It’s less than a week to the ING New York City Marathon, the famous run across the city’s five boroughs, where world-class professional athletes compete for $600,000 in prize money before 2 million cheering fans. But whether you’re one of the athletes that will be running the 26.2 miles on Sunday, November 6 (like our contributor Hailey Eber) or are an avid runner who’s training for your next marathon, you’ll enjoy this special prize from Adidas and Blisstree: one lucky fan of Blisstree on Facebook will win one pair of women’s Adidas adiZero™ Adios running shoes, worth $110, and a NYC marathon graphic tee. The Adios is the world’s fastest marathon shoe in the world, and was worn by Haile Gebrselassie when he set the marathon world record in 2:03:59 in Berlin, and by the 2011 Boston Marathon winners.
This year, Adidas is using the NYC Marathon season to pay tribute to marathon great — and pretty amazing woman — Grete Waitz. The company has a line of shoes inspired by the Norwegian silver medalist and nine-time champion of the NYC Marathon with 100% of the profits going to Grete’s AKTIV Against Cancer foundation. You can pick up a pair at Adidas’ marathon booth and store in Soho in New York this weekend.
If you can’t make it to New York to buy a pair of your own, then you can win this pair of Adios shoes from Adidas instead! Entering to win this inspiring and fun prize pack is easy. You just need to be a fan of Blisstree on Facebook to enter. Already a fan? Follow this link to enter to win. If you’re not a fan, enter here, too. You’ll have until 5 p.m. EDT on Sunday, November 6 to enter to win. You must be at least 18 and a resident of the US to win. (Full terms and conditions here).
Plus, you’ll also get bonus giveaway entries by getting your friends to “Like” Blisstree on Facebook, too. Liking the Adidas Facebook page will also give you extra entries – yet another way to win these light-weight shoes.
