You may recall that I partnered with Back on My Feet (BoMF) for a giveaway to their 5 mile race back in February/March. Although I couldn't run the race myself, I knew people running who had an amazing time!
So when BoMF contacted me to do another giveaway for their biggest fundraising race, "in24 Philadelphia", I immediately said yes. They are giving me two race bibs, one for me and one for a reader!
Here's a little background on BoMF if you are not familiar:
Back on My Feet is a national non-profit started in Philadelphia to help empower those experiencing homelessness. The mission of BoMF is to use running to create self-sufficiency in the lives of those experiencing homelessness. Through training runs and races, the members gain confidence that transfers to the rest of their lives. Read more about their mission here.
in24 Philadelphia is BoMF's premier fundraiser and largest race, taking place on July 19-20, 2014. It includes several races run over 24 hours, including a 24 hour ultramarathon, a team relay, a Midnight Madness 8.4 miler, and a Finale 5k.
I am excited to run the Finale 5k, mostly because I've been having so much fun and success at 5k's this year!
The free race bib giveaway applies to either the Midnight Madness 8.4 Miler (Sunday, July 20 at 12 AM aka Saturday night) or the Finale 5k (Sunday, July 20 at 8 AM). The winner can choose either race after they are notified that they have won the contest. Click the links above to find out more about each race!
