Guess My Time, Win Crap

OKay, so my multi crap prize contest disappeared faster than Dobby the Elf from Harry Potter. But guess what? Chicken Butt.


It’s Race Week and it’s time for another contest! Here are the Rules:

1) Leave a time you think I will complete the Event as a comment to this post.

Event: Fireball 5k Road Race website

2) You can enter as many times as you want, but only your most recent entry will be your official guess

3) This will be an Over/Under format, meaning that you time will count whether your time is over or under my official time

4) You can enter as long as Comments are allowed for this post, which is typically through Race at some point

Fireball 5k is run at 9 pm on THURSDAY JULY 3rd

5) The Official Time as reported at the event website will be the End-all-Be-all result. Should no result be posted, then my watch time will be used

Results for this Event are (eventually) posted at: KTC.ORG

6) Winners will have to send me their postal address to gain their prize. Giving me their address subjects them to such things as world domination, Christmas Cards, and other random items (and sometimes embarrassing items) sent to their homes.

7) There are no restriction for past winners… Enter and Win and Enter Again.

8) All submissions must be made as a comment unless you are technical incompetent, then I will accept other forms of submission such as carrier pigeon, smoke signals, tea leafs, chicken bones, etc

9) Is my favorite number, so I wanted the Rules to go to 9, so, uh, have fun!

The Crap Prize for which you are competing is:

Some Book of Quotes that I can find at our local Used Bookstore

    I hate being the first guesser, but I will start with an even 23:00.

    9pm? Man, that is pretty late to be running a race!

    I will guess 23:50. If it’s anywhere near as crowded as the race I’ll be running on July 4th (~3000), I’m thinking you might not be able to really go as fast as you’d like. I’m hoping to finish around 24:00.

    23:30! That’s my guess. Good luck P3! I’m rooting for ya!
