Howdy iRunFar readers,

Here at iRunFar we’re stoked to have spent another year with you.

Thank you for reading, commenting, and supporting us along the way.

Go a Step Further

If you want to go a step further in showing your support of iRunFar, consider making a donation. We now even have an automatic monthly donation method for the most ambitious (and generous) of you. Your donations help us pay our writers, cover more races, and give back to you. For example, we’re giving away dozens of items below at our own expense. That’s how we roll here at iRunFar.

Huge Thanksgiving Giveaway!

So… 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.

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