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!

    It would be great to get any of those size 9 trail running shoes.

    I hate getting my road running shoes so dirty.

    I started running for the first time on a regular basis four months ago. I turned 50 this year and I'm consistently running about 8:10 miles. I'm pretty happy but want to do better.

    Hi,

    What a great insightful site. Greetings from the uk!

    The Golite Comps in 9.5 would be a great replacement for a pair I wore out over the winter runs last year – they're bonkers to look at and work terrifically well

    Best wishes, Mike

    Would love a pair of the GoLite Comp or Montrail Sabino Trail. Just finished pacing my brother to his first 100-miler and need a new pair of trail shoes as I help him to complete his pursuit of The Beast series.

    I would love to win the size 9 Salomon speed crosses, becasue if I bought another pair of trail shoes my wife would probably divorce me, or worse follow through with her threats and start throwing my shoes away. BUT… if I won a pair that would be OK…. So please help save my marriage…I need to hit the trails on those Salomon's…Thanks Tom
