Get yours, and get these great prizes, too:

Did you ever think you’d lunch with a rock czar in an oceanfront treehouse? (You read that right. I’ll explain in a minute.) Or zip up a scenic trail on your one-of-a-kind, cherry-red, custom-built Tahiti Skyhawk motorbike? How about taking a cruise of the Galapagos Islands and watching a fiery sunset silhouette six-foot tortoises? Or enjoying the Colorado mountains with two extreme endurance athletes committed to showing you (what else?) an extremely good time?

Now you can. Or, if you just want tons of top-of-the-line outdoor gear, expert advice on everything from relationships to real estate to running form, and access to my log from a 2004 summit of Mt. Everest (good for a chuckle and a few gasps), you can have those, too.

We’re offering these bonuses to you for helping us put Running on Empty onto the bestseller lists the first week it’s out. Buy 1, 3, 25 or 100 copies today, and every gift package is worth at least twice the cost of the books. (Some up to 10 times!) More than $30,000 in great experiences and gear are up for grabs.

This is THE promotion for this book, and I won’t be repeating it.


  • For the New York Times bestseller list, only hardcover books shipped to U.S. addresses qualify. So that means this contest applies only to those sales. You can make your purchase from AmazonBarnes & NobleBooks-A-Million, and independent bookstores, either online or in person at your local store.
  • If you don’t need all the books you buy, consider donating them to a worthwhile organization (library, school, company, charity, race or other event). We can help you figure out where to donate if you’re purchasing 25 or more copies.
  • This giveaway begins at 8 a.m. EST on 4/14 and lasts exactly 52.5 hours and ends just after noon EST on Sunday, April 16. [Oops! Just realized that Saturday is April 16. So we’re extending the deadline to Sunday, April 17.] (Why? It took me 52.5 days to run across the United States, so I want to give away all these great bonus packages in 52.5 hours. It’s poetic … or gimmicky. Take your pick.) It’s strictly first come, first served, and “limited to 3” means the fourth person doesn’t get it.

On your mark … Get set … Go!
