The Naked Foot 5K Early Registration Giveaway!

Hey folks, the Naked Foot 5K is back!  And this year it's bigger and better than ever.  The race has expanded to include events in St. Augustine, Santa Barbara, D.C., Seattle, Minneapolis, Grand Rapids, Denver, Austin, Nashville, and Salt Lake City. 

We've also got a new title sponsor: Altra Zero Drop Footwear, makers of the uber-awesome Instinct, Adam, and Lone Peak, and one of the hottest new minimalist footwear companies in town.  Yes...we have a footwear sponsor for a barefoot race.  People wear shoes sometimes.  Get over it.

Anyway, this year I'll again be the race director of the Minneapolis event.  We'll be rocking and rolling in MN on July 26th, 2012 in the early evening.  If you recall last years race (and if you don't, here's a recap), we had a huge and rowdy crowd of around 90 people.  I'm looking to make the event even bigger this year.

To do that, I'm doing the only style of marketing I know how to do: bribery.  Registration will open up for most of the Naked Foot races today on Active.com.  If you folks register for a Naked Foot race by April 16, 2012, you'll be entered into a drawing to win a FREE PAIR OF ALTRA ZERO DROP SHOES OF YOUR CHOICE!!  Maybe even one of the super secret new models like the Samson (if you ask nicely). 

WOO WOOOOOOOOOOO!!  How swagtastic!

To enter my contest, just leave a comment at the end of this post letting me know what race you registered  to run (or if registration is not open yet, which one you intend to register for).  Folks that register for the Minneapolis race will receive an additional entry into the drawing!  Gotta support my home town race.  But to level the playing field, folks who register for a different race can receive an additional entry by sharing this post on their facebook, twitter, Google+, dailymile, blog, pinterest, or whatever other social media site you use.  Just provide a link showing me where you did it so I can verify.

Register for this great race series and come hang out with a bunch of barefooters!  Cheers and happy long weekend to all!
