Race178 Great Giveaway Extravaganza

Want to win a free team entry to the 2015 Reno-Tahoe Odyssey Relay Run Adventure? Or another Race178 race?

We will be giving away the following 8 prizes:

  • Team entry to 2015 RTO
  • Team entry to 2015 Capital Relay (formerly known as the RTO One)
  • Team entry to 2015 Comstock Relay
  • 2015 Leprechaun Race entry
  • 2015 Reno 10 Miler entry
  • 2015 Journal Jog entry
  • 2015 Club178 membership
  • 2014 Run with the Girls 5K entry

What do you have to do to win? One, you need to be a registered participant for the 2014 Journal Jog. Two, you have to be present to choose your prize when we have the Race178 Great Giveaway Extravaganza after the Journal Jog on Sunday morning September 14. Exact time to be announced, probably around 9:20 ish. We will use the 2014 Journal Jog race numbers as the raffle numbers. Each winner will be allowed to pick from the remaining entries based on what is available. For example, if the first person selected picks the 2015 RTO team entry, that prize will no longer be available and the next person selected will pick a prize from the remaining 7 prizes. This process will continue until the 8th person selected will win the last prize available.

Please note that if you are already registered for the 2015 RTO or the 2014 Run with the Girls 5K, we will refund your entry fee.

Also please note that we reserve the right to replace a race entry with an entry for another Race178 event in the unlikely scenario that we do not put on the race for which you chose an entry.

Only adults are eligible for RTO, Capital Odyssey Relay and Comstock Odyssey Relay prizes.

So sign up for this year's Journal Jog, stick around for the Race178 Great Giveaway Extravaganza, and we'll see who takes home which race entries.

Race178 Point Series

Race178 will have an Age-Group Point Series for the Leprechaun Race, Reno 10 Miler, and Journal Jog in 2014. Compete against other runners in your age group and try to win the Point Series!

How does it work? Depending on how you place in your age-group, you will earn points. The most points after the Journal Jog wins!

  • 1st place - 10 points
  • 2nd place - 8 points
  • 3rd place - 7 points
  • 4th place - 6 points
  • 5th place - 5 points
  • 6th place - 4 points
  • 7th place - 3 points
  • 8th place - 2 points
  • 9th place - 1 point

Age-groups (male and female):

  • 19 and under
  • 20-29
  • 30-39
  • 40-49
  • 50-59
  • 60-69
  • 70 and above

PLEASE NOTE: Your age-group will be determined based off the first event you participate in 2014. For example: John turns 40 on March 17 but runs in the Leprechaun Race on March 16. Since John was 39 for the Leprechaun Race, he will be competing in the 30-39 age-group for the Point Series. If there is a tie, the tiebreaker will be the fastest time from the 2014 Journal Jog.
