Reduce Reuse RecycleWe just spent three hours drawing the winners of this year’s iRunFar ReUseAPalooza. In all there were an amazing 40 different winners! Congrats to all of them and thanks to everyone who entered. If you’ve won, please contact us with your name, your mailing address, and the prize(s) you won.

Thanks again to Atayne for providing the organic cotton tees. In case you missed it, we chose Earth Week to announce that the iRunFar Store will now be carrying environmentally-responsible shirts with the iRunFar logo.

As we did when we announced the contest, we’ll again encourage you to pass along your no longer used (or rarely used) trail running gear to someone else who can use it. You’ll be helping someone out, decluttering your closet (and life), and reducing the resources needed to produce product the recipient would have otherwise purchased.

[Update: We gave away a few extra shirts and a flashdrive in this post, but they’ve all been claimed.]
