Who doesn’t love a deal? My two favorite days of the year for scoring a race registration discount? National Running Day, which takes place annually in June, and CYBER MONDAY!!!
I am not a shopper, so Black Friday means nothing to me other than the best day of the year to avoid crowds. But Cyber Monday, now, I can get into that! Deals, specials, discounts on everything from carpeting to compression socks, Hi Res TV’s to running shoes, and best of all? Race discounts!!
Many race directors take advantage of this special online buying day to offer up one-day-only deals off race registration. It’s simply one of the best days of the year to sign up for your next race, your next marathon, your next destination race weekend.
So get ready! I know of a few races that are planning big discounts. Discounts too good to pass up! So, keep your eyes on Facebook and Twitter come Monday, and get to Googling first thing in the morning scouring the internet for those deals!
All words that any marathoner loves to hear! Revel Race Series has all of these, and much more. Like free race photos, free personalized highlight videos, great medals and race shirt.
Price increases are next week for the race in Canyon City and the Rockies event. If you register before the increase, you instantly save $10. You can save an additional $10 if you join any of the teams I have created for the three Revel Races this year.
Posted yesterday on their website, Facebook and Twitter, the All American Marathon and Mike to Mike Half Marathon is approaching quickly.
Today, now only 74 days away, I wanted to let you know that even if you missed out on the discount yesterday, you can still grab 10% off current registration rates by using code “13AMB2015”. As an Ambassador for this awesome race I have been provided with some giveaway swag to those that sign up using my code. So, if you sign up for the race and use discount code “13AMB2015”, let me know and I will personally send you a race logo cotton t-shirt, or race logo bag. Check them out…
I will run this giveaway for two weeks, concluding on January 21, 2015. (Or while supplies last)
Check out the race website for current pricing, and remember, the discount code I provided is good for any of the races including the 5k. Just let me know in the comment section when you sign up, and I will make arrangements for your swag to be shipped to you!
Now who doesn’t love a race discount and some free swag?
I don’t know about you, but I am not a big fan of malls. I prefer, and try to complete all of my shopping for the holidays and otherwise, online. Cyber Monday is often a great day to find deals and sales for everything from TV’s to tablets, socks to shoes.
I’ve looked online this morning now for over an hour. What have I found? Nothing! A few things I’ve spotted for my sons, are not available in their sizes. I think part of this problem is that a lot of online stores have been having these “Cyber Monday” deals now for a week or more. I myself bought a pair of running shorts from Dick’s about a week ago at a very good price. I had never tried this particular style of short before, so I only bought one pair and wanted to test it out. It worked great on two runs since being delivered last week. I want more! I go online to buy more, and they are only available in XL. WTF?
I’ve been on the lookout, too, for online deals for race registrations today. What have I come up with? A big fat zero. This is where I need your help. Have you seen any good deals on races being offered at a discount today? Please share!!! How about great deals on running shoes and apparel? If you’ve seen any can’t miss offerings please share.
