HOW IT WORKS: To qualify for and be automatically entered into our random drawing, you must submit your review (= one drawing entry) for any Carmel Marathon Weekend event (marathon, marathon relay, half marathon, 8K, 5K) between Saturday, March 31, 2018 and 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, April 15, 2018. Every review for a timed race submitted by a qualifying member counts as one (1) additional entry into the drawing. To ensure relevance, only reviews for races run since April 30, 2015 are eligible for the drawing.

On April 16, 2018, RaceRaves will randomly select the prize winners and notify them by email. If a winner fails to respond and claim their prize by 11:59pm on April 29, 2018, then another winner will be randomly chosen and secure all the glory and spoils therein. Previous RaceRaves giveaway winners are not eligible again for a period of one hundred eighty (180) days from the closing date of their winning giveaway period.

Every eligible race review counts as an entry – positive, negative or indifferent. For other runners looking to discover new races and for race directors looking to improve their events, the most important elements of any review are fairness and honesty. Please keep in mind, the more thoughtful & detailed your review, the more helpful it will be to other runners. Naturally your odds of winning depend on the number of entries received.
