Jacksonville Challenge Giveaway

As you may know, I believe exercise should be both enjoyable and challenging. Working out should be something you look forward to doing, which is why I constantly vary my routine by trying new classes, facilities and workouts.

Given this philosophy, I'm excited to announce a giveaway on HGG that truly makes fitness fun. Keep reading for a chance to win two registrations to the event described below.

Jacksonville Challenge is an urban adventure race that will take place Sunday, October 6 in Jacksonville, Florida. Teams of two or more persons will compete with one another by racing around the city to "solve tricky clues, strategize the best route and explore undiscovered corners of the city," according to the event website.

In other words, you'll need both your legs and your brain to compete with other teams for cash prizes during this fun-filled 5K.

After spending the afternoon with friends and family, you'll enjoy food and drink specials, music, a  costume contest and an awards ceremony. The top 25 teams will qualify for the $5,000 National Championship race that will take place in November in Las Vegas. The top five teams will win free entry to this national event.

I cannot attend the Jacksonville Challenge due to a prior school commitment. However, the event organizers would like to give away two registrations to the event (a.k.a. one for the winner and one for his or her friend!)

To enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post that tells me how you make fitness fun. Also include your email address in the comment so I can contact you if you are the winner.
 
You must be 18 years of age or older and a United States resident to enter this giveaway. Also, please leave only one comment. Duplicate comments will be deleted and will disqualify you from winning the prize.

Please add your comment to this post by 11:59 p.m. EST Monday, September 30. I will choose the winner using a random number generator following the deadline. I will email the winner and announce his or her name in a new post Tuesday, October 1. The winner must respond to my email by 11:59 p.m. EST Wednesday, October 2 in order to receive two registration codes. Otherwise, a new winner will be selected and contacted.

Good luck! I'm already jealous of the winner who will enjoy this event without me. ;)

  1. This looks like a way to start making fitness fun. I was just diagnosed with high blood pressure. Not a part of being 50 that I was looking forward too. So now it is time to get off my butt and get moving. This looks like a fun way to start and a fun way for the husband and I to connect for a few hours away from home.
