This year we challenge you to share what makes you feel connected, confident and STRONG. Check out our NEW season-long #MOTRstrong Instagram Contest and capture your most meaningful moments for a chance to win some great prizes from our partners!
What makes you #MOTRstrong?
We’ve chosen four categories that are meaningful to the Moms on the Run 18-week training experience. Take a photo of one or more of these categories and post them to Instagram with #MOTRstrong and #MomsOnTheRun to enter the contest. One winner will be announced at the end of each month for May, June, July and August. We’ll also highlight winning entries on our Facebook page.
Here’s what we’re looking for:
- #BestScenery: Show us those gorgeous lakes, trails, skylines, post-storm rainbows or other beautiful settings you’re lucky enough to enjoy during a workout or race. Every grueling interval or plank is made more enjoyable because, #BestScenery!
- #LoveMyTeam: Your teammates inspire you. They cheer you up when you’re having a bad day (or bad run). They make you laugh so hard that you snort water out of your nose. Share photos that show us why you love your teammates, even if you couldn’t possibly fit all of them in one photo.
- #Unstoppable: Whether you encounter injury-related setbacks or challenges of a completely different type, we want to see what keeps you going. What motivates you to be #Unstoppable?
- #MOTRselfie: Headed somewhere recognizable on a work trip or family getaway? Or just capturing the fun spirit of you and your best runner friends (BRFs)? Snap a selfie with a local landmark while wearing your MOTR gear.
If you’re not on Instagram but want to join the conversation “just for fun,” post your pics to Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest using the same hashtags.
- Must be 18 or older to participate.
- Must post photo to Instagram with #MOTRstrong, #MomsOnTheRun and category hashtag to enter.
- Moms on the Run staff will review Instagram posts and pick one (1) winner each month (in May, June, July and August) based on creativity, number of categories submitted, number of photos/posts submitted, number of likes and staff favorites.
