Since Skurka and Sam are both out on WT2-LDB right now I figured I'd take up the slack.
Admit it. Part of you has always wanted to be a model athlete.
Here's your chance to be featured on our new website. GoLite has a new website, and we're ready to embark on a new adventure. So we're launching a contest to find four everyday athletes to be featured on our website and in our ads. Not to mention, you'll get a load of free gear if you're chosen.
Here's how you do it. Go to golite.com and take a look at our current model athletes. Notice each athlete has their own "Therefore I GoLite" headline, which describes how they live sustainably or inspire others to get outdoors. Using their headlines as examples, pen your own "Therefore I GoLite" line that tells the world how you live the GoLite values.
Enter to win. Email us your personal story at email@example.com. What's your outdoor passion? Trail-running? Hiking? Backpacking? Backcountry Touring? Traveling? Tell us how you inspire others to get outdoors and/or how you are making a difference by living an eco-friendly lifestyle. Tell us about your favorite trail, and why the people you hang out with would tell us you are the perfect candidate. Then attach a couple photos of you in the outdoors. Make sure you tell us your name and where you live. Last but certainly not least, don't forget to include your handspun "Therefore I GoLite" line into the subject of your email. Just for sending us your story, we'll email you a coupon code for 25% off at golite.com. And four of you will be chosen to win $500 worth of GoLite gear and your place in GoLite history as a mod-lete.
Too much trouble for you, that's OK. You can support what we're doing by becoming a Facebook fan. Just leave us a comment with your "Therefore I GoLite" line, and we'll hook you up with a 15% off coupon. Just for showing us a little love.
Enter today. You've got from now until the 28th to enter, so take a tiny break from the trail and get on it. Oh, and tell your friends.
Submissions will be accepted from 9/3/2009 until 9/28/2009. GoLite will select each of the four winners who must reside in the U.S. Click here to read the official contest rules and regulations.
