Mercy Health Glass City Marathon Free Race Entry Giveaway

With 2017 just weeks away it is time to look ahead and make plans for your vacations, family functions, shenanigans, tea parties, and races. My first vacation of 2017 is extremely early in the month, I don’t have my shenanigans or tea parties planned out, but my race schedule is solid.


I officially start training with Dave’s Marathon In Training Group on Tuesday, January 3. I am pretty sure I am going to be registering for the Owens Corning Half Marathon. After two failed full’s I think I’ll stick to the half distance for a year and try a third stab at a full in the near future. I finished the first but I inured my knee during the race, I had to DNF the second because of my heart, I hope my third attempt in the future will work out.

As the head Ambassador for the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon I get to spread holiday cheer by giving away TWO free race entries. My great team of Ambassadors have all given away their free race entries and now this is your final chance to win! How fantastic would your holiday be if you received an entry to the race you were already planning on running on Sunday, April 23, 2017?

If you want to run the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon, Owens Corning Half Marathon or the Medical Mutual Glass City 5k, then you have a chance to win a free entry! The giveaway runs from 12:01 a.m. on Monday, December 12 through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, December 18. Each registrant has the opportunity to submit up to six entries.

Each form of entry WILL be validated if selected. If you say you followed on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or posted a blog comment, then please do so. If I draw your name for the free entry and you have not fulfilled the requirement your entry will be disqualified.
