in Giveaway Thursday!,News,Notes from the Station

It is a bright and beautiful day here in Burlington, Vermont!  I dare say, spring may actually be in the air. Abundant sunshine puts me in the mood to give stuff away, so we’re going to do a lot of that today.

First off, I’m happy to announce the winner of our Premium Package GiveawayMary Gubala is our winner. Mary tells me that she has been looking forward to KBVCM for years.  In addition to a comped KBVCM entry fee and two nights lodging and pasta dinner for two at Champlain College’s Lakeview Hall, Mary will receive a $50 KeyBank Possibility Card, a $50 RunVermont/KBVCM Merchandise credit, and Waterfront VIP Tent access for two.

Second, did you know that our good friends at lululemon athletica Burlington Showroom are offering a FREE post-race yoga class to participants in this weekend’s Half Unplugged? Please join us at 10am on Sunday, April 10 at One Main Street, Suite 101 in On’Track’s Fresco Studio for the class.  The class is taught by Erika Nestor.

Not able to join us Sunday?  Erika demonstrates stretches and yoga poses every runner can benefit from in the video below.

And finally, this week’s GIVEAWAY

Today you have the opportunity to win a GoLite HydroClutch Water Bottle AND a $15 RunVermont Store credit.

The HydroClutch is a water bottle, gel pack, keys and your ID holder all in one. Our Youth Director, Joy, is a huge fan of this product.  If you like to run with your own water, but don’t love the fit, feel or price of a hydration systems worn on your waist or back, the HydroClutch might be perfect for you.

We have a lot of great merchandise planned for this year’s Marathon and we’ll plan to preview a lot of here on the blog.  You can spend your $15 on items already listed in the store, or wait and use it at the Sport & Fitness EXPO on May 27 and 28, 2011!

To Enter:

Take a  guess as to which one of our awesome pace team leaders has been on a Wheatie’s Box!  We’ll choose the winner from all the correct entries.

Remember, the contest closes Sunday, April 10 at midnight.  I’ll draw and announce one winner on Monday, April 11.

The rules/fine print:
* We use to select all winners…at random, from all the comments posted.
* There is no limit on the number of times a single person can win a prize.
* We ask that if you’re local, you pick up your prize.  If not, we’ll mail it (US and Canada only.)
* We contact all winners via email each Monday; you have one week to reply to arrange pick-up/mailing of your prize.  If we haven’t heard from you within one week, we reserve the right to re-list the prize or choose another winner.
* Have some product you’d like to get in the hands of a great group of runners?  Contact Leandre.
