Garmin FR10 Quadruple Giveaway Winners!


Over 1,700 of you entered the FR10 giveaway (including the e-mail Active Duty entrants), which only was open over this past weekend.  Pretty crazy numbers!  I had asked each entrant to simply list their first race of the 2013 season.

As you remember, I was giving away four watches in two sets, to two different winners.  The winners would be selected randomly.  I went over to my favorite pal – – and plopped in the total numbers (1,703) to draw the first winner:


Number 1,235, come on down!


Congrats Jared!  And good luck on those 26.2 miles!

Next up, the next number to be called!


Woot, an international winner!


Congrats Romeu!  Interestingly, splitting the winners between US and International again by random chance keeps the near-perfect balance of all past giveaway winners split evenly between the two categories.

Of course, I’d also like to thank Clever Training for supporting this giveaway.

Even if you didn’t win, you can pickup the Garmin FR10 from them (as well as anything else) and you support the site.  Plus, all DC Rainmaker readers get an exclusive 10% off everything they sell (basically every sports tech company) using coupon code DCR10BTF.  Thanks for supporting the site, and good luck to everyone on the events planned for next year!

    Congrats Jared and Romeu! Thanks again Ray and Clever Training – love your work!

  3. Wow, thank you so much! I have been participating in these giveaways for some time now, glad I got this one. I’m hoping this watch can help me introduce some running in my cycling-only regime.

    Keep up the excellent work Ray!

    Funny, you call Romeu an international winner, while Portugal is a lot closer to you nowadays :D

    Wanted to let you know of my great experience with Clever Training. I finally broke down and bought the Garmin 910 heading into Ironman Arizona. In my haste, I forgot to add the DCR10BTF discount code and paid full price. Once I realized my mistake, I sent a email, and within the hour, received a response from them that they would credit my card for the discount – which they did.

    Thanks again for all you do. I’ll continue to use them for future purchases, such as my replacement 910, as the previous version currently rests at the bottom of Tempe Town Lake.

  9. Congrats to your winners.
