November Forerunner 210 Giveaway

Over the last week or so I’ve been testing out the Forerunner 210 GPS running watch, which is brand spankin’ new and just released in time for the Holidays.  I’ve been so happy with it to date, that I’ve decided to give one away.  And while I don’t have a full In Depth Review put together quite yet, I’m happy to say this watch is just about what the majority of runners out there want.

And since I love the watch, and I love you guys…you get a free watch. :)

Like all giveaways to date, there are no restrictions on where the goods go to – so no matter where in the world you are, I’ll send to you (heck, with all my travel as of late, I might just simply drop it at your front door myself!).  I’m going about this like a random raffle drawing, except that you can get multiple ‘entries’.  Here’s the usual skinny on how:

One Entry: Simply place a comment below on this page, that’s it!  No lyrics to create, or poems to make.  No stories to tell, or anything complex.  Only comments on this page count (nope, comments from 2 years ago on a post about pasta don’t count).

Two Entries: Three different ways to double up here.  In addition to the comment below, just put a link on your blog (if you have one) to this contest page.  Or the second option is adding your Twitter account as a follower of DCRAINMAKERBLOG and retweeting the contest announcement.  By simply spreading the word, ya get an extra entry.  (Note: If you’re already a follower, simply re-tweet and you get credit!).  The final third option for non-Twitter/Blog peeps is to Share this on FaceBook instead. Surely you have FaceBook, right?  There’s a handy button below the post for doing it automagically.

Three Entries: Triple-time baby!  This is easy – just do all three of the above!  Twitter (or FaceBook), Blog/Site, and Comment.  Ya max out at three entries though…no quadruple dipping here!

See, that’s pretty painless, right?

Please let me know in your comment below how many entries you’ve qualified for if more than one, as it’s super-difficult for me to lineup a Twitter account named “AwesomeRunner28” to a blog named “RunnerGuy” to a comment listed from “RunningCowTippers!”, and I certainly want you to get all your entries.  I don’t need to know your account names, just how many entries.  Also, if ya have technical questions/thoughts/comments/diatribes/poems regarding the Forerunner 210 specifically, use that post page for those writings.

The winner will get a brand new Forerunner 210 (including HR strap).

The contest will run until Thursday November 18th, 2010 at 11:59PM Eastern Time when I’ll close the entry period.  Baring any major travel snafu’s, I’ll announce the winner the following day.

For those curious on how the giveaways work (like the part about how these are funded by me…), here’s the full deets.  Thanks all!

(Note: If you’re active duty US Military and deployed – simply shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get ya counted for all three.  Just like that…magic.  Thanks!)

  50. So don’t you love it? I got one a few months ago and I started to use it right away, but then found that it was too much to handle… looking at too much data during my run was sort of a deterrent. But then I started to train for my next marathon and I picked up the watch again – it’s been super helpful. I guess I just don’t like running with it while I’m not training for anything.
