Free airfare to Boston to be given away at Lake Chelan 2013

This year, the Lake Chelan Shore to Shore Marathon will be the final 2014 Boston Marathon qualifier in the Pacific Northwest.

Given the horrific bombings that occurred at Boston this past April, Boston Marathon organizers are anticipating a record turnout at the 2014 race as runners worldwide come to pay tribute to the victims and to make it clear they will not be deterred by acts of terror.

To aid in that effort, the Lake Chelan Marathon will be giving away free airfare (a roundtrip ticket) to Boston from anywhere in the United States to a runner who qualifies for Boston at our Sept. 7 race. If more than person qualifies that day, we will hold a drawing to determine the winner. There is no extra cost to participate in this drawing. Anyone who enters and qualifies for Boston that day will be eligible for the prize.

The free airfare is compliments of Devil’s Gulch Drinkery in Cashmere and its owner, Troy Lindsey. Thank you so much for your generosity!
