13.1 Chicago [Half Marathon] Giveaway

Here is another opportunity to win a free entry into 13.1 Chicago on June. And as a BONUS, if you win, you get to run the race with a lot of other Chicago Running Bloggers! We'll have to do a meet-up! (You do not have to be a blogger to enter this giveaway.)

You can read all about this year's race on their web site, but the basics:

Chicago 13.1 Marathon
Saturday, June 9, 2012
Start Location: South Shore Cultural Center
Start Time: 7:00 AM

Course Map: Download Course Map

This race is WALKER FRIENDLY. The course will remain open for 3 hours and 30 minutes (16 minute/mile pace).

You can also read the experiences of other bloggers at last year's race (which wasn't typical - the race was cut short due to heat):

Leave a comment listing all the things you did. No need to list in separate comments. Each thing you do will earn you one entry into the drawing. Using, one winner will be selected on Tuesday, April 10 (one week from today).

Unfortunately, if you are already registered for this race, you cannot win and be reimbursed. (I asked, as I was already registered, and part of this offer was a free entry for the blogger + a reader.) In the interest of full disclosure, I am not being compensated monetarily for doing this giveaway, but I was promised access to the VIP tent on race day, whatever that includes.
