It’s Back – Color Me Rad Richmond {Giveaway}

Remember the Color Me Rad 5K race I ran back in July? It’s coming back to Richmond this April! So if you missed your chance to get all colored up last year, you’re in luck…

The event details:

  • What: Richmond Color Me Rad 5K Race
  • When: Saturday, April 20, 2013 
  • Where: Snag-A-Job Pavilion, Innsbrook: 4901 Lake Brook Dr. Glen Allen, VA 23060
  • Cost: $40.00

I’m not sure I’ll be able to run this one since my knee still hasn’t fully healed from my Turkey Trot injury, but the race directors are allowing me to host a giveaway here on EBF for TWO free entries into the race!!

If you’re local to the Richmond area (or close enough to come visit for the weekend of April 20) and you would like to run the Color Me Rad 5K, just leave a comment below by Wednesday night at 11:59PM EST. I’ll randomly select and announce the winners this Thursday, February 14, 2013. <– Valentine’s Day + my birthday. 🙂

Thanks for entering everyone. The giveaway has ended. The winners are Abby and Ellen.
