Hey, runners! A contest for you.

Earthbound Farm recently announced a contest for runners of all sorts: Two entries to any of the races taking place during the Big Sur International Marathon weekend. This looks super cool so I wanted to share it with all of you. Here's some information from the Earthbound Farm PR folks:

The world-famous Big Sur International Marathon is sold out in all but two race categories but there is still one easy way to gain entrance to this legendary race. Simply “like” Earthbound Farm on Facebook and secure a chance to win one of the healthiest vacations of a lifetime:  a trip for two to scenic Monterey, Calif., and two coveted entries to the 26th Big Sur International Marathon’s events. 
In just one minute, anyone can enter to win this milestone of an experience. From Feb. 22 through March 15, those who “like” Earthbound Farm on Facebook and take our Healthy Lifestyle Quiz, will be entered into Earthbound Farm’s Big Sur Marathon Sweepstakes!

Run, walk, or watch — there's no more beautiful place to do any of these activities than Big Sur, often called “the most magnificent meeting of land and sea in the world.” Runner’s World named the Big Sur International Marathon one of the three best marathons in America and “the nation’s Best Destination Marathon,” and said it's one to put on "your life list."
As a long-time presenting sponsor of the Big Sur International Marathon’s 10.6- and 9-mile Walks, Earthbound Farm is offering the lucky grand prize winner two guaranteed entries to any of the following events on May 1, 2011:
  • The Big Sur International Marathon (the competitive 26.2-mile run, sold out since October!)
  • The 21-Miler (a non-competitive 21-mile walk or run)
  • The 10.6-Mile Walk presented by Earthbound Farm (a non-competitive 10.6-mile walk or run)
  • The 9-Mile Walk presented by Earthbound Farm (a non-competitive 9-mile walk or run).
  • The Big Sur 5K Race (a competitive walk or run)

The grand prize also includes roundtrip airfare for two to Monterey, accommodations for two at the beautiful Portola Hotel & Spa, a post-marathon spa treatment for two, a new iPod® Touch for chronicling the experience on Facebook and $500 cash (total retail value: $4,500).

Good luck!
