blog by Kathryn Przybyla • August 30, 2012 @ 10:56am
UPDATE: Congrats to our winners! Looking for more prizes? You can still enter our Music Is Art contest to win VIP passes to the festival.
Tweet us your greatest athletic achievement and you’ll be entered to win free entrance to the Finn McCool 4-Mile Odyssey on Sept. 8 at Cazenovia Park. The contest runs today until 4:30 p.m. EST.
Since we were having issues with our comments section on the website, all you need to do is send a tweet to @BuffaloDotCom telling us what your greatest athletic achievement is in 140 characters or less.
Five randomly selected winners can climb the walls, slog through the mud, shoot down giant slip-and-slides and more as they navigate the four-mile course. The exhilaration from these races has taken the country by storm, as the Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder are immensely popular. Usually, entrance into the race runs for $60, so you’re getting a tremendous value.
Here are a few examples of tweets from the Buffalo.com crew:
Julia—@jbethjs: I completed a 75 mile canoeing & hiking trip across Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks. @BuffaloDotCom
Katie—@_Katie_Costello: When I rolled down a hill in Amish country and managed not to vom up my timbits. @BuffaloDotCom
SJ—@sjvelasquez: Greatest athletic achievements: 2nd place at midatlantic region Irish dance championships; running half-marathon, not dying. @BuffaloDotCom
Ben—@BK77: I once poured in 27 points during a Dunkirk City League Basketball game. Yes, we lost. BUT SHOOTERS DON’T CARE. @BuffaloDotCom
Kat—@katprz: Winning a women’s singles tennis tournament with an ace on the final point. Pretty baller. @BuffaloDotCom
Get your tweets in by 4:30 p.m. today and we’ll announce the five winners by 5 p.m. Good luck!
