One Miiiillllionth Pageview Thank You Giveaway

1,000,000 pageviewsSometime while we were jetting around the Northern Hemisphere in late August, we hit a milestone: our one millionth pageview. Quite frankly, we’re still dumbfounded. It took iRunFar (as it exists now) an entire year to hit 100,000 pageviews. We now hit that in about a month. Crazy.

Anyway, we want to thank all of you! How are we going to do it? With our biggest giveaway to date. In fact, it’s so big that we’ll need to kick off a new contest every day this week. We’ve got two large boxes and a couple shelves full of new and lightly-used gear to send your way. Plus, we’ve got huge giveaways from The North Face and New Balance. Here’s how this week will play out on iRunFar.

A Favor
We don’t make you “do” anything to enter any of these contests. No need to fill out a survey, 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, link to iRunFar on your blog or website, or tell your buddies about the website on your next run.

While you’re at it, consider further embracing the iRunFar community through one of the following options. Not only will they keep you better informed (we share different news on the website, the Facebook page, and Twitter), but you’ll help us out, too!

Also, anyone looking for a free iRunFar bumper sticker, please use our contact page to request one. We’ll need your full address for that! Folks, we ship these free anywhere in the world. Really!

    I follow a lot of running websites Bryon, but yours is the only one I use as a news source and read daily. It's amazing how far your site has come since it's early blog days. Cheers.

    I remember when I first started reading iRUNFAR. I just found you by chance. It was to be my lucky day and good fortune. Thanks for a great running site and wonderful info.

    Not surprised considering how good the site is and with your full time focus the site has really gone to the next level.

    Congrats and I look forward to returning another million times

    A well deserved milestone. Now it's time to open up some forums for your readers to connect and for your advertisers to target their content. Keep up the great work – here's to the next million!!

      Thanks, Matt. I've long debated about forums… and went so far as to flesh one out a few months ago. [Removed link to no-longer-existent forum.]

      I've yet to launch it, as I've not found the time to integrate the iRunFar look. Let me know if you have any specific suggestions on them.

      Ps. iRunFar doesn't have any advertisers… yet. That will happen soon enough.

        There are several of us at RWOL forums that would likely haunt iRunFar forums if you ever roll it out. We are a frisky and fun bunch, just a little heads up for you…

    Congratulations Bryon!! I tell evrybody i can about the site and your services. Keep up the great work. looking forward to stories on how your training is going.

      Thanks, Adam. I'm not sure you want stories about my training these days… not all that inspiring. Of course, I guess realism is good, too. I just struggled through a 10 miler. Two and a half miles in I had serious anxiety about even trying to run the full 10. It ain't pretty at the moment.

    Hey Bryon – the beta-forums that you set up look great! As long as they have the ability to embed pictures (and emoticons ;)) etc I think that they're good to go.

    Like megatomic says, a lot of us who are on the RWOL trail and ultra forums would be instant customers if you set these up.

    With your great content and growing readership, advertisers will be lining up…

      Been enjoying irunfar for some time now and have benefitted from Bryon's largess in the past. Most recently represented at the Mystery Mountain Marathon, a great G.U.T.S. race in N. Georgia. Hoping that some day our paths might cross. Keep up the excellent work!

    I just wore my new iRunFar tech shirt in the Mountain Madness 50k (New Jersey Trail Series). A lot of people commented on how much they like your site. Great job!
