A Busy Weekend Ahead and Local Event Updates…

Good morning everyone!  We have such a busy weekend ahead and I want to make sure to hip you to all the great deals, races, etc. going on!

Disney Expo and Garmin
If any of you are planning on running in the Disneyland Half Marathon this weekend, please be sure to stop by the Garmin booth at the expo and visit your good ol’ friendly Village Runner staff.  We’ll be working back to back long days so friendly familiar faces would be nice!  Also, if you are interested, we will be covering sales tax at the expo so you’ll save a nice chunk of moolah on any Garmin watches, PLUS, if you have an old Garmin watch that you are willing to mail in, Garmin has a $50 trade-in that expires tomorrow, 8/31/12 (trade-in must be postmarked by 9/15/12)!  Here’s a link for more details on that:  http://villagerunnerracing.blogspot.com/2012/07/50usd-forerunner-trade-in-offer-from.html

If any of you are interested in running in either the RNR Los Angeles on October 28th or the RNR Pasadena in February of 2013, use the discount code “VILLAGERUNNER” to save $10 off your registration. The code expires in January so be sure to sign up soon before you forget!
