HOW IT WORKS: To qualify for and be automatically entered into our random drawing, submit your review (= one entry) for the Golden Gate Half Marathon or 5K between Sunday, November 6, 2016 and 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, November 20, 2016. Every review for a timed race submitted by a qualifying member will then count as one (1) additional entry into the drawing.

On November 21, 2016, 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 November 27, 2016, then another winner will be randomly chosen and secure all the glory and spoils therein. Previous 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.
