The #Commit Around the Clock Relay is the ultimate relay team of all inov-8 committed athletes. We want to see how many miles can we log in 24 hours all around the world. It is a virtual relay, where you tweet your run. Legs start on the hour and you run as many miles as the hour is, i.e. 5 at 5am, 6 at 6am, 7 at 7am, 3 at 3pm, etc. There will be prizes for runners at every hour, and the grand prize will be a pre-release pair of running shoes from inov-8s new Road-X-Treme line due to come out in Spring 2013!
On Saturday, September 29th, you will pick a time for your run, and run as many miles as the hour is, i.e. if it is 7am, you run 7 miles, if it is 8am you run 8 miles, if it is 9am you run 9 miles. Since it will be global, there will be different people doing different distances all hours of the day, but that’s okay, we just want to see how many miles we can log!
Before heading out for your run, tweet to @inov8Run your planned mileage based on your time (5@5! or 6@6!) with the hashtag #CACrelay and your shoe size (in case you win!). Then check back in on Twitter (follow the hashtag) when your done to let us know how it went and see if you won a prize!
We will award a t-shirt every hour and as we accumulate miles, we will also give away shoes! At the 155th mile, we’ll give away a pair of Road-X 155s, at the 233rd mile, we will give away the Road-X 233, at the 255th mile, we'll give away a pair of Road-X 255s. Then after another 155 miles, we'll give away some more Road-X 155s. So, if you want a chance at winning shoes and a t-shirt, you may have to run twice…which we know you all can and want to do!
At the end, we will select a grand prize winner to receive a brand new pair of pre-release inov-8 Road-X-Tremes which will available in stores Spring 2013.
Let’s see how many miles we can log next weekend, and maybe we can even break some records!
