You all know I appreciate a good bargain. I also love running and think signing up for a race is the perfect motivation. Well, I just came across a new marketing gimmick that combines all three.
Active.com is offering special discounts for the Las Vegas Marathon, which sounds like a rock concert spread over 26.2 miles, and the Los Angeles Marathon. The LV Marathon is soon – Dec. 2. You can opt to run the half marathon, if training to run 26.2 miles in less than two months sounds as crazy to you as it does to me. Sign up by the Oct. 10 deadline and save some dough on your registration fees — $15 on marathon and $7 on half marathon. You will receive a $10 discount if you register for the March 2 L.A. Marathon by the same deadline.
Here's the double whammy motivational savings: Sign up for both marathons and receive $30 on the combined registration fee! What a deal!
