Garmin Forerunner 310XT Giveaway

Can you believe it’s August already?  You know what that means?  Well, not a whole lot really…except that we’re now simply one month closer to the end of summer. :(

So in an effort to counteract that – I’m going to give something away!  And since I love the Forerunner 310XT – I decided I’ll give one of those away.  Here’s my in depth review if you aren’t familiar with the little orange device.


Like the last two giveaways, there are no restrictions on where the goods go to – so no matter where in the world you are, I’ll send to you. 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 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 FR310XT specifically, use that post page for those writings.

The winner will get a brand new Garmin Forerunner 310XT (without HR strap).

The contest will run until Thursday August 12th, 2010 at 11:59PM Eastern Time when I’ll close the entry period.  I’ll announce the winner the following day.

For those curious on how the giveaways work, here’s the deets.  Thanks all!

(Note: If you’re active duty military and deployed and are unable to complete the three entry methods above, simply shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get ya counted for all three.  Thanks!)

    Fantastic site! I must share that I have used this site; referred so many XC athletes/parents, track athletes/parents and just in general- friends.
    When my daughter qualified for Boston (2013)- we looked at your report to get the family ready to cheer- and the runner ready to run!
    When are youngest became a serious runner- and started training with the ‘big dogs’- we needed a watch. Your favorite- the Garmin 305– got it.

    It does need re-furbishing (we think)- or maybe a new 301XT? ANYWAYS– you are such a big help!
