2013 Thanksgiving Giveway: Bonus Edition

A bonus edition of iRunFar’s 2013 Thanksgiving Giveaway.

By on November 29, 2013 | Comments

Howdy iRunFar readers,

Bryon here again to, well, thank you again. So, thanks! Okay, that’s not how I’m going to say thanks. While it hardly seems possible after the 75-item giveaway contest we launched yesterday, we’re launching a second, entirely new contest today. Boom!

Bonus: We’ve launched a third contest with nearly 200 items!

But first a few words, if you’ll indulge me.

Holiday Sale at the iRunFar Store

We’ll never push you to buy new gear from us or anyone else, for that matter. Gear serves a purpose: to help us safely and happily complete our running adventures. It is not, in and of itself, a source of happiness, pride, joy, accomplishment, or anything else. That said, most of us will buy a new piece of gear from time to time. With that in mind, if you’ve been looking for Salomon trail shoes, Ultimate Direction hydration equipment, Mountain Hardwear apparel, Petzl headlamps, Black Diamond Z-Poles, or almost anything else found in the iRunFar Store, we’ve got it on sale for 20% off at the moment. Stop by the store and have a look before the sale ends on Monday.

Ps. We’ve got some great items on clearance at even bigger discounts.

How to Support iRunFar at No Cost

While we sincerely hope you make only thoughtful, necessary purchases for yourselves and others, we’re sure some of you will make online purchases this holiday season… or at least some time in the future. Well, if you ever want to support iRunFar without it costing you a thing, make your Amazon.com or Backcountry.com purchases after clicking through the respective company’s link in this article, on the Help Support iRunFar page linked at the top of iRunFar, or, in the case of Amazon.com, in iRunFar’s sidebar. (If you’re in Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, or the UK, we have Amazon links by which you, too, can support iRunFar.)

Without paying a penny more, you support iRunFar when you make purchases by going through these links. (BTW, you have to add the item to your cart after clicking through the iRunFar link.) We’re happy to answer any questions you might have.

Huge Thanksgiving Contest: Bonus Edition

So, this contest works exactly like the one we launched yesterday. We’re giving away a ton of gear and goodies as a way to say thank you to all of you. We also think it’s right to put good gear to its highest possible (i.e., intended) use. Most of the goods in the giveaway are brand new. Some are lightly used. If an item has been lightly used, we’ve noted as much next to the item below. Lightly used items may have a touch of dirt on them, but they show no wear and we’d be happy to welcome equivalently used goods into our lives.

To enter, all you need to do is complete the contact information (name, email, and address) and put a check next to the items in which you are interested by December 9. That’s it.

(To be eligible for prizes, you must fill out the contact information completely. We will use this information only to contact and ship items to winners. It will not be used for marketing or other purposes.)

Yes, this contest is open to everyone. Everywhere. Period.

We’ll limit prizes to one per person to spread the love.

1, 2, 3, go!

[Editor’s Note: The contest is now closed.]
