As you probably know by now, iRunFar is going through some major changes at the moment. As part of the changes, we need to unload some of our gear – both new and old. Who better to give it to then’s readers. If you are interested in an item, leave a comment noting the item(s) in which you are interested as well as your name and home town (US and Canada only), so we can identify the winners. We’ll draw the winners first thing Wednesday morning (June 10), so be sure to leave a comment before then. [6/10 Update: Entries now closed] If you enter, please check back on Wednesday and, if you win an item, send us your address ASAP, so we don’t have to drive your winnings clear across two countries. Keep reading to see what’s available.
