HOW IT WORKS: To qualify for and be automatically entered in our random drawing, you must submit your review (= one drawing entry) for the VCU Health Richmond Marathon, CarMax Richmond Half or Allianz Partners 8K between Saturday, November 13, 2021 and 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, November 28, 2021. Every review for a timed race submitted by a qualifying member and official finisher will then count as one (1) additional entry into the drawing. To ensure relevance, only reviews for races run since November 30, 2018 are eligible for the drawing. A minimum of four unique reviewers must qualify for the drawing within the specified time frame for the free entry to be awarded.
On or around Nov 29, 2021, RaceRaves will randomly select the prize winners and notify them by email. If a winner fails to respond and claim their prize within a week of being emailed, then another winner will be randomly chosen and secure all the glory and spoils therein. In the event the winner is already registered for the 2022 event, their registration fee will not be refunded nor can they defer to the following year; however, their free entry can be transferred to a friend. 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. Free shipping of prize merchandise applies to addresses in the U.S.; addresses outside the U.S. will be charged the cost of USPS Air Mail.
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.
