THREE Free Race Entries and Swag Bags!
Last year I talked my husband into running the
I-35 Challenge with me! That's two halfs in
just one weekend!
As many of you know, I am a blogger for the IMT Des Moines Marathon. I am so pumped to announce that just like the last few years, the wonderful race organizer, Chris Burch, has agreed to let me giveaway several race entries (full, half, 5 mile or 5K- your choice!) to the IMT DMM races again this year!
Yes you read that correctly- Over the next few weeks I will be giving away THREE RACE ENTRIES and TWO SWAG BAGS! The swag bags are great too, containing a variety of items pending on which package you win, including 13.1 or 26.2 magnets, an IMTDMM custom Camelbak, an IMT DMM running journal, and training gear!
This year the races are on October 19-20, 2019 so there is plenty of time to start training for any of the distances! You still have 5 months, so you can literally still train for any distance your heart desires.
Ya'll, that is 5 prizes- FIVE AWESOME PRIZES! How do you get in on this action?!
Please see the Rafflecopter above and enter daily! The giveaway starts Tuesday June 11th but hurry and come back often as the giveaway two weeks after that point on Tuesday June 25th. Most of you should be fine, but if you have trouble seeing the Rafflecopter giveaway above from a mobile device, try 1.) scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on "View Web Version" or, 2.) logging in from a PC or a non-mobile device.
This giveaway is particularly special to me because the IMTDMM was my very first marathon in 2014. This year marks five years since my first marathon, and I am planning to run the full again this year to celebrate. Over the years I have also ran the I-35 Challenge (two halfs) in 2015, the half in 2016, the full again in 2017, the I-35 Challenge (two halfs) again last year.
I am really excited to offer these prizes and hopefully get to meet some of you on the start or finish line.
I absolutely love the IMT DMM races. As I said, I have run both the fulls and the halfs, and all times have been an amazing for me. I have blogged about some of my race experiences (see my archives on the left side of this page) and am excited to keep blogging about my training for my 2019 experience. Last year I posted several articles on the IMTDMM official blog that will help you understand why I love this race so much. Not only is it in my home state of Iowa so I always have family and friends to cheer me on as I run it, but last year my brother and husband both ran the races with me. The medals, the course, the option of the I-35 Challenge (two races in one weekend), the amazing food vendors, but more than anything the IMTDMM is the most supportive race I have ever run. So many incredible volunteers and spectators cheer on complete strangers as they run the course. The race director does an excellent job of making sure the whole package comes together wonderfully.

Okay, so how do you enter to win these free race entries and swag bags? It is so easy! On the top of this website there is a Rafflecopter. (Again, most of you should be fine, but if you have trouble seeing the Rafflecopter giveaway above from a mobile device, try 1.) scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on "View Web Version" or, 2.) try logging in from a PC or a non-mobile device.) You simply complete a few easy tasks of your choice, such as visit the IMTDMM Facebook page, 'Like" us both and Tweet about the giveaway, as well as a few other options, and you're entered! Some of the entry options you can even complete daily, meaning that you can get even more entries into the drawing EVERY SINGLE DAY!
When the drawing ends, Rafflecopter will randomly draw winners from the entries and then I will personally notify winners via email and tell them how they can collect their prizes. The Rafflecopter will run for two weeks and the only stipulation for winners is that they must use the free race entry themselves (no gifting it to someone else). Remember you can decide what race distance you want to enter (full, half, 5 mile or 5K). The only race this won't work for is the 5-mile Combo (as that is technically two races combined). And that's it!
Once again the giveaway ends June 25th and you can enter daily!
On your mark, get set, go!
I will be posting more articles now the training season is underway. Come back here to MamaGottaRun or to the IMT DMM website often for more articles from me, other bloggers and important updates and information about these wonderful races!
