SF Bay Area runners and Brazen aficionados!
No rest for the wicked and no break for the Brazen – the 2015 race season is upon us! RaceRaves is calling on all members of the Brazen family to share their race experiences. And with this call to arms (or legs) comes an added incentive: every event (including at least one Brazen race) reviewed on RaceRaves between January 8 and January 22, 2015 will double as an entry into a random drawing to win one of the following prizes:
Rave prize (1):
- “Early bird” entry to the 2015 Brazen event of your choice
- One pair of shoes (up to a $120 value) from Road Runner Sports
Second prize (1): Two $50 vouchers for sports apparel items from Road Runner Sports
Third prize (1): Your choice of a one-year subscription to Trail Runner magazine or Runner’s World magazine, or a two-year subscription to Running Times magazine (approximate retail value $22)
All winners will also receive a RaceRaves tech tee. And everyone who participates will receive, at the end of the promotion, a coupon by email for 10% off a future purchase at any Bay Area Road Runner Sports location (Berkeley, Concord, San Carlos and Campbell).
Here’s how it works: To qualify for the promotion, members must submit a review (= one entry) for a Brazen Racing event on RaceRaves.com between Thursday, Jan 8, 2015 and 11:59pm PDT on Thursday, Jan 22, 2015. Each review for a timed race – Brazen or otherwise – submitted by a qualifying member within this same timeframe will then serve as one (1) entry for the drawing. On Jan 23, 2015, RaceRaves will select the three prize winners by random drawing, and winners will be notified by email. If a winner fails to respond and claim their prize by 11:59pm on Jan 25, 2015, then another winner will be randomly chosen and will secure all the glory and spoils therein.
Every eligible race review will count as an entry – good, bad or indifferent. For other runners looking to discover new races and for race directors looking to improve their events, the most important elements of any review are fairness and honesty. For example, “I ran this race with a stress fracture and appendicitis, worst race EVER” would register low on the “fair review” scale.
The not-so-fine print: Road Runner Sports prize vouchers are redeemable exclusively at the four Bay Area locations listed above. This giveaway is not sponsored by Brazen Racing, Big Stone Publishing or Rodale Inc., and unfortunately for us no money changed hands under the table. Naturally your odds of winning depend on the number of submitted reviews.
Please email us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for sharing your race experiences on RaceRaves. After all, good things come to those who rate!
