I thought I would be willing to do anything to win a free trip to the Hong Kong Marathon in February 2009. But, after reading this Facebook promo, I realized that I’m more chicken than I thought. Here’s the promo:
Win a trip to the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon!
The second Facebook competition is back, and like the marathon this year, it is bigger and better than ever!
Stand a chance to win a trip to Hong Kong to take part in the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2009, happening on 8 February 2009!
Write a post on the group’s Facebook Discussion Board’s thread, and tell us the craziest thing you would do on 7 December to show the 49,999 other runners what the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon means to you.
The selected winner will then be informed on 6 December, and he or she will have to carry out the idea during the run in order to claim the prize.
That last sentence just does it for me. I could go on and on about the crazy, funny things I could possibly do, but if I have to carry them out before I get my hands on those free tickets then—uhm—excuse me but I may come down with a cold on race day.
Just for fun, let’s answer a similar question: What would be the craziest, wackiest thing you would do in a local race of 500 runners to win, let’s say, an all expense paid trip and entrance to the New York City Marathon 2009?
