Did you know that each year, nearly 20 percent of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon participants qualify for the Boston Marathon? (Not surprising – after all, you guys are awesome in every way!) But whether you’re lacing up for Boston or kicking back to watch and relax, you can participate in the marathon fun!
To celebrate one of the biggest races of the year, we’re bringing back our Boston Marathon Guess-a-thon Contest and giving you FOUR chances to win a $100 gas card! The contest starts today and runs until 9 a.m. on April 21, just before the start of the Boston Marathon. Post your best guess of the times for the fastest finishers on our Facebook wall, Twitter page and Instagram posts. Make sure to get specific – it could all come down to the seconds!
Here’s how you can win.
Guess the finishing times for:
- Fastest male from Ohio
- Fastest female from Ohio
- Fastest American male
- Fastest American female
Four winners will be chosen – one for each category – and will each receive a $100 gas card!
Contest rules: Winners may only win once, and we will accept the next best guess in order to determine the winner if one participant guesses the right time in more than one category. If ties arise, we will pick a name out of a hat to determine the winners. Share your best guess on our Facebook timeline, Twitter, or Instagram post within the time frame. Also, be sure to include @Cbusmarathon in your Twitter response so that we see it!
Ready, set, guess!
