Finally, those poor tradeshow-appointment-making skills can finally pay off.
If you've got an ORSM calendar full of those dreaded climbing-wall-to-shoeville half-mile laps, it's time to join the Ahnu Footwear Make it Count Challenge, If your calendar is long enough, you might just be able to head home from Outdoor Retailer with a new Specialized mountain bike.
To enter, get to Ahnu Footwear (29167w) as fast as humanly possible once the OR show starts on Tuesday morning. A two-minute registration process will get you a Plus 3 account -- which automatically records and logs your miles -- as well as a nifty little GPS system or pedometer. Each day, after you've endured a thousand laps around the Salt Palace, you just log your miles into your account and Ahnu will do the rest.
For every person that enters the Make it Count Challenge, Ahnu Footwear will donate $5 to The Conservation Alliance. The daily leaders will also have a donation made in their name ... $500 for the day one and day two leaders, and $1000 for the final day's big kahuna. And if you're spotted wearing an official Ahnu/Plus 3 race bib during the course of the show, you could also win one of 100 prizes from Ahnu, Aquapac, Teko and GoMotion.
The winner will be toasted over a cold beer on Thursday at 3 pm at the Ahnu Footwear Booth. To stay in touch with the whole thing, Twitter is the way to go. Follow www.twitter.com/MakeItCount2009 to stay up to date on prizes and leaders.
