How would you like to run 26.2 miles with Scott Jurek, American record-holder for a 24-hour run and seven-time winner of the Western States Endurance Run? The ultramarathoner is coming to the Big Easy and wants to help you rock your goal time at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Mardi Gras Marathon. One of the four pace groups will win the right to this celebrity pacer — but which one will triumph?
Just visit the Brooks Running Facebook page before February 9, 2011, and “like” your preferred pace: 3:00, 3:15, 3:30, or 3:45. The group with the most “likes” will win, so encourage your friends to vote. In addition to having Scott as a pacer, winning group members can attend a special meet and greet with Scott at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Mardi Gras Health & Fitness Expo presented by Power Balance, receive a special “I ran with Scott Jurek” Podium T (available for pickup at the expo for the first 100 pace group members), and have the chance to win a head-to-toe Brooks Rock ‘n’ Roll outfit.
