Excuses: We’ve all got them. But now’s the time to charge past them. Is it raining outside? Get out there. You’ve had a long week? Make it yours. It’s time to #owntherun. We realize we can’t just tell you to get out there without offering a bit of help and some incentive. From October 11th - November 8th, the GORE-TEX brand is hosting an #owntherun contest open to runners of all levels. We simply ask that you answer one important question: What will you overcome to #owntherun? Each week, we’ll be giving away a pair of Asics, Saucony, or Brooks running shoes with GORE-TEX liner. And, at the end, one grand prize winner will run away with head-to-toe gear including:
- Running shoes with GORE-TEX liner
- A GORE-TEX jacket
- Running shorts
- Running pants
- And more!
