Spring is finally here, but don’t throw out your winter trainers yet! I’m going to give away a pair of K’Ona lightweight trainers from K-Swiss to one person who can prove that they put their winter trainers through hell. Here’s what you need to do for a chance to win.
- Take a picture of your winter trainers. One picture only, but pick an angle that makes them look their worst. Mud stains, torn tread, toe holes… What has winter done to your shoes?
- Send that picture to trainerpics [at] bencollins [dot] org OR post it on twitter after this this text: “win @kswiss K’Ona running shoes from @triBC – post a pic of trainers uglier than these:” (there should be plenty of characters left for your pic).
- I will post all picture submissions right here on my blog, and the winner will be picked by a panel of independent judges (to be revealed). If you submit via twitter, make sure you follow me so I can notify you if you win.
Getting your friends to leave comments on my blog in order to persuade the judges is perfectly alright.
If you win, I’ll contact you for size, address, and preference for which country you would like on your shoes. (The US flag is cool, but the Brazil Flag K’onas are bitchin’!)
The winner will be chosen on April 11th – Kick off day of the 2010 ITU World Championship Series. The first race is in Sydney, Australia.
Now, I’m supposed to make some clarifications about the contest: This contest is with bencollins.org, no purchase is necessary, the opinions and views expressed on bencollins.org do not represent the views/opinions of K-Swiss Inc. (Hopefully I covered everything I needed to.) K-Swiss is providing the shoes that I’m giving to the winner, but that’s it. I want to thank K-Swiss for their enthusiasm in supporting me, and for letting me do something fun like this contest.
That’s it! Now go snap some pictures of those running shoes and send them this way!
