Have you ever wanted to race in the historic Lake District of the UK, the true home of fell running? How about an all-expense-paid trip for FREE?!? Well, you are in luck...
My shoe sponsor, inov-8, has recently launched the GET A GRIP COMPETITION where seven lucky winners will get a 5-day trip to the UK to race the 9-mile Skiddaw Fell Race. And yes, US runners are eligible! Just fill out this form and share your favorite trail running experience, and you are entered to win to be a part of Team Get A Grip for the June 30th-July 4th extravaganza.
The steep and challenging Lake District is where inov-8 was born in 2003, and quickly became a favorite brand for tackling the unique rocks, trails, and mud of the area. Since you are in inov-8's backyard, you can expect far more than a race entry - you'll get a tour of the company, a chance to run with the international inov-8 team, hob-knobbing with plenty of record-setting locals, and probably plenty of free gear and beer too. It sounds like an amazing experience!
So what are you waiting for? GO FOR IT!!!
I will be the first to tell you how jealous I am. ;-)
