UPDATE: The contest is now closed but you can still use the promo code “pw15” for 15% off your registration fee FOR ANY 2017 RACE DISTANCE!
To those of you who are able to run a marathon while pregnant, GO YOU. I, on the other hand, am not made of the same super-human genes. So when the Utah Valley Marathon reached out to me about running their 2017 race (which also happens to be their 10 year anniversary), I had to ask for a raincheck.
However, I would be lying if I said I didn’t have some FOMO. I’ve never run this race but it’s been on my radar for a while. Given the fact that there’s currently a tiny human taking up residence inside of me, the race organizers were kind enough to offer me two free race entries to giveaway on the blog. I’m not usually one for giveaways, but two completely FREE race entries sounded like a pretty sweet deal. On the fence? Here’s what you need to know about the Utah Valley Marathon:
WHEN: June 10, 2017. It’s a Saturday race, which I love as it makes celebrating and travel that much easier.
WHERE: The course begins in Wallsburg, Utah, running into Provo Canyon.
COURSE DETAILS: I’ve never run it so I can’t speak from experience, but it’s heralded as “flat and fast.” But even better than flat and fast is that it’s net-downhill. Hello, BQ!
SCHWAG ME: Given it’s their anniversary year, they’ve upped their schwag game and will feature race jackets instead of t-shirts.
TELL ME ABOUT THE DOLLA-DOLLA-BILLS: If you enter the giveaway, it could be free! If you don’t win, use the code “pw15” for 15% off your registration fee FOR ANY RACE DISTANCE! That includes the marathon, half, 10K, you name it.
HOW DO I ENTER: Leave a comment in the comments section below saying why you’d like to win. The contest will close at 6 p.m. PST on Sunday, January 29, 2017. I’ll announce the winner on the morning of Monday, January 30, 2017. And if you don’t win, don’t fret — the discount code above is still valid until race registration closes.
And that’s it! I hope whoever wins runs a mile for me as I wish I could be there with them. Good luck and happy running!
