North Face Endurance Challenge D.C. Giveaway ...

One of the best things about writing this blog (other than having a daily journal of our lives) is the many opportunities it has afforded me, and at times, my family. I don't take these things for granted and I can not express my gratitude enough for all that I've experienced in the last four years.

Since starting this blog,

I have been able to run all over the country, with bloggers who have become great friends.
I have been treated like a princess.
I have been blessed to be chosen to run Hood to Coast with Nuun, not once, but twice.
We were featured in Runner's World.
We get to try TONS of great products that we might not otherwise.
And on occasion, I'm offered free race entries, for events like this ...


The North Face Endurance Challenge D.C. on June 2-3

Two days. 9 events, including distances from 5K to 50 miler, a marathon relay and two kid runs.

It looks awesome. And challenging. And completely Honey Badger.

Unfortunately, I can't run it.

But, my loss is your gain.

The awesome people at The North Face Endurance Challenge D.C. are allowing me to giveaway a FREE ENTRY to one reader, good for any race distance (based on availability).

You know you want to run this.
You know you are looking for a challenge.
You know your inner Honey Badger is ready to attack this course.

So, here's how to enter:

Visit The North Face Endurance Challenge D.C. website and choose a race distance. Then come back here and leave me a comment to let me know what race you would run and why.

That's it. Easy peasy. And if you want a bonus entry, share this on Twitter (be sure to include @racingwithbabes in your tweet) or Facebook and leave me a separate comment to let me know.

Good luck!

Official Rules:

  • Winner receives one (1) free race entry. Transportation and lodging are not provided.
  • One entry per comment.
  • Only entries submitted correctly will be counted. 
  • Contest will run from 4/25 until 11:59 p.m. on 4/30.

I would love, love, love to run this! And I would choose the half marathon because I've never run that far for a trail run and I'd like to kick that distance's behind.

Is this a sign? I've waffled over registering for this event for the past 5 months. If Random.org were to bless me with an entry, I'd leap at the chance to do my first 50K.

I'm a local DC girl and I would love to run the 1/2 marathon!

I've been debating about registering for one of these races as my first trail race. If I won I would enter the 10K b/c I'm coming off an injury and wouldn't want to push training too much!

Oh man oh man! I paced my brother (for seven really fun miles) at the fifty miler race in D.C. Last year! This is an awesome race, and the trails are soooo scenic! I would do the half marathon because that date works for me better. And it's gonna be a while before I run fifty miles. :)

It will definitely be the 5K! I am coming from an injury right now, so I don't know how my body would cope with more.

I've heard North Face is awesome!!! Good friend ran the marathon last year. Would LOVE to do the half. Awesome giveaway! THX

Christine Ashby said...

I choose the MARATHON!!!!! We can take a day trip to D.C. for me to run a free race!!!!

Why the marathon? Because I've never done one. And it would be cool. and then I would be cool. like a honey badger. ;)

Christine Ashby said...

I put it up on facebook!!!!

Lisa said...

Awesome opportunity since I live nearby! I would LOVE to run the 5k. I'm running a half the day before :) Don't want to be too much of a honey badger!

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

Crap! I'd want to do the 50 miler or 50k BUT I hopefully will have just done my first 100 AND that weekend would not work even for a FREE race. boohooo boohoo. I would have loved to do this race, free or not.

I'll help spread the word about the giveaway.

I would do the half! I need a good excuse for a random trip to DC, I went to college there and haven't been back recently! Got enough airmiles and friends to stay with that would make it totally doable!

Also just tweeted from @meggayman

Ran the 50K last year and had a blast. Would love to be able to give the 50M option a shot this yr!!

I really want my husband to run the half-marathon!! I think it would be *great* for him - especially since he has really bad knees and can't run on concrete/asphalt for too long.

I tweeted the giveaway! I already live in DC so I'm the perfect winner ;-)
