarded a used tee shirt or hat. Fortunately, I've still got more than I actually need. If you do in fact want a used tech shirt, send my your address via the contact page.
