Each year, close to 20 percent of the participants in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon qualify for the Boston Marathon. (No surprise there – you guys continue to impress every October!) However, you don’t need to be a Boston Marathon qualifier to join the fun of the Boston Marathon!
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 Visa gift card! The contest runs from April 12-19, just before the start of the Boston Marathon on April 20th. Post your best guess of the times for the fastest finishers on our Facebook wall. Make sure to get specific – it could all come down to the second!
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 Visa gift 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 within the time frame.
Ready, set, guess!
