This post, and the accompanying contest, are sponsored by PowerBar. After my personal experience with the NYC Marathon this is an opportunity I really wanted to share with you all.
This past year about 80,000 runners entered the TCS New York City Marathon lottery, but only about 20,000 were selected for the race. I know how both sides of that lottery feel, the pain of being rejected and the joy when I finally made it in. I entered the lottery for 3 years before I was finally selected to run the race last year in 2016. The TCS NYC Marathon was always the number one race on my bucket list and I know so many other runners have big dreams surrounding the race as well.
PowerBar wants to help make those dreams come true. This year, PowerBar wants to offer those who found themselves unlucky after the lottery drawing on March 2nd another shot at getting a bib. And for those hundreds of runners who found themselves on the “Did Not Finish” list from marathons past due to injuries, fatigue or just a bout of bad luck (this is me from my very last Run Donna marathon, my first DNF), PowerBar is offering the do-over they so desperately want and need.
PowerBar believes everyone deserves a Clean Start, so to help launch the new Clean Whey product line, they are offering 17 deserving athletes the chance to approach the starting line at the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon. 26.2 miles. 17 Clean Starts. A lifetime of memories running NYC.
From now through April 12, 2017, you can visit PowerBarCleanStart.com and share why you deserve a Clean Start at the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. Winners will receive:
– a race bib (entry to the race)
