Our friends at Saucony are giving away another trip to the Nantucket Half Marathon! If you participated in 2015 (check out last year's winners here), you'll notice we're doing things a little differently this year. We still want to hear how you Find Your Strong everyday (in fact, we want you to post your stories here so that others can be inspired!), but we want you to get involved and help us spread the word. Through the month of July, earn points by spreading inspiration through social media and attending Charm City Run events. The participant with the most points at the end of the month will win the free trip for 2 to the Nantucket Half Marathon in October.

How to earn points:

1. Earn 5 points just for registering here. (You must register to be eligible for this contest)

2. Earn 2 points everytime you use the #racetonantucket and tag @charmcityrun and @saucony on Instagram or Twitter*

3. Earn 10 points when you join the Find Your Strong Facebook Group and post your story to the page. Click here to join the group and post your story. (Please note: If you entered our contest last year, you are welcome to post the same story to the group and get your points! We will count one store per individual)

4. Earn 10 points when you attend a Charm City Run or VITA store event in July. Check out the schedule here. Be sure to let us know when you arrive so you get your points! (Please note: Races, Training Runs and Packet Pick-Ups at the store do not count)

5. NEW! Get 10 extra points for trying on new Saucony styles at any Charm City Run location (one per contestant, starting July 18th)

Prizes and how to win:

Prizes will be awarded once you reach certain levels

When you hit 15 points, you will receive a FREE Race to Nantucket t-shirt (eligible for the first 100 participants to reach this level).

When you hit 35 points, you will be entered to receive a $100 Charm City Run gift card (we will draw the winners on August 1st). 

The participant with the most points on August 1st will be the grand prize winner. Prize include airfare, hotel, and meals for two, as well as race entry and entry into the Charm City Run half marathon training program for the winner. Race weekend is October 7-9, 2016. In the event of a tie, we will choose the winner at random.
