Limited-Edition Salomon S-Lab Sense Giveaway

Limited-edition Salomon S-Lab Sense giveaway.

By on March 21, 2012 | 48 comments

Here at iRunFar we’ve lucked out and can lay claim to one of 106-pairs of limited edition Salomon S-Lab Sense, only 10 of which will make it to the United States. Now, we’re going to make one of our US readers lucky by sending them their own pair of collector’s item Sense.

Why do I call these “collectors items?” Two reasons. First, as mentioned above, there are only 106 pairs of this shoe world-wide. This limited edition comes with custom sockliners featuring Kilian Jornet’s hand-drawn course notes from his victorious running of the 2011 Western States 100. Second, as there are only 106 pairs, there’s only one size, US men’s size 9.

Whether you’re a size 9 runner who’s going to *egads* run in these shoes or just curious about the Salomon S-Lab Sense, we’ve previously previewed this fantastic shoe. At just under 7 ounces and with a 4 mm heel-toe drop, this shoe is intended for sock-less wear and will be seen at the front of even more trail races this year than last… when only Kilian was lucky enough to wear them. I’ve now had the chance to run in the Sense and they are darn comfortable and plenty fast. For more on the shoe, check out the following video.

To enter, (1) be a US resident and (2) show us you’re a super fan. A super fan of what? Ultrarunning or trail running or Salomon or Kilian or S-Lab products or some combination thereof. How? By creating original content – be it photo, drawing, painting, video, haiku, story, screenplay, animated short, or anything else – and posting it as a comment on this article. If it’s multimedia, you’ll need to post a link to your entry. Entries close at 3:59 am MDT on Monday, March 26. The winner will be chosen at our discretion.

Ps. While it won’t get you anything except good karma, feel free to spread the word about the contest.

Other Websites Holding Limited Edition Salomon S-Lab Sense Contests

We want iRunFar readers to have the best chance possible at winning a pair of these Sense, so we’ve decided to list other US websites holding such contests here… so long as entry into their contests doesn’t involve (lame) promotional actions for the website. Some of the contests aren’t live or we don’t yet have links, but we’ll add them when we can!
