Find out all about the details of the mega giveaway to celebrate our 5th blog anniversary! Over 25 prizes to be given, including tablets, upgrades and more!

Good afternoon! As I had mentioned, Running with Miles will turn 5 this month and I could not be more happy or thrilled with where it has come since its beginning! Every year has been a better year than the previous one and this year is no exception.

The 5th Anniversary Mega Giveaway Details – Over 25 Prizes!

As a gesture of my thanks and gratitude to the thousands of you that make the time each day to stop by and read the posts, as well as applying through the links that help to support this site, I want to give away a lot of stuff! This giveaway is going to have a lot of things and will be done over the course of the next few days so I just wanted to have a single post to let you know that will be coming and what the rules are for this.

Check back here each day if you want to see the link for that day’s giveaway or make sure you stay tuned to the blog!

Every day, the winners will be announced for the previous day’s giveaways.

What Are the Gifts?

In trying to keep in the spirit of the blog and the interests of the readers here, I have accumulated several things that I think might be helpful to everyone. Here is what we will be giving away over the next few days:

  • Several Kindle Fire tablets
  • Several Kindle eReaders
  • Several Garmin Vivoactive Fitness Trainers
  • A Couple of Garmin GPS watches
  • American Airline Upgrade certificates (good for upgrading any ticket to the next class of service aboard AA, if there is availability)
  • Small power blocks for keeping your phones charged on the go
  • A few SPIbelts
  • A couple of gift cards
  • Lounge passes
  • 15,000 Hyatt points

I think you will agree that there are at least a couple things on that list that anyone would like – even to have to give for a present to someone else! 🙂

How Will This Giveaway Work?

I have always done comment-based giveaways but the last time I did one of these, it was quite difficult to count through the hundreds of comments to find the one that had selected – and I had to do this for each day! 🙂 So, I checked out a couple of widgets for the giveaways but decided to go back to the comments because I love to hear what you all have to say! I may ask a question each day that you can choose to answer in your comment or you do not have to but it can be a good way to let me know of some ways that this blog could be better.


So, each day you can leave one comment. Every day will be a separate giveaway and everyone can enter once on the blog. The giveaway will run from the time the post goes live until 11:59PM PT the same day. Any comments left after that will be deleted from the post and will not count.

Everyone will be able to enter every day for the giveaway on that day. I will keep a list and links above for you to find the right giveaway for that day.

Bonus Entries!

If you would like a bonus entry for each day, you can follow me on Twitter and tweet about these giveaways using the hashtag #RwMGiveaway. I will take the tweets for each day and assign it as a bonus entry for that day. You do not have to do this but if you do, you will get an extra entry for following me and tweeting with the hashtag.

Every giveaway is open to US residents only and you must be 18 or older to be eligible. I will use to select each day’s winners and the order the entries were picked will be the order that each winner will get to choose which prize they want from the day. All decisions about the giveaway are made solely by me and will be final.

And that is it! Have fun and I am really looking forward to sending out over 25 prizes over the next week to the best blog readers around! Thanks for coming by and visiting and I hope we will see you more as we enter out 6th year!
