Cloud (Size) 9 Shoe Giveaway

Lots of shoes[Note: This contest is now closed. Winners were announced here.]

As you might expect, we receive a great many shoes here at iRunFar. Some arrive as sample for possible reviews (we usually only publish our favorites), while we pick up others at various events. We keep some reference pairs, but at some point we need to unload most of them whether we like the shoes or not. That’s why if you are a men’s size 9 (or 9.5) today might be your lucky day. As part of a week long series of contests, we’re giving away 8 pairs of trail shoes!

Details on how to enter follow the list of available shoes. Note that while each pair of shoes has been worn, they’re all in excellent, darn-close-to-new condition.

BTW, here’s an index to all of our contests this week.

The Rules
Really, there are no rules to speak of. To enter, just leave a comment (please do this directly on the website, not via email) with your name and location. While not necessary, please include your email in the confidential box above the main comment box to help expedite our getting your brand new gear out to you (if you win). In the name of responsible shipping (and our non-existent budget) we’re limiting this contest to American and Canadian shipping locations only.

We ask that you please note in the comment only the gear pieces in which you are most interested. Your specific requests add to our work, but mean the gear goes to the folks for whom it would be most useful. There’s no limit to the number of items you can enter (see paragraph below) to win, we just ask that you are thoughtful in entering the contest.

The drawing for each item will be random … for the most part. One caveat of this giveaway is that you’ll only walk away with one item. (A good reason to only enter for the items you want most.) With that in mind, there may be instances where we will deliberately divvy up prizes so that more people walk away happy.

To be eligible, you need to enter by 5 p.m. PDT on Friday, October 15. We’ll post results from all of our One Miiillllionth Pageview contests on October 18th.

A Favor
We don’t make you “do” anything to enter this giveaway. No need to fill out a form, sign up for this, or subscribe to that. However, if you appreciate iRunFar and what it does, we just ask that you spread the word. You could share news of this giveaway with others, link to iRunFar on your blog or website, or tell your buddies about the website on your next run.

While you’re at it, consider further embracing the iRunFar community through one of the following options. Not only will they keep you better informed (we share different news on the website, the Facebook page, and Twitter), but you’ll help us out, too!

Also, anyone looking for a free iRunFar bumper sticker, please use our contact page to request one. We’ll need your full address for that! Folks, we ship these free anywhere in the world. Really!

    I'm a flatlander from Iowa who is looking to make the move from cross country and track to the trails of the mountain west. The La Sportivas or North Face Single Tracks look like a good fit.

    Enjoy your interviews with the leaders of the ultra pack.

    Plzzzz… I am a foreigner PhD student from Brazil that survives on a very small fellowship, I've been considering running bare foot just because buying shoes it is a big deal for me! When I retire my shoes they are unbelievably worn out, one hole is not enough for it. Nonetheless running far is the only thing that keeps me sane.

    I use number 9, and would love to get a Salomon SpeedCross 2. But really, I accept anything! Thanks a lot! L

    I'd love anything for trail running. I'm a guy in the navy and love to take my dog on the trails. Anything in a 9 would be awsome
