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!)

    Garmin Forerunner, what a great Birthday Present that would be 🙂

  265. Ray, great blog. I enjoy reading it especially the in depth reviews.

    Put me down for 3 entries (comment, Facebook, Twitter).

    Looks like the 210 is a great unit. Does it calculate calories even for workouts when you do not make any progress – e.g. spin bike or gym bike when you travel?

  266. TrichaseTri – Would love to win the watch. Please draw my name.

  267. I have been reading through your blogs for a while now, currently i have an inexpensive HR monitor by Timex, and my buddy has a Garmin, I like how it shows your splits in the mile. I also am spreading the word on my facebook too. Thanks for the offer!

  268. TrichaseTri – I posted this to my facebook, and I posted here for two entries total.

  269. awesome. i’ll take one.

  346. 2 Entries for me! Facebook and post, looks like a cool watch.

  347. Sweet! I wanted to ask a question anyway and I also get entered into a drawing!

    Onto my question – I have an Edge 305 and FR 310XT and didn’t think much about the calorie calculations until I read the specs on the 800. What are the differences (I think the 800 uses heart rate based, maybe similar to Polar) and if the 800 is more accurate, will Garmin ever update the other models?

    Oh – any news on the Tacx VR trainer? I’m considering a purchase this winter.

    Thanks for all of the info.

  348. Doug

My husband wears it for his runs and I am sticking with my 305 that he bought for me just a few weeks before I won the 110.
