Black Friday 500th Post Blowout Giveway Extravaganza?!?!

A few months ago we realized that iRunFar.com was quickly approaching its 500th post. We briefly toyed with approaching companies to provide product to giveaway in honor of this milestone, but noticed that we already have a huge stash of gear here at iRunFar world headquarters. As luck would have it, our 500th post coincides with Black Friday… a day on which we had a huge giveaway last year. We guess we’ll have to call this a tradition. Whatever we call it, there’s a ton of gear to giveaway and some of it could be yours. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment with your name and the items in which you’re interested in winning. Below are the Rules and the Prizes!

The Rules
Really, there are no rules to speak of. To enter, just leave a comment as described above. If you’re comfortable leaving your full name, go for it. Otherwise, a first name along with a final initial and town should be fine. We’re not trying to collect your confidential info, we simply need a way to identify the winners. We are afraid that we’ll have to limit 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. The 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 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 with the exception of small smaller prizes. (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, December 4. We’ll post results on Monday, December 7.

The Prizes
You’ll notice that some of the products listed below note light use. All that means we briefly tested the product. We wouldn’t be giving you anything that’s heavily worn or that we wouldn’t accept if we needed that type of gear.

Gear

  • Rab Quantum Top Bag AR (very light use) – Folks, this is a top of the line, ultra lightweight sleeping bag. It weighs all of 19.4 ounces (550 g) and would be a great addition to a stage racing or fastpacking kit for use in places with moderate nighttime temps.

Hydration/Packs

  • Black Diamond BBEE (orange) – If this 12-liter pack were any more minimalist it would cease to exist and yet is still has internal pockets, hydration capability, and an adjustable sternum strap.
  • Body Bottle – A 10-ounce water flask that Velcros to an arm band. Yeah, you heard us right.
  • HydraCoach Intelligent Water Bottle (light use) – This water bottle isn’t the sort of bottle you’d run with, but it does monitor your fluid intake.
  • Leadville 100 Totebag/Backpack – This jack-of-all-trades bag has a cell phone holster and water bottle holder, too. This is NOT for running!
  • Nathan QuickDraw Plus (black) – You can’t go wrong with Nathan’s excellent handheld bottle carrier.
  • Polarpak Flowjo (light use) – The waist belt hydration bladder uses Polarpak’s Moflow technology to shoot water into your mouth once the system is pressurized.
  • Salomon Ultra Twin Belt (used once) – Not available in the US, give this Salomon double bottle belt (with Salomon’s triangular bottles) a go. As a bonus, we’ve already trimmed down the lengthy waist belt strap. ;-)
  • Water bottles – If you need water bottles, just let us know… they don’t hurt your chances of winning other prizes.

Apparel

  • Rab Drillium (medium size – light use) – eVent fabric makes this shell a game saver on cold, wet runs.
  • Gore Running Wear Mythos SO Jacket (men’s medium – light use) – A highly technical soft shell with W.L. Gore’s Windstopper fabric. It’s black, but has excellent reflective features for your night runs this winter.
  • Saucony Polartec Thermal Pro Hoody (men’s medium – gray) – Looking for a “technical sweatshirt” to keep you warm this winter? Look no further than this full-zip sweatshirt made from Polartec’s Thermal Pro fabric. (Blue version of sweatshirt here.)
  • Original Buff (2 in green) – Other websites might list a Buff under hats, we know better. We’ve previously reviewed the Original Buff and the Merino Wool Buff.

Shoes

  • Merrell CT Converge II (men’s 9.5 – light use) – A high mileage, neutral road shoe.
  • Montrail Hardrock 09 (men’s 9 – light to mild use, more scuffs than anything) – The final model in Montrail’s legendary Hardrock series (look for the forthcoming Sabino Trail).
  • Teva CT-140 (men’s 9 – light use) – A trail/road hybrid that’s never going to see the light of day now that Teva has stepped out of the running shoe business.

Shirts
[Note: Winning a prize in the “Shirts,” “Hat,” or “Other” categories does not preclude one from winning other prizes.]

  • Mountain Hardwear Duration s/s shirt (men’s medium – light use – khaki) – A solid (performance and color) tech shirt with chitosan for odor control.
  • Annecime (men’s medium – worn once – white) – cotton short-sleeve hand-imported from France.
  • Blue Ribbon Run (men’s medium – white) – Old school graphics on a cotton short-sleeve T from Silverton, Colorado’s Fourth of July Run this year.
  • Leadville Trail 100 (men’s medium – black) – A technical, long-sleeve T from this year’s Leadville Trail 100 mile run.
  • Pocatello 50 (men’s medium – blue) – cotton/poly blend short-sleeve.
  • Rudy Project (men’s medium – gray) – cotton short-sleeve.
  • Shoe-Odometer (men’s medium – yellow) – technical short-sleeve.
  • Vasque “Run in sync with nature.” (men’s medium – gray) – cotton short-sleeve T made by American Apparel.

Hats
[Note: Winning a prize in the “Shirts,” “Hat,” or “Other” categories does not preclude one from winning other prizes.]

Other
[Note: Winning a prize in the “Shirts,” “Hats,” or “Other” categories does not preclude one from winning other prizes.]

  • Darn Tough Run-Bike 1/4 Sock – Cushion (Large) – Well-cushioned merino wool socks.
  • Jimi Wallet (orange) – A minimalist, splash-proof wallet.
  • Nike Running/Cycling Non-Cushion Sock (unisex, but sized men’s 9-11 – black) – Winner get’s 3 pairs of these simple 1/4 cut Dri-Max socks.
  • Salus Muscle Relief Gel – We’re a skeptical lot… but call use convinced. This stuff takes our pain away.
  • Vasque Bandana – A badass, black bandana.

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 or tell them about the website on your next run.

    Patrick Garcia, Denver, CO:Nathan QuickDraw Plus Saucony Polartec Thermal Pro Hoody Mountain Hardwear Duration s/s shirtGU Energy Gel-branded Headsweats SuperVisorVasque BandanaPS. Just my thoughts, but this gear "recycling" is phenomenal. Good for us, good for iRunfar, and good for the enviornment! Thanks!

  10. Bryon Powell

    Thanks, Patrick. I do my best not to let stuff go to waste… and, in fact, that anything I don't need goes to those who'll use products for their intended purpose. That said, some of the gear items were a bit too worn to award as prizes on iRunFar, but don't worry, anything that is still usable be donated to a charity.Some of the gear is 100% new. I get lots of gear and for whatever reason some never gets used. (It might mean that I already have one… or ten of the item, as is the case with the Nathan QuickDraw Plus.) For other items, I use them as appropriate for testing and then need to move on to the next item, such as with the shoes I offer. As I mention in the post, I wouldn't give anything away in this or any iRunFar contest that I wouldn't accept myself.

    Karl,I could swing the Patron and you can have a swig of my moonshine… though it's of the North Carolina variety. I'm afraid the $5,000 will have to wait, but if you hear of a good source, let me know.Ps. Finish out the decade with a bang at Chimera! Would one last 100 mile win put you over 200 for the decade?

    Bryan, one more 100 mile win would give me 29 100 mile wins, 43 finished. If I finish this one, it'll be "ultra" #103. I need another decade to get to 200. Maybe they'll all be 100s from this point out. I am getting slower you know. Great giveaway, very cool!

    Jason,The medium sizes on apparel and men's 9 sizing on the shoes is an unfortunate side effect of those being my sizes. Know that when I work directly with companies on setting up contests, I lobby to have sizing determined after the contest is over (check out my post on Monday… ;-) ).

    Bryon, I'd happily provide David with the swift kick in the butt for you, and offer Keith a bonus one since he can't even spell our own hometown correctly;)…by the way. I could use a Jimi wallet from Santa.

    Hi Bryon!I could really use a totebag/backpack. I don't like wearing/using race-branded stuff, unless I ran it. So if I win the bag, then I'll just have to signup & run Leadville :-) I could also make good use of the GU Supervisor (I don't have a visor).Also, if you have any Nathan 22ounce water bottles, then I would make great use of them, too! Thanks again!-Brad KNJ

I have to tell you, I love having your bumper sticker on my car. It always gives me a huge smile to see the sticker on my car in the city streets.
