The Par4Miler at the Valspar Championship #Giveaway

While everyone knows how much I love running, many don't know my love for PGA tournaments. In my former job, we hosted LPGA and Senior tour events and golf tournaments became one of my life. Fast forward many years later, I still work with the PGA in my current job. It's my favorite  event to throw over the year.
So when I was contacted about The Par4Miler during the Valspar Championship, I was pretty excited. This four mile timed race is taking place on  March 6th at Innisbrook Golf Resort. The four mile run will take place on the roads of Innisbrook and the turf of the Copperhead tournament course! If that's not cool enough, the 18th Green is the finish and there will be a Post-Race Party in the Hospitality Suites.
I don't want to sound like an infomercial by saying that's not all - but that's not all!!!
With your Par4Miler registration, you get a lot of fun perks!  I have a giveaway for one bib so be sure to enter at the end of this post.

  1. Why do I want to win this race bib? WHY? Why on earth WOULDN'T I?!

    I love (despite my shortcomings on the course) golf. But I keep playing, because out of my 100+ strokes in a given round, I hit THAT ONE so perfectly and I foolishly think, "Ya know, things might actually start to turn around for me!" But I digress...
    The Valspar is a great tournament with a top-notch field every year. The fan experience is always wonderful! It's close to home, I get to play hooky from work and the course is incredible--any chance you're also giving away a round at Innisbrook?! If so, PUT ME DOWN!!
    Oh, I also fancy myself a runner and I would love the chance run Copperhead!
    That's why. ;-)
