Top 10 Run It Fast – Club Finalists for Garmin 310xt Give Away

Top 10 Run It Fast – Club Finalists for Garmin 310xt Give Away

When we launched Run It Fast – The Club ten weeks ago, we promised a brand-spanking-new Garmin 310xt would be given away to one of the first 150 members to join.

We got to 150 members pretty quickly, and it’s time now to select which RIF-Club member will win the Garmin.

The drawing is going to consist of two drawings. In the first drawing, I’m going to use Random Number Generator to select 10 different Run It Fast – Club numbers. These ten members, along with their RIF #’s, will be listed below.

Tomorrow I’ll use the Random Number Generator again using the #’s 1-10 (as labeled below) to decide who the winner will be.

And the 10 Finalists Are…

  1. RIF #64 – Leah Harrison
  2. RIF #90 – Marcia Larsen
  3. RIF #23 – Jennifer Lazar
  4. RIF #32 – Scott Lochridge
  5. RIF #141 – Brian Wooldridge
  6. RIF #61 – Amanda Cottingham
  7. RIF #18 – Rick Jarvis
  8. RIF #15 – Amber Goetz-Bouchard
  9. RIF #85 – Brett Beckham
  10. RIF #36 – Bryan Snyder

So these are the lucky ten that will have their name in the hat tomorrow for the Garmin 310xt.

Why Doesn’t Garmin Have a Solar Powered Running Watch?

My good running friend, Chris Estes, and I often ask each other, “Why doesn’t Garmin have a solar powered running watch?

We live in a day in age where many things are solar powered.

Sure, Garmin has the 310XT that has a near 20-hour battery life, but for those of us that run extreme ultras of 100-miles+ that just isn’t nearly long enough.

I am fortunate enough to have the 310XT and my old 305 that I usually tag-team to get me through a 100 but it’s not ideal.  Either I have to wear both throughout the entire race or try to figure out which drop bag to leave the 305 in for when the 310XT will die.

How hard would it be to have a mini solar panel on the Garmin watch-face to power it once the battery life wore down or to extend it?  12 hours of sunlight would have to be worth something.

I posed the question on Twitter and many of you agreed or had your own solutions you replied with:

According to the numerous replies I received, the market is there for a solar or kinetic powered GPS watch.

Can Garmin make it happen?

Garmin, are you listening?  If you aren’t, then your competition likely is…
