Last year I gave away two entries (to the race of their choice) to two of my readers. I am going to do the same giveaway again! The Glass City Marathon was my very first (and so far my only) marathon and the Owens Corning Half Marathon was my first half marathon and the second race I ever ran in. I love this race weekend for so many reasons. One being that it is essentially in my backyard. I know that this doesn’t apply to people not in NW Ohio, but it is a Boston qualifier with a flat, fast course that is sure to please…even those who aren’t trying to BQ. PLUS, there are corrals at the start line, pacing teams, chip timing, finishers book (sent after the race), a short sleeve tech shirt, you earn an amazing race medal, and as a tribute to Toledo, the Glass City, a glass finishers mug. There is also a post-race party to end all post-race parties you’ve ever been to. Did I mention the free massages for runners after the race? There may be beer there as well…
I am leading an amazing team of Ambassadors again this year to help spread the word about the Glass City Marathon race weekend.
The two free entries that I am giving away are good for the Glass City Marathon, Owens Corning Half Marathon and the 5k.
Each of these races will require a training plan that you need to map out. Most marathon training plans suggest you train for 18 weeks, a half marathon training plan is typically around 12 weeks, and a lot of 5k plans can be around 8 weeks long. As of today, the race weekend is only 17+ weeks away. Still time to train your butt off for any of the races. But remember to think if you actually have the time to train for the race you want to run. That is something that is often overlooked. So plan your race, enter the giveaway and start training!
If you don’t win a race entry, or you don’t want to wait to see if you win, you can register for any of the races here.
I am not buying you a race entry, the amazing people who put together this race weekend are allowing me to sneak you in for free due to my status as a Glass City Marathon ambassador.
