GIVEAWAY: Skirt Sports 13er/10K/5K Race Entry

As a Skirt Sports Ambassador Captain, I have the exciting privilege to giveaway an entry into the Skirt Sports 13er (10K & 5K options available as well if you're not quite up to 13.1)!! They have both a virtual option and a local race in Boulder on June 14th (virtual race can be ran anytime from 13th-16th) so anyone can enter, no matter where you live!

Here's some basic facts about the giveaway:


AND an awesome Finisher's Skirt - forgot to add that in!

So...the big question you're probably asking: what's so exciting about this race?

Several things. For starters the awesome new name they have for Half Marathon's: The 13er! Because it's not "half" of anything. Even as someone who has ran many full marathons, I can agree with this. Racing shorter distances definitely does not make them any easier - generally you're running it faster and figuring out how to pace yourself is always tricky business (I actually think the 5K is one of the absolute hardest distances to truly race because of this). 13 miles is a huge accomplishment. I still remember signing up for my first half marathon - it was a bigger deal to me than signing up for my first full because at the time I was still a newbie runner and had only ever ran 6 miles (and had only ran 6 miles once or twice). 13 was still unfathomable to me!! Crossing that finish line of my first half marathon was the defining moment for me when I started to truly feel like an actual "runner"! So I am so glad Skirt Sports understands that and is celebrating the distance for what it is. No more of those "I'm ONLY doing the Half" comments!

The second reason this race is pure awesomeness is because not only do you get a race bib, finisher's skirt (shown below), and sponsor swag, BUT you also get a Skirt Sports gift certificate! Included in the race entry is a $50 gift certificate (or you can upgrade to more $$$ if you want!) to spend on any Skirt Sports gear you'd like (perfect for trying out your first skirt if you've never had one yet, or stalking up on more if you already have several like me!!!).


This awesome finisher's Skirt is also included with your entry!
(Winner will need to register by May 24th to get the logo printed, otherwise is will be blank)

Now, unfortunately, despite my namesake, I'm sad to say that I will be out of town the weekend of the race for both family and work trips, so I will actually be doing the Virtual Option - but I look forward to sharing all about it after I finish (in fact, I'm hoping I can work it out to run it in Chicago on the Lakefront Trail!!!). If you do win and you live in Colorado though - definitely sign up for the local race - it's run in Louisville/Boulder and so will have the gorgeous Flatirons as your background, plus you'll get to meet all of the awesome Skirt Sports folks (and spend that gift certificate - if you haven't already!).

So without further ado, enter below to win (please also include an email address in the comments below as well - I want to make sure I can contact you if you win)!!! Entries are accepted until midnight MST on May 18th, and I will announce the winner on my birthday, next Tuesday, May 19th!

(Also, please note the following if you decide to do any of the instagram entries: Rafflecopter will not let me put underscores in my instagram name - so if you're looking me up on instagram, I am @Kate_Runs_Colorado)
