New rules for our 2014 Win a Trip to Boston Contest
We feel like we have such a flat and fast course, we’ve revamped our Boston Marathon contest to include everyone! Start planning to ramp up your training now because EVERYONE who qualifies to run the Boston Marathon in Modesto has a chance to win $500! One lucky male and one lucky female Boston qualifier will be randomly selected to receive $500 each that they can use toward their trip to Boston. Winners are on their own to make arrangements to run the Boston Marathon, but the cash is theirs to keep!
And we’ve made it even sweeter for our swift runners. If you qualify to run the Boston Marathon in Modesto, you can pick up a shirt or a license plate frame that reads “I BQ’d at the Modesto Marathon” at the awards booth after the race. Nothing like instant bragging rights! We hope you’ll wear it with pride and spread the word about our great course! (Read Clyde Behunin’s 2012 race report blog).
We will have a limited number of shirts printed, so first come, first served to get your preferred size. Or, choose a license plate frame for a sure fit!
Yes, it’s that simple! No signups … just run and we’ll take care of the rest.
