Phew! That was a blur! You thought you were tired? Just imagine what my web servers feel like after yesterday. They’ll basically be doing the post-marathon day walk.
With the 2015 edition of the Annual DCR Giveaway Extravaganza now yesterday’s news, it’s time to get on to the most important part – the winners!
Thanks to everyone who entered in yesterday – it’s much appreciated! Once again you broke the record for the most hits here at the site in a single day – some 400K! Based on past historical trending, I’m convinced the only possible thing that could top that would be a combined Garmin/Strava sex tape.
This evening (post-nap) I went through and removed any accidental (or otherwise) duplicates of comments. I also ensured that any comments that got tangled up in the SPAM filters were carefully put back in place. You were allowed one comment per giveaway, though you could enter as many giveaways as you’d like. Thus everyone is all accounted for (once per giveaway)!
From there it was off to Random.org for the winners. Here’s the full tally of winners and their comments. All times US Eastern (it’s how I keep things straight).

Congrats winners!!! I’m ready for next year!
Typo in the 4PM giveaway lucky number 3310 vs 3130 comment. Unfortunatelly, I’m not one of those numbers!!! This was a great event. Thanks Ray and Clever Training
Thanks, Ray. Awesome effort putting it all together.
Congrats all, thanks Ray!
Thanks Ray and well done everyone! #maybenextyear
Thanks for all the hard work and a diverting day and evening of entering comments. Holding out hope next year for a dozen cupcakes and a pawtographed photo of Miss Lucy.
Congrats to all winners and thanks Ray for setting up the draws
Thanks Ray and Clever Training, extravaganza is brilliant, i hope i’ll win one day !
It was awesome, even waking up at 4 a.m. just to drop another doge inspired comment. Not so much for whoever happened to read those but hey…
link to youtube.com
Thanks for all your hard work Ray, next year I will try and really hack the RNG, but congrats to all the winners, enjoy the new toys!
Fun day, nonetheless
Let’s wait for the next year!
Thanks Ray !!! and a big congrats to the winners!!
did not win, don’t care although it would have been fun, like the site and your insights. love the comment of bryan alsdorf, cool to be winning that way! 🙂
You have the wrong winner for the 4pm give away. Your random number was 3310, but you picked 3130. You can just give it to me instead.
Fear not – just a typo in the post. I’ve got screenshots of all the Random.org winners and the actual winner was indeed 3130 (same as screenshot). Phew!
Thanks Ray!!! I like the idea of the combined Garmin/Strava sex tape.
Awesome as usual! Thanks Ray!!
Thanks to Ray & CT. Happy Days to the lucky winners
So bummed, maybe next year 🙂
Thanks for everything Ray, even without the giveaways I visit the site near daily looking for interesting new sports tech.
Once again, top notch, Ray. Congratulations to all the winners!
Congrats to the winners. That was a lot of fun. May be next year ;-(
That was FUN!!!! Thank You!!!
Thanks for helping me spend another day doing something a lot more fun than, you know, working. Ray and CT, y’all absolutely rock! Congrats to everyone who came away with a prize, although we’re all winners.

thx ray & CT for the giveaway!
Congrats everyone! & nice job running this again Ray.
Congratulations to the winners, and a big thank you Ray!
Very good DC. Thank you.
Congrats to the winners and as always, thanks, Ray and CT!
I can’t remember what comment I left, am I the same Dan? Looks like an extra night of excited anticipation to find out if I get an email!
Unfortunately, you would be a different Dan. This is Dan with an e-mail address starting with Dmi****@gmail
Darn, still fun playing.
Thanks as always Ray.
I think you’re wrong. I’m pretty sure his email started with danmail. 🙂
Nah, it was firstname.lastname@example.org
Clearly there are too many Dans in the world. Time to break out the old T800 and cull the herd. 🙂
Thanks, Ray. Am I the right Dan? If so, that is sweet! Otherwise, congrats to the other Dan!
Thanks for the nice Avg2015.
Congratulations and thanks!
Thanks again, Ray!!!

Gratz to the winners and great work with all you have done Ray!
Always fun to play the Raymaker Lottery. Congrats to all the winners. I am green with envy. Thanks Ray, class act as always.

Seriously, thanks for running this again.
Congrats to all winners, and cheers to DCR for running the comp
congrats to the winners, thanks to Ray and CT
Thanks for organizing this! I’m afraid something has gone wrong as I didn’t win anything 🙂
Thanks for all you do!
Nice work Ray. Thanks for the amazing work… One of these comps will come through… Although things have changed a lot in the last few years since I started following the blog! You talked me into a 310xt the day you released it’s review. And I’ve been hooked ever since!
As an ultra runner I’m loving my ambit 3! Although the android app needs some work!
And congrats to all the winners…
Thanks so much Ray for running this! It was real fun!
Haven’t clicked on the “post-marathon day walk” link before: really funny.
A couple more things I forgot in previous comment:
– thanks to Clever Training too, of course. Speaking of which… any news for DCR’s site supporters wannabe spread across Europe?
– Random.org, I know where you live!! 🙂
Than next year!!! 🙂
Thank you for your detailed reviews. They are very helpful!
Thanks for setting this up, gutted that I didn’t get lucky, but well done to those that did, I’m extremely envious.
Also thanks for removing the accidental dupe entries, I know I was guilty of this at least once due to strange mobile/local wifi phone issues. Its really appreciated you don’t just knock them all out, so thanks
That was a different experience! Great job Ray!
Thanks Ray for this giveaway, hope to be winner next time.
it was fun! tnx DC
Congrats to all the winners,
I’m already looking forward to next one. It is a day of fun.
Every one else is telling that I’m crazy to get up every 2 hours into the night, but it is worth the chance.
Congratulations to the winners!
Well done Ray thanks for running this. Maybe next year I will get lucky.
Well done to all the winners.
Well done, Ray, thanks again.
Congrats to all winners!
Had a great time entering all the fun free giveaways. Makes for an exciting day at work, no productivity but exciting, even if I didn’t win ?
Haha funny enough to see someone winning by replying a dutch expression. Roughly translated ‘If You Don’t Try You Will Never win’. So I’m keeping at that ‘niet geschoten is altijd mis’. It’s always an exciting events and perhaps next year I’ll be more lucky. Thanks for the effort Ray!
Despite not winning anything thank you so much Ray for doing that
Thanks Ray for hosting a fantastic giveaway! Congrats to all the winners. I especially like Bryan’s winning comment.
This was nuts! Your site traffic much have been absolutely crazy.
Thanks Ray for organizing and thanks CT for the generosity.
is it too late to join the now?
Thanks!! I won 2 days dreaming it was mine 😉
Thank you for even giving us all a change and all the people that makes this possible. Highly appreciated.
Foiled again by that dreaded Random.org number generator. There’s GOT to be some way I can hack system and ensure that I can win next year!
meh heh heh.
Great work, as always.
Thanks Ray for the Extravaganza! Congratulations to the Winners!
Was a great event, as always
Even though I didn’t win and was a zombie for the next couple of days, I enjoyed the extravaganza. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait for your Apple iWatch review.
I would have won, too, if it wasn’t for those meddling kids!!! (Probably a too obscure Scooby Doo reference for you, young Ray)
I didn’t win, but still had a ton of fun! Maybe next year…
My girl friend thinks I’m nuts, but I had a great time, and I spent a bit of time re reading reviews and considering buying products that ordinarily I would not. So maybe Ray is crazy like a fox.
Thanks again! Cool to see so much activity!
With my Garmin stolen the other week I though I would wait to see if I had won one from you… Oh dear, best I start to look at buying a new one, I just can’t use the old 205 for ever…
Great job Ray, site is great -literally the bible on all sports gadgets. Hoping for better luck next year. Congrats to all the lucky winners!
Thanks again Ray for the amazing giveaway, it is always a fun day and congrats to all the winners.
One of these days i’ll win something.
Congrats to all!
Was it me that was lucky enough to win the GoPro? Can’t remember my comment. But my competitive side really wants it to be me.
Thanks to DCRainmaker and Clever training for the giveaways. As everyone says they are so much fun.
I’ll win at Euromillion and buy Clever Training !
congrats to the happy few !!!
Congrats to the winners and thx Ray for this 🙂
Always fun to try.
Congrats to the winners
Thanks for doing this Ray. I would have loved to win but the competition was tough. I thought that if I left the comment ‘pick me, random number generator, pick me!’ that it would listen….guess not.
Thanks for putting this on again!
